some of u may remember the trouble i had buying a true cord a few weeks ago from a local wood dealer. a short recap i went to buy a true cord based on a sign the seller has on the side of the road stating cord of firewood $120 when i went to buy wood turned out to be a half a cord for that price because wood was split 3 times for stove size???? the guy flipped out on me and screamed this at me and told me that is a cord for stove wood. i have bought a true cord at this dealer 2 times last yr, anyway some folks on here told me this was fair and that i was a fool and a idiot and even threatened me with violence and that dept. of weights and measures would ''laugh in may face' and that the better business beau would not even care. also a few people on hear also stated that a cord is a vague measurement. well the state of nj does not think so and the dwm did definitely not laugh in may face and were very interested in what i had to say. they did 2 secret shoppers at the business with the second one ending with the owner being arrested after arguing and getting violent with a state worker.[the guy is a bit of a hot head} he has lost his status with the better business beau, and will be fined $4000. and could face jail time for losing his cool. i guess with all states in the red and needing every penny with the bad economy they will collect. think twice next time u sell a cord of wood.
