Douchetastic Tree Removal Service Owner Throws Hissy Fit Over Cancelled Service Appointment, Has No Regrets

Plainville, MA is a fun place. Nestled between Foxborough, Wrentham, Mansfield, and North Attleboro, it’s a small town with an above average median income, a permanent inferiority complex, and one famous resident.


Oh, and a bootleg “casino.” It’s no wonder why everyone in town hates each other.

I came across this post in a Plainville community page.

“This post is not for bashing but to help people make informed decisions. If not allowed, please delete.

So they say when you have good service you tell 5 friends and when you have bad service you tell everyone … well I’m telling everyone. I wasn’t going to, I thought it was just my sleep adled brain making it seem worse than it was … then I saw my windshield littered, when my trash can is a few feet away. Someone didn’t miss …

I got a quote from Destito Tree Service for cutting down some trees. Set for an arbitrary date a month out. They were highly recommended by my bestie mom friend and I value her opinion, so I decided to use them. The gentleman was a bit condescending (you know the “silly female, with a pat on the head”) but maybe that was just me. They weren’t the cheapest or the most expensive. Smack dab in the middle.

I called at the end of July to cancel (July 31st at 10:04pm). I needed a firm date. And anyone who’s been to my yard knows I need a lot more work done than just trees. I had found a company that night, that does EVERYTHING I needed.

Fast forward to today, Destito Tree Service arrives in the morning and woke me up. I told them I had cancelled a while back and elected a different company. While the guy was 🔥 👀 he was a bit rude, but that could have been just my interpretation since I just woke up.

Are you seeing all the excuses I gave them? Well I go take my toddler to camp and see this mess on my car. WTF?!! Maybe customer service doesn’t matter to anyone else here, but it does to me. I started my working career in fast food and learned humility. That lesson apparently was lost on some folks, or they were privileged enough to not need it 🤷🏽‍♀️. Use them or not at your discretion, I just thought I should share my experience and save some people the hassle. I had a few other tree-only companies that gave quotes and were really personable and sincere, that I would recommend. Destito Tree Service is not one of them.

Thanks for reading.”

Bad business reviews are not uncommon on community pages like this one. They usually have a few inconsistencies, hard to believe statements (who calls a local business to cancel a service at 10:04 PM?), and exaggerated accounts of the interaction. Even when there are pictures:

…I tend to be skeptical with these posts, as I was with this one. That is until the owner of the company showed up in the comments.



Entitled prick status confirmed. Business must be booming when you can find the time to log on and shit over everybody who made a comment about your big baby fit over a cancelled service appointment.

Nick Destito is 26 years old and grew up in Plainville. Despite looking like the broiest bro that ever did bro…

…owning a business at that age is a pretty good start to life. Destito Tree Service is highly rated on Google, Angie’s List, and Home Advisor, so this seems like a genuine aberration.

The only thing that could hurt this business is if the owner started acting like a 26 year old shithead over a bad review.

Oops! Be more of a raging douche canoe – you can’t. This is man’s work, son. Someone take this little boy home and get him a juice box and fruit rollup, he needs a nap.

Douchebag Destito sure is an internet tough guy, huh? Or….was. Because, at one point during this festive douche parade, a Turtle Rider decided tag us:

And 17 minutes later, Douchetastic Destito, who had zero fucks to give about anyone’s opinion up until that point, suddenly had a change of heart and posted an apology, tail firmly tucked between his legs.

Either someone talked some sense into him or he realized the hornets nest he had stirred up and was trying some damage control.

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

    Sorry to see this, I have known about this business and have Done business for years with Nick sr. Nothing but the best. I pray his kid doesn’t throw away what his dad has built. It’s an expensive game with trucks and labor. All I know is that this company treated right over the yea.

      I agree with Tommy, I have known Nicky Jr since he was a boy in Norwood mass , 50 plus years. And he is honest man. And he knows his business, when his trucks and men show up for work, oh boy just let them do there thing. He has cleaned out many a property for me. God bless you Nick and thank you guys for the hard work. I can’t believe I seen this, just looking for you guys to do some more tree work.

    Anyone with a pulse can buy a truck and some chainsaws and call himself a “Tree Service” even if he can’t tell the difference between a Pine and a Maple. Just pray to God you made sure they have active Liability and Workers Comp insurance before letting them set foot on your property.

    Interesting. Did she really cancel the appointment, or did she just claim to have cancelled it so she wouldn’t look like a douche? If she didn’t, and caused a business to block out their time for her, incur labor and overhead costs because she changed her mind, that’s a breach of contract, and quite possibly theft of services.

    But why would you let facts get in the way of trashing someone?

    When she talks about the whole ‘he talked down to me because I’m a woman’ bullshit I knew right away SHE is the problem. And how can you rate him if he didn’t do any work for you? Next time don’t forget to cancel (10 o’clock yeah right) and you won’t piss off someone who actually works for a living. Snatch.

      Yup. You nailed it.

      I know exactly what happened. Bimbo called several tree guys to get a quote. Got a quote from this guy and set up an appointment to have him come in a few days or weeks or whenever he had time available when he has a slot available (trust me, this time of year, tree dudes are swamped with work.) Another guy shows up after him and gives her a lower price and can do the work immediately, so she says “go ahead” so she doesn’t have to wait for some future date, and then forgets to call guy #1 to cancel.

      Who the fuck calls a company at 10pm to cancel an appointment, when nobody will be there to answer the phone?

      Guy is understandably pissed off, because he scheduled time for his crew and now due to this bimbo they’re standing around with their thumbs up their asses with nothing to do, not making any coin. Bimbo wasted his time and his money, plain and simple.

    I don’t get the endgame with blogs like this, it seems like you wanna shame the guy but then when he realizes he made a mistake and admits it, you still wanna burn him…? Blogs like this IMO, don’t really support the whole “we are a deterrent to ratchet behavior” that uncle seems to emphasize, makes you guys looks like assholes if anything. Also, what he did really wasn’t that bad, immature yes, but not really worthy of the repercussions he’ll most likely receive. Maybe that’s why some doubt the good your blog can provide. I love the site, but maybe measure twice, cut once.

        How about a blog, that does good for the public, make better decisions with who they pick battles with? That way they don’t earn the negative rep a lot of people perceive them to have. I am giving constructive criticism, not hating or insulting. I think Turtle Driver has written some quality blogs, and I will go as far as saying all the bloggers have their share of blogs where I have the question “what is their purpose for this?”. This blog to me, just doesn’t warrant the guy to receive “public shame”. He sounds like he had a bad day and was an asshole, aren’t we all guilty of that at one time or another? I am not defending the guy, he clearly seems like he bears some wrong, but this story is not only boring, but there is just nothing really here that makes me think this guy deserves the shame and trolling he’s gonna receive. Also, it is a ‘he said she said story’, so who even knows what really happened, isn’t Turtleboy all about the truth?

        TB is a powerful platform locally, go after the big guys and real degenerates that’s all I am saying. Blogs like this kinda support people who think you guys are “hate speech”. I don’t agree with that sentiment, but it’s hard to read this blog and think TB had enough evidence or material to bury this guy. Eliminate my whole “what’s your endgame” argument, and I still would say this blog is boring, plain and simple.

          On the contrary, I just find your writing miserable. You’re a whiny bitch. Go save a whale. Who the fuck are you to decide if a story is TBS worthy?

          “Blogs like this kinda support people who think you guys are “hate speech”.”

          How so? That is the most ridiculous claim I’ve ever read. It’s you that thinks it’s “hate speech”. How about not acting like an ass-hat and blowing up social media when you don’t get your way?

            Whiny bitch? Oh so if I do not blindly ride the blog’s dick and think everything they do is great I am whining? Excuse me for offering a different opinion, which is what Uncle wants, not echo chambers like you. Also, you are conveniently omitting me saying things like Turtle Driver has written quality blogs, that I disagree with the sentiment that the blogs are “hate speech” (I do not believe hate speech is a thing, I am FOR free speech) and you characterize me as someone that is deeming what TB should post. I’m NOT. Read other comments on this blog, my negative reaction does not stand alone. Sorry some of us like TB for the investigative stuff and informative stuff and are a bit critical of blogs like this. The ratchet stuff can be fun or amusing, but it earns them that negative rep, that’s a fact even though it is an unfairly placed rep of them.

            This is a weak blog. You may think it’s good, that is fine you are entitled to your opinion. You think I am some SJW or liberal cuck (go save a whale lmao good one), when I am far from that, but you seem too thick headed to have a meaningful thought or opinion. You seem angry and miserable with life who blames ‘libtards’ for everything bad, or maybe you just are a troll. I think it is a bit of both though! It is possible to be a fan and supporter of something and also disagree once in awhile!

        • Finn
          August 21, 2019 at 11:32 am


          Show me where I used the word “libtard”. You can’t because I didn’t. That’s how I substantiate your stupidity. Your insipid observations and assumptions are boring and (again) you come off like a whiny bitch.

          I give you an A+ in arguing via logical fallacies. I give you an C- in being a reasonable human being. If I don’t like a blog entry, I simply move along and go to the next. If you disagree with a blog and want to give your opinion – be prepared for opposing views. Take your ball and go home.

          Get Fucked,

            “You seem angry and miserable with life who blames ‘libtards’ for everything bad, or maybe you just are a troll.” That is my OPINION of you, not trying to say you EVER said ‘libtard’, but I have that OPINION of you because you are so quick to assume I am left wing e.g. “go save a whale” and thinking I was calling this specific blog hate speech when I was simply stating opponents of TB use blogs like this to unfairly characterize TB of promoting hate speech.

            I love TB and think they provide a lot of great things, but they are not perfect and have an occasional bad blog. Comments are for witty/funny comments and criticism, who the hell wants to see comments stroking the blog’s ego about how awesome this blog or that blog is? HENCE why Uncle always asks people to debate or challenge him on his videos if you disagree. He seems to encourage people to chime in when they disagree and he wants to hear the other side. I am not crying or whining, maybe it’s cause you cannot hear my tone.

            I tried to give credit where credit is do by providing some positive feedback in my comments to show I am not being a whiny bitch and just complaining. You overlook those aspects and want to paint me like an SJW just complaining. I don’t care though, it doesn’t hurt my feelings. I will continue to support the blog and voice my opinion. You can accuse me of being whiny and tell me to leave or go make my own blog, but like I said you are too thick headed to see my actual point that this SPECIFIC blog sucked and IN MY OPINION hurts their overall brand/purpose. Read the comments, I’m not alone thinking this blog sucked, you won’t acknowledge that though. You’ll twist my words and claim I am using logical fallacies.

    Dude is 26, business is booming. He probably struck out on this one and it cost him some money. Understandably he was pissed off. However, all you have is your reputation, somebody burns you and you shut up and focus on the next job. You’ll get slow someday and your name is the only thing that will carry you through a recession. Lesson learned guy, stay off Facebook.

    As a business owner myself, I completely understand this guys frustration. Guaranteed, her story is bullshit and since he didn’t take a deposit the woman decided to go with a “race to the bottom” prices hack company. He probably should have kept I professional for the sake of his business, but when licensed, insured companies get out bid by illegal unlicensed uninsured hacks, it can be incredibly frustrating. Lame article turtleboy.

    August 20, 2019 at 3:29 pm

    The only issue I’ve ever had with owner/operator tree services is the time.
    One thing I notice, is no one calls the tree guy when needed. But, a truck shows up in the neighborhood and the neighbors are asking the tree service “How much?” The last time I had work done, 3 people stopped and talked to the tree guy.

    The truck is already in the neighbor hood and the they do the neighbors trees. So, if you had your work done in the morning and they are supposed to be somewhere else in the afternoon, they blow off the somewhere else until tomorrow at the earliest. Can’t say I blame them even if it’s not right. The truck doesn’t run on unicorn farts and they save at the very least gas or diesel money.

    Dude is at least trying. Calls at 10 PM are shrieking entitlement and as a rule are to be IGNORED. This a ball busting type of business to run, and takes a high investment in expensive machines, insurance premiums, and paying ex cons in cash hoping they actually show up to do the work. Takes a lot of balls to do this. And not saying people that do this can not be huge douchebags either.

      August 21, 2019 at 10:08 am

      Bet that call would not have been ignored if she were trying to make another appointment. She left a message. He didn’t call to confirm. Post this article went back to her home to threaten her and her electrician. I wouldn’t hire him

      • deflateddoritodinks
        August 21, 2019 at 11:20 am

        I’m wondering if the call were intentionally placed so late probably only 10 hours before the dude was going to show up. People are scumbags. I don’t own a tree business, but people are such assholes lately (dunno why they are much worse this year than ever) I won’t even set up a meeting with a potential customer unless he has a deposit in hand. Not worth chasing shit with so many idiots around.
