Pop vs Soda

This “debate” has always intrigued me for some reason.
Apparently it has done the same for others as well – hence this map.
Personally, I say “soda” when making a general reference.
Interestingly, it would seem the southern west coast, center Midwest around St. Louis, and northern east coast all typically share the same term for a soft drink.
And to think the west and east coast will ask us if we grow corn in our front yard.
Believe it or not, you can actually see a bit of history in this map when you start to think about things like the first railroad lines being built across the country.

Beware: TruGreen / ChemLawn Sucks Balls

So continues my luck with companies in general. I swear, anymore, there isn’t a company out there that’s worth a shit. No matter the service or product, I seem to find the ones that absolutely suck ass at what they do.

I’ve been using TruGreen for over a year now. My yard is not the greenest on the block, I still have crab grass and other weeds. I don’t know what their service is like in your area, but in my area (and apparently other areas) – it’s not worth the price.

My yard looked better when I did all the maintenance myself. The only reason I chose a company to help with fertilization was because I’m very limited on time. Well I can plainly see that the limited amount of time I have to spend on that would be more beneficial than paying this sorry ass company called TruGreen. They pretty much have done nothing to help my lawn become greener or stop weeds. So what the hell am I hiring them for? I don’t know. What I do know is that after my last scheduled treatment, they are history.

Doing just a bit of research, I see I am not the only one who has been unlucky enough to find out that TruGreen / ChemLawn blows ape dick. See: consumeraffairs.com, search Google for trugreen sucks, or search Google for chemlawn sucks and you will see I’m not the only one completely dissatisfied with their service.
