Look at it this way you could have been made the bad guy here!!!! Guy doing his JOB calls the police and says a guy is coming at me asking me to stop
bla bla bla - all he knows is you could be trying to take the sprayer and use it for something else? Make sense?
Common sense and a quick Google search on that fancy brain washing smart phone you took the video with could have saved you the trouble of
embarrassing yourself -
He did call the city services, several times by his account...and was given the run around and passed from pillar to post, never to receive an answer
to his genuine and rightful inquiry.
The blokes on the truck couldn't have acted more suspiciously is they tried in my opinion.
All they had to say to the bloke was, what's the problem pal, we're spraying for weed control, we do this once a months in this season etc. etc. but
Admittedly the bloke on the back of the truck did mumble something about roundup, but then immediately went into defensive mode. Whispering, ignoring
the guy asking a reasonable question, then claiming 'they are *not allowed* to discuss what they are spraying with the public'...not allowed?
If spraying weed killer / roundup or whatever is so innocuous and innocent, why would a public worker doing it, not be allowed to discuss it?
Is spraying weed killer a secret in the US these days?
