What are your biggest pet peeves?

Recommended Posts

Groundies who sit on there arse and wait till the whole trees down before they even think about doing anything. 

Plastic roofs. 

Rusty metal stakes that look like saplings. 

Phoenix palms. 

The client following you around saying "be careful" and standing in the drop zone after you've asked them to move 3 times already. 

Lazy colleagues. 

Bad cups of tea.

People who think its ok to ignore warnings on prescription meds and turn up for work anyway, putting themselves and others at risk. Just as risky as being drunk or stoned at work.

Ive noticed that it seems to be a habit nowadays,for young fellows to spend the greater part of the journey on the passenger seats of my tipper to the job site, with their hand down the front of their trousers.
I find this very distasteful and have explained so, but it seems that it’s a habit that’s difficult to stop.
I turned a blind eye to it for a start, but had to say something I’m afraid.

When you go to do a quote, the customer tells you what they want, you ask 

'Is there anything else?'

Customer replies 'No that's it'

You add it up and tell them the total cost, then they say...

'Oh, actually there's also this......' 

Then when you say that will be another £xx they ask if it can be included in the first quoted price.

 

When a customers asks..

'While you are here - can you tell me what tree/shrub this is'

You tell them and they reply 'Yes, that's right'

Maybe that's a good thing that they are trying to weed out the blaggers???
