    I'm going to try to post a link to a local news channel that shows me bailing out a customer who prepaid for the season with another contractor who then ripped her off. I love saving the day :drinkup: especially when they get my phone number and logo in the video:waving:
    lets see if this works...

    Geez, talk about good publicity. Spruce landscape saves the day!

    If I was looking for a plow guy, and saw that on the news, I would sure hire you!

    Let us know if it generates any business. I've always wondered why I've never seen any local commercials for local plow companies or landscape companies. All these lowball furniture stores, lawyers, even local sporting good stores can afford it, so I don't imagine its that expensive.

    GOod Luck!

    LMAO!!! You don't want to know what the first think I was THINKING of when I finally realized who this guy was that was standing at the end of the drive! I had no idea he was going to be there, or even what he wanted. Honestly, he's not the kind of guy that most people are happy to see! He's not exactly known for making people's days OR helping their careers if you know what I mean.
    I initially saw him in my rearview at the end of the drive when I was back dragging, thought he was a neighbor wanting their drive done as well, then all of a sudden he sticks a mic in my face :eek:
    I can tell you cheeks were still gripping the seat when I was on camera while I watched my customer base fade off into the distance! lol:help:

    The new Spruce Landscape moto: "Trying to help out when we can" :drinkup: That is some great PR though. My sound goes out at the end of the video. Does she give you a thank you like she did the news station.
