    So I have been really busy painting a plaza. A company owns 150 of these "plazas" all over the u.s.

    I get to the front where a pick and save grocery store is. Normally I cone off areas, use caution tape etc. to make sure no one drives thru, or gets oversprayed etc.


    So this owner comes out(mind you he is renting the space from the company I am contracted thru), walks up to me.


    Now this guy is a little not really little, but littler than me, bald and definately an a******. He walks up to me and starts screaming at the top of his lungs, "What the hell am I supposed to do with this tape and cones?"I tell him what I just wrote above. He says, "who was the f'n idiot who left the cones here last nite?"

    I say, I AM THE F'N IDIOT, YOU WANNA PAY THE DEDUCTIBLE FOR OVERSPRAYED CARS?"

    He says , (now he is trying to control me thru violence and fear)I am trying to run a business here. I say so am I.

    Now this is all being yelled. HE walks away, and when he is about 35 yds. away screams , "WHY DON'T YOU SMELL SOME MORE OF THOSE F'N PAINT FUMES!"

    I was just about to end this guy, but I am a pro, and an owner of a reputable business. My ol man shows up, I tell him the story, and he tells the cart getter. Warns him of his bosses impending doom if he gets in my job site anymore.

    I later inquire thru many of my friends, and find out this guy is a known prick.

    This coming monday the whole lot is getting seal coated and striped, I want to pay adimission to see this ass squirm.

    And by the way, do not shop at Delevan Wi pick and save!

    Just laugh and watch him freak out. We are building a concrete roadway to some super expensive properties and one of the home owners got very irate that he would have to wait 5 minutes for us to get the equipment out of his way. So, instead of waiting he drove around the truck and concrete pump, right into 8" of wet concrete and rebar. Freaking out, he decided to drive out of the concrete, over the steel formwork and drug the chassis of his brand new Range Rover 50' down steel forms with cold rolled pins sticking out every 5'. We could do nothing but laugh, and he could do nothing except drive away.

    As I said this guy rents the space from the corporation who owns these and this plaza.

    I also found out from his help he is a known prick. He goes to all the du and pheasants forever stuff and drops cash like his in vegas.


    I go to these too.
    I will get revenge:cool:

    Be glad you aren't working for Depot. If you were, the HD Manager would have you out there kissing ass and painting in the middle of the night to keep the customer satisfied. Even though the prick isn't really your customer, your Home Depot uniforms and truck signs would force you to kiss everyone's ass regardless. Freedom is nice, isn't it? ;)

    Where to start....

    Being a plumber no-one is happy to see you, unless there house is flooded in who knows what I suppose, lol. I run into my fair share of pricks but what bugs me the most is the "watchers". You know the people that just stand there and watch every single thing you do while your trying to work. Man, I hate that. You can't scratch your nuts, swear at the dodgy plumbing someone else did or do it how you want to because they want it done just a little bit different but it's going to end up being twice as painful to finish the job. And if you f**k something up along the way or get a leak you look like a complete incompetent even when its easily fixed.

    I mean with someone watching you all the time you can't even get your "Plumber's crack" out which is half the fun of the job! Yesterday I had a bloke watch me dig a trench for a stormwater drain for two hours - just sat there and watched me. I mean, Christ get a life. Poor bloke must lead a pretty dull existence if he had nothing better to do and that was the highlight of his day! Mind you, I had to laugh though when I put the crow-bar through a power conduit and before I knew what was happening he reached in and put his hand onto the broken wires and gave himself a shock! What a dumbass!

    And the ones that ask question after inane question. Sometimes I feel like screaming at them, "just shut the f**k up. If you can't grasp how water flows through a pipe then you won't understand no matter how many times I explain it!"

    And then there are the ones that jump on you as soon as you get to the front door and lay down the law about everything as though your going to rip them off or do a dodgy job. Jeez, I hate being made to feel as though I'm some sort of con-man.

    Wow, I kinda got carried away! I think I need a holiday!

    :) Lup
