I did an inspection yesterday for an older couple. The gentleman latched on to me from the beginning, was talking to me about random stuff, and basically very distracting. I did my best to be nice to him, and I was. It took way longer than it should have, but that’s ok.
The funny part was, about halfway through, the old man thought he and I were doing the inspection together. Like he was my employee rather than my client. He was carrying my tool bag around, asking me what I thought about this or that problem with the house, handing me tools, holding my flashlight for me, etc.
The best part for me was, his wife asked about something in a room that we had not visited yet and he yells across the house at her, “WE haven’t got to that part yet, Linda. WE’LL look at it in a minute.”
If it wasn’t so funny, I probably would have been annoyed by him and asked him to watch from a distance.
Don’t come off with a snide remark with me…OK!
You don’t know me at all, So! refrain from you BS…
I didn’t think it was a bit funny at all.
We don’t need to read that…Tell it to you wife and kids they may enjoy it better.
Ya gotta remember that Roy relates to the old buzzard, as he’s older than dirt also. You’ll get used to his crotchety ways sooner or later, and learn how to just ingore the doofus’ antics. His senility should be setting in soon, then no more worries.
So how do you put someone on ignore? That would be great. This isn’t the first time that the bitter old dude has been rude to me. Perhaps he needs to get laid?? It really is sad though that some people don’t have anything better to do than sit around hitting refresh on their computer, waiting for new comments to come up on the forum, so they can spread their disdain and depression. I really do hope it gets better for you Roy, and I hope that I never end up as a depressed old sour puss.
