Because it's your property

 Yeah, but just dumping it in the middle of the lawn?  That's unprofessional.  How about asking, "where do you want me to put the old dish?"

I thought Dish had a model with a 2" mast.

Nope, even their "newer" dishes uses the same 1 5/8 mast with monopoles

Here’s to the crazy ones.
The misfits. The rebels.
The the troublemakers.
The round pegs in the square holes.

The ones who see things different.
They’re not fond of rules, and they have no respect for the status quo.

I assumed he meant it was on an old pole mount in the middle of his yard.  If that is the case, then I don't really see a problem with the installer leaving it there.  Like it has said before, that is not part of their job.  If they were to get injured, or accidentally damage your property or hurt someone else when removing it they would likely end up in trouble and possibly lose their job.


Now if the installer actually removed the dish from a roof, or something like that and just threw it in a pile in the middle of the yard, yeah that is somewhat annoying.  But again, the installer did something that was not part of his job so you really shouldn't be too upset about it, after all he didn't need to remove it at all, he could have left it for the owner to remove like he is supposed to.


To me that's like getting mad at a waiter for bringing you a napkin so you can wipe something off your face, rather than the waiter actually wiping it off for you .

Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver."
