This is a bunch of crooks. I had them to come and kill the termites a year ago. They were supposed to come in every three months and check for infection. They never came, until today. See, my contract expired and I didn't renew it. So they showed up to make me to renew the contract. I refused. They pulled the bait stations they
installed a year ago out from ground and left. The stations are not reusable, they just pulled them.
So instead of paying them $275 every year to keep the stations I went online - guess what. One can buy exactly same stations $10 each, free shipping. 20 stations = $200. Instead of paying $2,750 in ten years.

You'll put your eye out! Don't poison the whole neighborhood or something.

I thought this was going to be about a new terminal emulator.

Also, I got a idea: if live where it's chronically infested with termites, don't buy a house and shit made out freakin' wood! Hello, McFly!

Heh. This reminds me a story about old salesman teaching young. Young salesman was selling wells. He told everybody the new well is so good it will also fill neighbors wells. Nobody was buying. Old salesman taught him to tell the new well is so powerful it sucks the water out and leaves neighbors wells dry. Success.
Do you think my termites will flee to the neighbors house?

This is _not_ a fake news e, and not affiliated with my crew. Just an honest mistake. The poster said to me to be sorry about the accident, the intermezzo importante sorry.
Just "feeling" being guilty at times.

Jaglover, you OK? You're not from Delaware, are you?

I'm OK, thanks. In any case, I will prefer some local guy next time instead of a nation-wide service.

My default is to prefer local.

Yeah, because Billy-Bob with the "Bugs-R-Us" truck, who graduated vocational school after the 10th grade, he knows more about organic chemistry and civil engineering than a national company.

Billy-Bob is probably buying industry pesticides, not creating them. Neither is he repairing any damage.

Billy-Bob is in business for himself, he is interested in results and good image. These Terminix crooks never came to check the baits, although Sentricon (manufacturer) prescribes checking in 3-4 months.

Billy-Bob probably lives in a brick house.

And his kids probably have wall-eye and third nipple from DDT and shit in the well.
