5 Bros really are ignorant......

Got an initial secure work order that stated empty lot last week. Went to property and took photos showing APPROXIMATE AREA of lot per GIS map. Very rural property, Subdivided ranch. No fencing, no property corners could be found. This is a chunk out of a 200 plus acre ranch. Usually as a buyer you have a survey done here to put in corners. I get this a few minutes ago.

Please submit bid for initial grass cut and recut bids. 4.9 acres. Please advise the height of grass. Please also submit 15000sqft perimeter cut bids.
Again, i have no property corners and no fences!! No homes within a mile either direction! Perimeter cut around what?? The deer standing in the middle of the field??????? I'm going to call a surveyor and get a bid to survey the property and turn that in to these idiots!!

The lack of common sense and comprehension can be astounding at times.

Professionals are people who can do their job when they don't feel like it.
Amateurs are people that can't do their job even when they do feel like it.

After dealing with some real numb-skulls over the years, this doesn't surprise me a bit. But, I do feel your pain. Makes you want to just strangle the ever loving....deep breath, calming thoughts....there, I'm better now.

Please read in order to avoid back charges:

Vendors are now required to have a satellite in orbit above their coverage areas to avoid these types of issues. Also a surveyor on staff during grass cut season.

This should cover it.

I could only stand one month of them before heaving them. Last straw was a no charge order, and they also changed one of my bids and blamed HUD.

After that I told them I no longer wished to extend them credit

They tried to pull the same thing on us ... telling us we have to paint a house at our cost?!?! I don't think so. They keep calling us for to do initial secures because they don't have anybody. Hmmm ... wonder why. Not happening here.

if you have a smart phone get a app for the coordinates and then go on to the county GIS web site and see if they have the coordinates for t he property. All the time let good paying work be reassigned because 5 brothers is a band of idiots. I too kicked them to t eh curb. They wanted me to reattach a wood framed fence gate for 20 dollars I said NO it would be 150 I have lag bolts and time to get to the job and 1 hour there. "well that does not match up with our estimating program" PACK SAND I told em.


Common sense isn't common any more
