Default Story time...

My maine man Jeff and I were out on my remodel job today. He was on top of a 36' ladder and I was cutting brick molding up and throwing it to him. A charter dude walks up and ask if the homeowners were around. Obviously the house isn't habitable, but whatever. I tell him no, and he starts small talking about how hot it is and ****. This goes on for about 3 minutes and my man Jeff turns and spits over his shoulder (2 cans of skoal a day dude right here) and it lands on my boots. He is immediately like "sorry bout that bro" and I'm like "I don't give a ****" and we're about to go on about our day. Then the Charter guy says, "man, you're a better man than me, I'd whoop somebody's ***, if they spit on me." Jeff doesn't miss a beat and instantly turns around and spits on the dude and covers his khakis right above the knees with tobacco juice. Then Jeff says "do I need to come down off this ladder, or are you gonna go bullshit with someone else while they're trying to get work done?" Charter dude turns red in the face and says "you guys are a bunch of ********" and gets back in his fan. Jeff says "War Eagle!" as he walks away. Short story, but it made my Friday so much better. For reference, Jeff is a 55 year old Jerry Reed look a like that just don't give a damn. I only hire the best.

I pay him exactly the same as I pay myself on remodels jobs. Always hire people that know more than you.

Cool story that your boy Jeff spit on a dude trying to do his job and now has to finish the day trying to sell in soiled looking pants.

He wasn't trying to do his job. He was trying to kill time on the clock and then also act like a badass. If he was doing his job, he would have turned around and got back in his van when I told them no one lived there. He was a unsolicited salesman. Not a tech.

Especially when you have tools and materials in your hands trying to do something.

Lol. Na, you could look at the dude and tell he wasn't made for something like that. He didn't look too hmmm "agile." My wife says I'm an *******, but I use the term "doughboy". We're were both polite as hell to him and then he said that ****. Folks gotta learn eventually I suppose.
