Most of you guys out there I am sure have some stories, good or bad about customers that are worth sharing.
I'll start it off with this guy I met yesterday. He left me a message yesterday, really funny. Some of the things he said were "hurry up and get over here and get me a quote or i'll give the job to someone else" he repeated himself about 3 times throughout the message too. Keep in mind that I had never talked to the guy before or told him I would be there at a certain time previous to the message.
We met up around 3. He showed me what he wanted, just some 4' chainlink along his back alley. He says he wants to keep people from slashin' the tires on his RV and fucking with his cats. "If anyone fucks with my cats and I catch them, I will hurt them" he said. Keep in mind that he has lived there since 2001 and none of this has happened yet.
Then he started telling me his life story. He told me when he was my age he wanted to be a gynecologist. "Doctor and medical shit runs in my family" He said. "My daughter is an RN but she is trouble" "Started slutting around when she was 13" "But I can't blame her, I let the monster out of the closet when I was 11 and never put it back" I was trying so hard not to start laughing at this guy. He then told me that his oldest son is a mechanical engineer and his other son didn't go to college. "He'll end up like me, get shipped off to Vietnam if he don't get and education" "But boy I tell you the drugs over there were cheap and they were the best" "The whores were great too but some of them would try to cut your dick off with razor blades" "My brother strangled one to death"
Fuck guy, thanks for the life story. I really hope I get this job so I can come back with a tape recorder and have some conversations with this guy.
