I love meeting new people. Whenever my wife and I go out for dinner, we eat at the bar. Last night sat next to 2 older women. One was a blast. They left and another couple sat down. Guy caught me looking at his watch and we ended up talking watches for half an hour. Then for some reason watches moved to guns as he collected as well. Always fun meeting new people.

I just fielded a phone call from an irate customer who was upset because we arrived to deliver his fridge during our state time window.

The customer told me that he got a call this morning at ten to nine telling him that our team would be there between 10 AM and Noon. So what does our hero do? Settle in to wait? Watch soap operas? Noooooo. He goes to church from 9 to 11. When the delivery guys show up at 10:30 they knock on the door, call his phone, and then call me. I try calling and his cell phone doesn't have voice mail set up.

So now the guy calls and is very upset because we didn't tell him that he was going to be the first stop. So? They gave you a two hour window, why didn't you stick around. "I wanted to go to church from 9 to 11."

I moved his delivery to tomorrow and told him that delivery would call in the morning. He said, "Well, I have to go to church tomorrow." I hung up on him.

The thing is that if when told that delivery was going to be between 10 and noon, he had said, "Hey, I'm supposed to go to church from 9 to 11," they would have worked with him

He was lucky - most times when I order something for delivery they quote sometime within an 8-hour time slot and I have to be prepared to stay in all day!

You must be old. Young people are too into their phones to talk to strangers.

I tell my daughter how I made friends riding the bus in college and even got some dates. She thinks that it is really strange that strangers would speak to each other.

Some of my best friends were strangers until we talked.

You never know. That's part of the fun.

I was outside of my storage facility a while back, waiting for them to fix the gate so we could get in. An old Italian guy was waiting there with me, and we got to talking about what we kept in our lockers, etc.

He makes these mosaic-like things out of pieces of colored glass/translucent stone, epoxied to a large sheet of glass. Kind of like stained glass windows. He showed me some pictures of his work installed in hotels, churches, etc. Stunning works of art.

I asked him what the largest one he ever did was and he showed me a pic, with he and the guy who'd commissioned it, shaking hands next to it. It was Elon Musk.

You and me both! You can't have a discussion with someone who is unwilling to listen.

I don't hate anyone but I do sometimes cast stink eye at people who talk about how smart they are and then cause interesting threads to be vaporized because they're too selfish or oblivious to follow the rules. It's just rude.

Yep, hate people. Thirty four years in LE showed me what people are capable of. All walks of life, all situations, every type of people.

Latest stupid customer trick. My coworker sold a fridge to a customer who needed the doors reversed. We charge $25 to reverse the door. Nope, this guy says that he can do that himself. That's OK, it's not really that hard of a task.

We get a phone call after the fridge is delivered. The customer tells my boss that he's stripped a screw and wants us out there RIGHT NOW for fix it. Two problems sir, our repair tech has gone home for the day and that will be a service call. He then starts demanding payment for the food that is spoiling because he can't put into his fridge.

Somehow all of his woes are our fault.

Semi-official, but yes.
