    Had a guy working for me a few years back.Played for the local rugby union team and was from nigeria.Working on a house in well lets just say a rich and religous area.A newish customer came out of his house and said "STUART WERE DID YOU FIND THAT N*****". I said Jeremy MATE lets go. Customer says "So hes a friend of yours too?"I gently :angry: explained what a nice customer he was and how much i respected him :realmad: :realmad: :realmad: .
    Then we packed up emptied the grass bags in front of his garage and left the job about a quarter done never to return.
    This guy was one of the best workers ive ever had by miles!
