Its been a while since I posted, that's cause I been busier than a brickie on the US - Mexican border.
But today was my worst, had an argument with my wife last night and then next day.
1: My most VIP customer, manicured lawns, hedges just beautiful all my work of course!. Then it was time to bring out the Roundup. Pumping that 10 litre bottle nice and tight to last me along the grass edge. What happens next, the hose bursts off the bottom of the bottle spraying a thick stream of Round Up all over the lawn right in front of the pool area. 10 litres of Round up all over my legs and their most luscious green lawn. No customer home, so I put that sprinkler on and left it there for over an hour. Who knows what it will look like when I go back. Maybe I shouldn't go back?
2: Next job, pressure wash pool cover. Pool cover gets picked up by the wind and blows onto the hot motor of pressure cleaner melting a 10cm hole right in the middle of the pool cover.
3: Next job, finish off paint job, accidentally let dog out of house and spend 1 hour driving with non stop talkative kid to find the little pooch. He was hiding next door all the time.
Stressed from that little episode I then painted the internal doors to wardrobe belonging to pooch kid. Not thinking I closed the wet paint doors of the wardrobe and left paint on all the customers latest designer clothes.Black jackets with white paint strips.
Turning them around to face the other way seemed a little obvious, so while the customer was out I tried some hand washing. Even CRC on the paint stains didn't work.
They looked dusty, not worn often, So now all facing the other way with wet sleeves. Could be months before they realise?
Maybe I should just do the dishes after all. My wife does the cooking, my luck may change then?
