This is a first post in a series about my bandit sign hanging experiences and tips.
This past weekend my partner and I went out at our usual 5:30am to hang bandit sign. We’ve pretty much retired the stakes and the staples for nails and zips. They seem to be working out better. The only draw back is you need a few more tools and it takes a little longer to hang each sign. All worth it though if they stay up longer right?
Most of our signs are all in the proximity of the main town, bit there is this one particular spot that is 20 minutes away from our main area. That is a 40 minute round trip! On the ride back from this time, my partner and I actually had one of those “no da” thoughts, why were we spending so much time hanging this one sign? The way it always worked was we’d be just about finished with our main area and one of us would say, “We’ve got a few signs left (or some extra time), lets drive out to that spot and put them up.” So we would go…
If I can remember correctly, the first time we ever put a sign in this location we got a call from it but I don’t think we have gotten one since. You get one call from a sign, might as well keep it going is what we thought. Low and behold, we got another call from this sign this morning!! It said and I google quote it…
“I’d appreciate it if you would stop putting signs on ****** st. Sorry to take it down. Stop It! Or i’ll press charges”
Turns out there was a good reason we never got any more calls from that sign, because this dude was taking them down as soon as we put them up. I guess now we don’t have to come up with a game plan for making our time more productive in order to hang a sign in the spot anymore!
Would you stop hanging signs in that spot because one person had a problem with it? To be honest what kind of charges could this guy press?
