got a funny call tonight at 7pm that went something this.
We had a pleasant enough convo about the bees in his wall/roof. I told him early in the piece that i wasnt his man as i am not a builder etc...but was happy to talk him through it as he was keen not have the bees killed.
Him: So what can you do for me?
me: the only thing i can offer is i could pull it apart and rescue the bees...you are better off calling around to find someone who can do the whole job.
Him: So, what, are you gonna put it back together for nothing?
me: starts laughing, as i said i aint a builder so i cant put it back together at all, but why would you think i would work for nothing?
him: oh well, too bad, its bees and you are supposed to....
me: hang on a sec, you are calling me and interrupting my evening scotch for advice and complaining cos i wont work for free?
him: hangs up
10min later, not realising he had called me again
him: hey my name is X and i have this bee issue, yada yada yada (me listening carefully and smiling to myself)
me: umm yeah you just called me and hung up, but i am still willing to help you
him oh sorry, i didnt mean to ring you back etc
me: its ok, but next time try not to be rude to people who are trying to help you for free in their own time....
him: hangs up
I have his number and could ring him back and tell him he is a dick, but i couldn't be bothered. As my wife says :hope he likes bees"
