It snowed. They didn't plow.

No matter what the contract says he's fucked now. All those customers will be switching to companies that can handle the work load.. not the one little company that bit off more than they could chew and gave up before they even started.

They didn't plow?

It clearly states on the facebook page that they are plowing and will get to their customers as soon as they can and within the terms of their contract.

Do you or CC even comprehend what it is like to run a company that has to go out and plow right now? It doesn't happen instantaneously.

What don't you understand about customer expectations? These people saw their neighbors driveways, subdivisions, streets, etc all being plowed while the company they paid for got snarky on Facebook, flipped the bird and told them "We'll get there when we get there."

He's done. He's going to lose a massive amount of customers because of it and no amount of screaming and yelling and stomping YOUR feet is going to change that fact.

What don't you understand about the fact that they signed a contract and he has stated they will get their driveways plowed with in the terms of that contract?

I don't disagree that his post on facebook was a bit on the snarky side and he should have re-thought what he was posting.

But he never stated half the shit CC is making up and is doing nothing different than any other plow guy out there. You really think they all started plowing Saturday evening and haven't stopped to sleep or eat yet?

As I stated, the COUNTIES sent drivers home and parked trucks to give their guys a rest. Is a private small business not allowed to do the same?

Just accept it. He's ruined. He fucked over his customers and they won't give a shit if they're guys were tired. They expected a service in didn't get it in the expected timeframe. Now he's fucked.

T.C. Has a group that uses something like this and do people in needs sidewalks.
As far as the plow company, I can understand both sides .
And the post about changing the names on trucks. I know people that would plow with a company truck on company time with magnetic sign covering company name. My former co- work never bothered with that just took truck and disappeared. Funny thing he still has his job and I'm the one unemployed .

They expected a service, but did they read the contract they signed?

Hey, you are using one of my businesses now, and generating income for me, even though you are mad. Sounds like I'm a pretty awesome business man since not only did I make you mad, but you're basically paying me to do so.


That is the equivalent of everybody that the landscape company fucked over sending the guy money with their complaints.

Maybe he figured out that a small company that sells a service to a ton of people and can't deliver that service when it's needed most (even though all the other companies are doing just fine) is doomed for failure.

You made me mad? You give yourself way too much credit.

Most of the people complaining to the landscape company probably have already sent the man money. They also signed a contract, which he states he is still within the parameters of and they will still have to pay for his services.

This whole thread is funny. CC called on his forum members to bash a burnt out business owner, which the masses usually love to do, and got next to zero response.
