Obviously you work for them or know them. That is okay and you should defend your company or friends. However, your use of the word "stold" and other misuse of the English language is not helping them out.

They probably have to bend over backwards to stay in business now after they have been doing all of there customers wrong for such a long time...

If I have to reveal who I am, I will. But no, I'm not an employee but I've been in the business for almost 20 years. Safeway is an OUTSTANDING company that had one employee develop a dependence. I know EVERYTHING about this business. EVERYTHING. There are four companies in this area that do the job right and Safeway is one of them. I'd be happy to tell the other three, but it doesn't matter. If you don't have the right company doing your termite agreement, you are in for a rude awakening one day.

Wanna see what a crook looks like? And you voted for the clown. Believe me, he rips off more than $4700 off of people. This crook beats people out of money every day. Get your head out your butts.

The correct word is STOLE not STOLD.

sigh..... Thank you for that. I think we all knew what they meant. I get so tired of this sort of superiority attitude. Who cares if the grammar and spelling are perfect? What counts is a business was being besmirched based on false information and someone came on and without profanity or insults set the record straight.

Listen your bad grammar just shows how stupid you are! You sound like you just fell off the tater truck around the corner! When you use bad grammar and misspellings people do not take you seriously! A lot of people care if the spelling and grammar are correct and you should be called out on it! Go back to the third grade!

On the contrary, as a bystander in this argument, with no information about the company in question, I was immediately impressed that someone could actually disagree without being insulting. They saw that the facts we're wrong and corrected them. I did notice the misspelled words and bad grammar, but I never judged them for it. But then I went on to read a couple of well written post, that though the grammar and spelling was perfect, the attitude was nasty. You can tell a whole lot more about a person by their attitude than you can by their spelling. Most people aren't going to read your post and say wow that's a really smart person. Nope, most people are going to do like I did. They're going to say, "what a snot." Either way "Just saying" did the right thing, even if they didn't live up to your intelligence standards.

I agree with happy dad. Basic manners is more important than basic grammar.

I tried to take this seriously, but with an exclamation point after every sentence, it's just a bunch of unintelligible mumbo jumbo.

Look. Safeway (the owners) were in on it WITH the police. This individual was a huge FAMILY VALUES church going hypocrite. But I don't judge him because he had a problem. OPIATES!

A company makes a product called suboxone. You can keep an opiate addict TOTALLY safe for about $2 per day. Maybe even less.

But here's whAt your politicians have done to you. First, they allow the drug companies to get folks hooked on the pills. Once that's done, instead of just letting them pay $2 per day, they make them go to a cash doctor. First visit is $400. Then go every week for $150. After a few months, they only go twice per month totaling.$300 for the doctor and $240 for the suboxone.

$60 per month solves this persons problem totally.

It doesn't get them high, it just stops the withdrawals.

I'd hate to come home one night and my entire family get killed by a person who needs the drugs, when $2 would have saved my whole family.

SafewAy uses Termidor to the label and there's no such thing as a house treated by Safeway will have termites for 20 years. They also do the best jobs for fungus underneath the house. No I'm not an employer. Don't care if you use them or don't.

If your an idiot, go use Allstate in Blountville.

And you can act like its the company's fault if you want to, but SAFEWAY themselves are the ones that got the guy arrested. They got the cops involved. Nobody else. Better be thankful that there's honest employers out there, especially those coming into your home. If you ask me, this entire experience is a HUGE PLUS FOR SAFEWAY rather than a demerit.

They were in on it with the cops? How does that even make sense? If they were an honest employer they would have let that guy go a long time ago. I even heard the guy was out spraying without certification for a while. Ripping people off isn't honest. What kind of employer sends someone to a persons home in their company truck knowing that they are going to be arrested and publicized? Doesn't sound like a smart business decision to me. Sound more like a lie

I rent from Homestead Properties near ETSU. A while back there was knock at the door. I didn't answer because I had worked late and wasn't expecting anyone. I heard the door open and got up to see what was going on. It was the bug man. The owner, Mrs Carter, had given him permission (in the lease) to come in the apartment to spray when the tenants were not home.

He got up real close to me and looked in my eyes. Now I think he was trying to ascertain whether I was using drugs. I wasn't, and don't, but I could tell he was a low life peice of crap. If this was the same guy it's likely he got away with dozens, if not hundreds, of the same type of robbery.

It's all speculation on your part and means nothing. He had permission to be there and maybe he's also an undercover cop trying to sniff out drugs. Who knows? Either way they called in the police and fired the employee. What more do you want?
