Yeah, I have a unique way about me!

One of my favorite stories goes back about 12 yrs ago when I had a display at the local home show. A man of foreign descent (lets say from the country where Dell has their call center) comes up and wanted to schedule an appointment for me to come to his house for an estimate.

The man was sorta pushy and had NO personaility.

So we schedule an appointment on the spot.

He says to me "please call me to remind me about our appointment".

My response "I was just about to tell you to call me and remind me"!!! LOL

The man got mad and said "you know what, you're unprofessional, cancel the appointment"!

LOL - Hilarious!

Last week I'm meeting with a new client. They had a large shed they want torn down while we're there working. The man said to me "what are you going to do with the debris, bury it?"

With a total straight face and serious tone, I responded "we will bury it only if you're not home when we do it".

Haha - see he and his wife have a sense of humor......I got a big laugh out of them.

No we won't bury the shed, it will be loaded into a roll off dumpster.

Oh, it gets even better! My 9.5 yr old son goes on almost every estimate / client meeting with me. He knows the business and he knows it well. Just wait about 9 to 10 more years and it'll be like a mini-me when he interacts with our clients!

Today we're looking at furniture. The sales lady tells me to make myself at home and be comfortable on the furniture. SO I respond "well at home I just have underwear on, and I start undoing my belt"!

My Equipment Brag List:

-1 CAT hat
-16 pairs of Hanes socks (the Heavy Duty model), many with holes.
-12 pairs of underwear, ranging from Joe Boxers to Jockey, many are in need of replacement. (no more photo requests please)
-hundreds of t-shirts. Some w/ grease stains, some torn & tattered.
-7 pairs of jeans, ranging from Levis to Polo to GAP. 1/2 of them have holes in 'em.
-1 belt
-1 pair of old worn out Nike shoes.
