Now, according to this long winded notice-I CAN distribute this because I AM the intended recipient. And, as such I want to tell the world that if you buy a high priced Mantis Electric Mower from Amazon.com in March, you cannot return it past April. Mantis does not honor their famous "try it risk free" for anything they did not sell. Of course they never mention this in their television or print ads.
So I am stuck with a really expensive, really awkward pair of electric shears-a weed whacker would cut the lawn better, and my lawn is tiny. The only green thing about this is the money Mantis gets, because I will have to go buy another lawn mower that will do the job.
I put the number to the customer service department up and invite anyone reading this to call Mantis and tell them to Kiss My Ass (or your ass if you'd rather). I really don't care whose ass they kiss as long as they pucker up well and often.
I'm going to send a link to the Mantis Customer service department as well, they may wish to kiss their own asses.
