  • Dealing with Obama-ites

    Lately, I'm cringing every time I walk up to a house/business and see Obama bumper stickers. These Obama-ites seem to have no respect for my skills, time, or cost of doing business. Mayhaps they learned it from their master to think of plumbers as evil?

    I may have to enact an "Obama Tax" of 10% for each bumper sticker to cover the heartache these people are giving us.

    I don't run into specific demographic of people that do this that I can recall.

    All kinds of good & bad customers that believe & follow all kinds of things.

      Lets try not to generalize when we talk about a group of people. We all have different beliefs and dreams.

          My former boss and I charged an extra $10 for anybody with a john Kerry sticker, and $15 if they were wearing birkenstocks/sandals


          Re: obama-ites
          Why not charge them extra, it's all about taking from those that have, and giving to those that don't right?
          They must be all for it.

            lol...that's right. Don't forget the brand new Toyota Prius with the HUGE Obama sticker. Geeez, what a day I had....

            I had a huge bump in business after Joe the Plumber story broke. Every Republican in the county was supporting plumbers just to spite the Dems. Gotta love those Red dudes....

              People of all political parties with stopped up drains in the Greater New Orleans area are invited to call Hebert Drain Care for all of your drain cleaning and video inspection needs.

              While at your home you are welcome to believe that I practice the same religion and follow the same political philosophy as yourself.

              As long as the check is good that is.

              I know, it doesn't make sense.

                What's that Ray Bradbury sci-fi thing about the creature who would turn into whoever you thought it was? That's what I need to be---a total changeling.

                In the meantime, I'm initiating a "Bickford Fee" of 10.00 per bumper sticker.

                  Charging them more may help to offset the income taxes they are having tough time bringing themselves to pay.

                    I personally don't give a chit what a customer's beliefs are.

                    Rep, Dem, christian, muslim- don't care.

                    On a customer/ contractor level, other people's beliefs are not my concern.

                    I learned long ago that ingaging a customer about topics such as politics and religion is dangerous.

                    In the process of learning that, I've become somewhat numb to the tired old debates on these subjects.

                    I've still got my beliefs and standards- some I feel strongly about, some I don't. But I don't share them with too many people.

                    As Hebert said, as long as the check is good....

                            i am sorry. i cannot accept that. as long as my customer believes that he should buy all his stuff from me i am okay with it. if he thinks he should buy his tools from the other one, the evil doer, it is my DUTY to straighten him or her out. the customer may not realize that i am the source of all that is good and i must show him the path.

                            tolerance of other's beliefs is ok but up to a point...

                              I love New York! Except for the Yanks, of course...they can go jump off the Brooklyn Bridge.

                              I'm glad Obama is losing popularity and his minions are slithering back into the ooze. I feel much better adding the 20% Obama Tax knowing that he is less popular than Mark Teixeira.
