I am having a hard time with this turning the other cheek thing. I am also having a hard time praying for my enemies, because right now I want a heaping pile of burning coals to land on their pinheads. Of course, I am speaking of Chemlawn. I paid them $200 a few months ago to kill my weeds and I noticed the only thing taller than my weeds were the telephone poles outside my back door.
Never thought about how close those things were; could this be why my hair is falling out? No, it’s because Chemlawn didn’t spray the Round-up they said they did. Because if they did, my dogs would not be covered in tics and I wouldn’t be covered in poison ivy. I spent the last three days on the telephone with the manager from Tru Green Chemlawn and he couldn’t be more apathetic about my weed problem.
Are you kidding me!!!? How can a lawn guy, a man who has dedicated his life to lawn care not be concerned? The only thing that I can think of is that this man is an impostor. That’s right, a pretender, a bureaucrat; probably has weeds in his own yard. Not my problem, all I know is I am out $200, not counting the $42 for poison ivy kits and tic baths for the dogs. The good news is, I was going to use them for the fall and obviously have decided against that. For now I will turn the other cheek and pray for them. And tell every other human being that I come in contact with not to use their services until they get someone who really cares about lawn care. Until then, I will care for my own lawn.
Here's hoping the grass is greener where you are.
