As I was first lowering my tailgate comes along this shiny outfit with the usual collection of equipment on the back, not that I was paying attention until one of them yelled 'Heya boy' in a real derogatory tone of voice... I would say it was a racist remark, but that might not come off right seeing how I'm white... Still, it was said like that. Of course I took down their registration, figuring if they had no respect of me as a person, if equipment turned up missing, at least I'd know where to start looking. It was two of them, a show they made of unloading the ZEE, I am thinking these two... By this time I had the 48" Wb going full speed ahead, got done with that and was through weedeating while the blower started as usual and that was woosh-woosh, then came leaving the bill and the round-up application... I'd say I was just about done while they were cooling off, having a drink. By which time I had started the truck, and was turning around in the same cul-de-sac they were in, of course they waved like all smiles on their face while I just drove on, not acknowledging their presence at all, except to stop and look in the rearview so I could write down their company name and phone number off the neat signs on their truck... Who would've thought, there IS a good thing about signs! Now for those of you who wonder why I never wave back, there's one reason why. So if someone starts thinking of or acting like a jerk that's fine but don't get all nice later, you won't get the time of day out of me, after all, why start being nice to me now? I am still half tempted to leave a short letter with their customer about their Lco's behaviour towards other companies, that is not to say I may not turn them into the county's licensing division (contractors and chem applicators, not to mention zoning) to make sure they're all squared away... Seeing how they're not in either phonebook, that is. I was further tempted to offer to cut their grass for $5 less, but that I won't do, thou tempt me it did. So to anyone getting a little too excited, watch what you say and how you act towards fellow workers. If I got nothing nice to say, I say nothing. Treat someone like me with contempt and they better watch their back.
