I did a suicide where the guy sat in a chair and put a gun in his mouth and blew his brains all over the popcorn ceiling. Human brains look like chicken fat.

I did a murder scene. the police removed the carpet for evidence, but there were blood splatters on the wall and a bloody handprint that slid down the wall as the person collapsed.

I did a house where there was trash piled to the ceiling in every bedroom, broken windows and glass shards everywhere. The utilities had been off for months and they were using 5 gallon buckets as toilets....but not emptying them, roaches everywhere. Then in the middle of the kitchen floor was a tub of ready-made icing with a small child's finger impressions in it where the child had sat on that floor, in that house and eaten icing as they were leaving. That one made me cry.

Dead pets left locked and abandoned in houses with no, or not enough food and water and no way to escape. I found a small kitten stuck to a glue rat trap, 1/3 of her skin was "melted" away, she was in agony. The vet couldn't save her.

The conditions of the houses or the carpets were not nearly as disturbing as the human condition.

That depends on who wins the internal, eternal power struggle...lol. Actually we have let our customers guide the direction and the focus of the business and that has served us well. we will be serving the needs of our customers, whatever path that may take us down.

Mikey P said:

We will have Scott W's job at BP...actually that is a scenario we have never let ourselves go down.

Mike P., Jim P., Larry C., Chavez........and Marty.

Having a penchant for "fixer-upper" husbands.

Plastic, with a lifetime supply of batteries. Really, you are asking ME!?!? I guess they would be honest, intelligent, trustworthy, empathetic, caring, hard-working, affectionate a dynamo in bed and hornier than a 3-peckered dog.

Mikey P said:

Michael Schoeny could just sign his truck over to me. It don't get much better than that.

Mikey P said:
~Why don't you like Shawn York?
Shawn's okay, I just get the impression he sees women as inflatable sex toys. He has a "salesman" personality that turns me off at times.

Mikey P said:

Wow, so many places I'd love to see....India, Australia, the Polynesian Islands, Egypt, Africa, Switzerland...but I guess I would have to say Alaska.

Take care,
Lisa

Hey Lisa,

If you ran a cc biz today and had 5-10 techs working for you how much would you like them to make per year and how many hours per week would you work them on average? Realistic #'s of course.

What percentage of your techs would be female?

I've never had a desire to run a multi-truck business. I much preferred the Mikey P. owner/op model. Being a very poor manager / disciplinarian, I had no desire for technicians beyond a helper.

I think the ideal team is a man/woman team. It gets the best feedback from the homeowners. In the commercial setting male crews are better accepted.

Take care,
Lisa

So, on that desert island.


Speedos or trunks for the men and what will you have on?


please god, let there be a Mu Mu tree on that island for Chavez's sake...
IDGAS what the men wear. That's a guy thing....you don't hear women calling up men asking "Hey baby, what are you wearing?"

If you are all lucky I'd be wearing a muu-muu with Chavez.

Take care,
Lisa

I'm going to "officially" end this now. But if anyone has any more questions later, I'd be glad to answer.

It's been fun....but that seat didn't get even close to hot.

Were you bein' easy on me 'cause I'm a girl? I'm not weak and fragile and emotional like you guys are, you know.

:p

Take care,
Lisa

In the year I have been working at B&B, I have gone to a commercial job with a male helper only twice. Always been the owners daughter. None of the guys at the accounts can work when she's around. Asking me all sorts of careful questions to figure out whether or not I'm with her.... She moved away though, and I have been doing all my commercial accounts with a 65 year old woman. Either that or I go solo. People always give the initial objection. "Big strong man had to bring a girl to move the heavy stuff..." But after that they never seem to mind.

So did you think you made the right choice by getting hitched to Greenie?

How much work is left to go on that project?

Do you still love him or are you like my wife and just used to him?

Who do you love more Greenie or 4-legged Marty?

Does he still get spontaneous wood all the time (I'm talking about Marty)?

Who opens the jars and kills the bugs most of the time him or you?

Does he leave the toilet seat up?

For me or for him? Who could ever answer that truly, since we don't know what would have happened (for better or worse) if we had taken a different path at any time in our lives.

Bob Foster said:

Which project? Project Greenie will outlive me, that's for sure!

Bob Foster said:

I don't think we're used to each other yet, but we have taught each other a lot of tolerance....and tolerance comes from love, right?

Bob Foster said:

That's easy, the one who's not being a PITA at the moment.

Bob Foster said:

Not as much since he got neutered. But he still likes to hump all the neighbor's dogs.

Bob Foster said:

It's about even. I'm not afraid of bugs.

Bob Foster said:

No. He just pees with it down and splatters the seat.....bastard!

Lisa

I have only a few things to say .I remember reading much of how you started in other bb threads.

So here goes...Darlin,you walk the walk and talk the talk,an succeed big time in a male dominated field.You suppoerted your family throught the tuffest times.An did a lot of it with a portable,sheer will and a huge heart...

You lost some one very dear to you and although at times depression surely set in,you drove on...

I take my hat off too you from afar...Many times over ...
