That's almost as bad as holding up a sign will work for food!

They are the same in my eye. Must of been the guys first day or so on the sign thing by day three he will have the sign tapped to all sides of the van while he sits playing his PSP or chatting on PT from the laptop. By day four he will just park the van there and with the sign and a phone number.

All jokes aside, I have seen a lettered van or two sitting at lowe's for what seemed like advertisement. One parked way out from the regular slots kind of by itself day in day out for some kind of business. The other was a plumbing business.
The first one was "For Sale".

Those are vehicles of employees who moonlight as contractors.

The first van stayed in the lot for 24 hrs a day. It eventually had a for sale sign on it. I called about it, but it was too rough. I can't remember the type of business connected to it. It was there a long time.

The second van was owned by an hvac company owned by a boy I grew up with. Not sure how long it was there, not nearly as long as the other one. I never asked him about it.

Aaron, loved that video. Pretty neat he can do that. However, how the hell am I supposed to read the sign when he is spinning it over his head?

Default Effective?

My thoughts are "Effective at letting your competition and prospects know that you are a desperate SOB and cant be trusted around the china or silver"
