So much hostility. Are y'all OK? What is really going on around here lately?

Update...

I didn't play the video (or mention it) for the boss man...and I didn't mention the two guys.

The owner came over and we went through the work his guys had done (which looked, overall, really great) and I directed his attention to the facing stones on the front of the step up to the porch...(where the guys were working during the video). I checked them this afternoon and noticed some of the facing was loose and were a bit crooked...he checked them and agreed they were and said he'd take care of it.

As angry as I was this morning...the more I thought about it...the more I realized I didn't want these two guys to lose their job because of my hurt feelz and anger over something stupid they said...which except for a fluke...I never would've normally even heard.

The more people have cameras all over their place, the more feelz will get hurt.

The answer to your question is LITERALLY 3 posts above. So lazy.

Yea, I had already realized I somehow missed that post. But thanks for the making one of your rare 8 replies a year to point it out.

Glad you got it worked out to your satisfaction, TAT.

That said, I would have also made mention to the contractor something along the lines of, "Yeah, but what really worries me is that your workers were joking about how bad a job they were doing in Spanish. I happen to have someone who speaks fluent Spanish. I have it on tape if you wanna see it."

I wouldn't have done it for spite, but the deal is that these racists will go on and do the same thing to the next customer... and the next... until the contractor finds out about it. Who knows? That next customer could be an old lady who slips on a loose paver, breaks a hip, and the contractor is now looking at a nice hefty lawsuit, medical bills, pain and suffering, and a bad reputation... not to mention the poor lady who is in pain from a broken hip.

If I hire someone to work for me, I demand respect. Period. If they cannot provide it, they will leave my property. Once the job is done and I have accepted it, they can go bad-mouth me all they want, but when they are on my property doing work for me, taking my money, they will be professional or they will be gone. I would have ordered them off my property... immediately... as soon as I found out what they were saying and they would not be coming back.

I have a problem with someone working for me and speaking in any foreign language anyway. They are working for me and I want to know what they are saying. I don't think that's unreasonable... if someone else does, so be it. They can speak all the Spanish they want at home and I won't care a bit, but on my job they will speak English or not speak.
