We were called out to a woman's house where she needed significant work done.
It was a gated community, the homes were all in excess of $2,000,000 each.
While we were busy unloading equipment, I got a phone call and stepped outside to speak. In my absence, the woman apparently began really talking down to my people, who I KNOW are some of the most polite, easiest going folks you could ever find.
There is a protocol in our business in order to not spread the contamination and to avoid having to repeat the same things over and again.
The woman told my people what they would do first, and when they tried to explain, she got her ass up on her shoulders and really started laying into them.
I saw my one female come out of the house, and it clear on her face that something was wrong.
After being illuminated, I walked back in and told everyone to start loading the truck. Get everything back on the truck.
The richbitch asked what we were doing, and I explained that we were leaving.
She jumped on me, telling me that we weren't going anywhere, that she was paying us good money, and that we were going to stay and do the job.
I told her, "Lady, you don't have enough money, your freinds don't have enough money, nor could all of you together borrow enough money to work one single minute for you."
"WELL! I've NEVER been talked to that way."
"Yeah, and that's your damn problem."
It's sometimes good to own the company. I will not tolerate anyone mistreating or talking down to my employees, who are solid gold of themselves.
Usually very wealthy.
Usually damned Yankees.
And I didn't know "damned" and "Yankees" were two separate words until high school.
