      Oh now if I was still in Florida, not only would I have not done that but I would have flipped them off and burned out the van in the driveway...Back here its a small community, if somebody tried to set us up, we as tradesmen pretty much now all each other and would have blacklisted them...Once a month all the service plumbers and some other tradesmen have a long lunch and we do talk about customers...we even had some of our good customers catch us at lunch and we tell them in a semi joking manner that we going over the customer list so they better be nice...it didn't take long for that to get around...Florida my friend is a state that is in a class all of its own!!!
      Poor Planning On Your Part Does Not Constitute An Emergency On My Part!!
      You can fire me...but you can't tell me what to do!
