Re: Way OT - Fedex Ground

Have to add my two cents to the wrong address thing.  When I worked with the
Palm nursery before doing the hibs a big part of the owners business was
digging out other peoples palms when they decided they didn't want it
anymore and selling it to somebody who did.  Big bucks in full grown palms.
Anyway he dispatched some guys to dig out a beautiful Canary Island palm and
guess what?  They dug out a 30 foot tall beautiful specimen but severely
damaged the roots in doing it.  The owner of the palm came home and just saw
them finishing up and he was really upset...you see, it was the wrong
address and they pulled the wrong persons palm.  OOPS!
