What are your biggest pet peeves?

Recommended Posts

Theres bunch of things in this line of work that really get on my nerves, in no particular order:

 

Groundies wearing sawpods whilst doing random tasks like stump grinding
People wearing face shields as well as glasses
People using blunt saws because they are too lazy to stop and sharpen(why oh why)
Dangling the climbing saw below you, letting it bash against the tree and get dragged through forks
Stupid overpriced gadgets and gizmos - the people that buy them and think it actually makes a difference - people who make them
Wearing stickers on helmets, like they believe they are actually sponsored by someone

Putting brand name stickers on work trucks....Stihl? seriously?

People with no actual arboricultural qualifications highlighting NPTC qualified on their business cards
Customers not bringing out Tea and biscuits when its pouring with rain

 

I could go on and on but don't want to spoil the game for everyone else.


What are yours?

I have two questions for you.

1. Witch gizmos do you mean, exactly? 

2. "People who advertise NTPC qualified" (???) What would you prefer they stick on their card then? You come across as very presumptuous.

All a bit moany, but that’s the point I guess.

 

Ringing down a spar with a big saw, seeing the nice big shavings coming out the back, then realizing your fly is open and your underpants are filling up and will become a thing of torture till you get down and ‘do the housework’ (behind a shed usually)
