  • just when i thought i heard it all

    just had a regular customer/ landlord call me tonight/ sunday. he has a building with a sewer stoppage backing up just a laundry and guest apartment.

    told him i can make 9am for monday. he hesitated and said that he has a friends wedding to go to that morning, but would rather meet me at the building than go to a wedding for a friend for the 3rd. time.

    i guess he knows who's more important

    plus who gets married on a monday

    hope they're not reading the forum

    phoebe it is

    I know there have been times I would prefer going to work over some social event,

        I often use "emergency job" to get out of going to certain social events. I must be either/or:
        1. Anti-social
        2. Pro-leisure (lazy)
        3. Discriminating of time use
        4. All of the above

          Man we must be BUNCH. I have also used a job to get out of a party. When it comes to a bunch of drunks bragging about them self's. Or the guy who thinks he is the life of the party spilling good beer on me. That old stopped up sewer looks mighty good to me, plus I get paid. I always tell my wife how bad I feel not being able to go, and trying not to change in to my work clothes too fast. Along with trying to figure out how to slow down not getting back too fast after the job is done, horns honking at me to go faster, mopeds mostly
