    Growing up we always had a backyard garden. Coming home from school, we didn't raid the fridge, we raided the garden. Baby carrots, washed off under the hose, fresh peas still in the pod, young lettuce. We had it good.

    Fruit trees are a pain in the ass. The bugs and wildlife get most of it.

    Anybody else find it hard to swallow that Canadian kids run home home from school to snack on baby lettuce and peas in a pod?



    No wonder they get free health care..

    "Same machine....same this and that"....................


    If you gave the exact SAME vacuum cleaner to three different individuals, I'd wager that they would use that vacuum cleaner three different ways. Technique, Logic, etc

    Thought I'd get this thread back on track.

    The most important item going to do a carpet cleaning job is the operator themselves, not the machine.

    An anal carpet cleaner will compensate for any deficiencies in his/her equipment to do an outstanding job, even if they only have a portable.

    Of course, a truckmount will allow the technician to be more efficient and get the job done sooner.

    Hi, my name is Bob, and I am an anal carpet cleaner!

    I'm more anal when I watch, then if I'm cleaning.

    You ever walk in a room your guys almost done and you start pointing everything out he did wrong?

    Hey is that a popcorn kernel? Why is there hair on that baseboard?

    Or in Mikes Aunts house a penny?

    She didn't pay him, he's like just leave a penny? Hahaha.

    I really don't want to work for free!

    I do feel some customers strategically place pennies in corners to see if we get those areas or not.

    We start with the baseboards and work towards the center. And yes, Sam, I think so too; we call them "easter eggs."

    Any money found on jobs is left on the counter or window sill where it was found.. Rental or not, that's what I was taught..

    Beside Bob who has his priorities right.....why does it take old scrawny foreigners with accents to kick some sense into some, here.
    Unless you're Canadian. They got it right.

    P.S. Mike. In a few years when you come help pick the fruit, please do not show up unless you're wearing your depends. We're much stricter now in CA. I'm gonna have Jimmy check on you :winky:

    I disagree. All of our equipment has limitations as do we. But I can most definitely clean better now with my WM than I did with my bane. Actually the crb made me a better cleaner to.

    The right tool for the right job is huge. Then the right guy running it.

    I'm sure at some point I will get to give one a serious try.
