I signed up for spring/summer/fall services. None of the services has been provided. No one will return repeated phone or e-mail messages.
This is the second year that I signed up for spring/summer/fall services. (Year 1 was satisfactory.) I signed a contract for various services to be provided. To date, no one has shown up to perform any of the services. I can't get anyone to return my repeated phone calls. Nor does anyone respond to repeated e-mails. I've used all of the (somewhat limited) contact information that I have.

Desired Settlement
I want someone to call me and talk to me about what is happening. Better yet, I want the services that I signed up for.

Business' Initial Response
The last time I talked to Ms. ********** on the phone she told me that she did not want us to do any service at her home. I do remember that she was very hard to understand. We had not started anything at that point in time, she had not paid anything in advance. At that point no services had been provided so there was no outstanding bill. So we honored her wish and removed her from out service list and filled her spot with someone from our waiting list. We are sorry for any mix up but we thought that is what she wanted. We wish Ms. ********** our best but we do not have any opening at this time. Thank You!

Consumer's Final Response
(The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.)
I remember that conversation distinctly. What I had said was that I wished to wait for them to de-thatch my lawn until sometime in June because the chemical lawn care company had not put down the crabgrass pre-emergent yet and I was afraid that de-thatching immediately after pre-emergent application would nullify its effects. We also talked about the fact that there was no reason that the bi-weekly string trimming could not occur as usual. Randy agreed that he would get back in touch with me in Mid-June about the de-thatching. Even if he completely misunderstood the entire conversation--which it sounds like he did--there is no reason why he could not return a phone call (of which there were many) or a simple e-mail (ditto) stating what he had thought had happened. It sounds very strongly to me as if something else is going on that he does not wish to elaborate upon. And I really do not appreciate the kind of treatment to which I was subjected.
