    Interesting!…Kirby Vacuum Co. does the very same thing. I never knew this was against the law – especially when they had me doing it too! Hmmm! No wonder their office locations change so much. Thinking they need to be on the move …always!

    If he cheats and make shortcuts in his tiny, little office operations, wonder what the hel* goes on when working on a client’s AC system!!

    He should be investigated! See if he’s connected with those cold-callers being reported to for unsolicited calls and DNC violation.
