Ward Kleaver, 45, of Bridgeport was awakened last night by a loud noise in his living room.
The tree was purchased on Thursday from a company called TreesRUs, who claims all sales are final. TreesRUs lost its BBB rating in 2002, but continued to operate out of a semi-truck, moving from state to state. Last year they lost a battle in court to sell their SuprApple tree which they claim produces watermelon sized apples. This year they came back with the new super hybrid Christmas tree that has been grown with their "secret" chemicals.
Kleaver said he was shopping for a regular Christmas tree, but the sales lady kept after him to "get a big one" which he says confused him.
Suzy Whozzie sold the
tree to Kleaver.
The City Attorney has promised to file charges against TreesRUs after the holidays. In the mean time the Kleaver family will spend Christmas at home as usual, only this year with an unusual Christmas tree.
