I just love useless middlemen (persons) - like when you take your gear in for repair, give the counter jockey a detailed description of the fault and the steps you've taken so far, and they write on the job card "Won't start"

One of the agents I work with rang me the other week you need to go out straight away and remove all the palm fonds from the holiday house as there everywhere. So I went to the house which was a 25 minute drive in the pouring rain and there was 2 on the ground then they cried bloody murder when I charged them $60 for the effort

I got the same thing the other day a school i do rang me and said they have closed the car park as a tree had fallen and needs to be removed asap.

I turned up it was a small branch that took 5 secounds to pick up and put in the truck didnt even need to be cut with the chainsaw or loppers. Some people lol

I was an agent...so I speak the language.

 

What ever they say just translate to " whatever looks good in the photos in the tenancy agreement"

 

Thank me later.
