A so called "A*** Paving" company erected a sign (simliar to those election campaign signs) in my front lawn near the curb. I called the number on the sign and asked the guy why he did that without my consent. He said if that offended me then he would come over to remove it. About 30 min later a guy was at my door and asked if I called about the sign. I told him he placed an advertisment in my property without my consent. He explained that it was not possible to ask house owners for their consent as they erect up to 20 signs a day. He then said their company had been doing this for more than 10 years and never had any problem. I was the only one so far who called about such matter and it was not "NICE" for me to call them since the sign was only occupying a small spot of my front lawn and it caused no damage to anything and it took him 20 min's to get to my place. He then added it was "BAD" for me to make such a fuss out of this matter.

I just can't believe there is such people around us!!

I should have reported these guys to the Town Councilor in the first place.

Well, when you think about it, whats the big really? You should of just gone and removed the sign yourself. I think there are much more important issues to devote your energy to. IMO.
