People are watching

Post by milspec6 on Tue Jun 21, 2016 11:12 am

I just finished up working another flood job today at noon. While I was checking my emails in the van, one of the larger disaster franchises (think bright green trucks) pulled up at the neighbor's house across the street. Three trucks showed up and out came the techs.

Each one was wearing basketball shorts and t-shirts, unshaven, and one even walked up into the guy's lawn and lit up a cigarette. I sat there watching these guys standing in this guy's yard under a shade tree while smoking. The image was terrible to say the least....I would have thrown them off my place if I was that customer.

I started to film it and then thought better about it as I am not looking to start a war with the franchise, but tighten your game guys. I was probably not the only one watching in the neighborhood.

I try very hard to remember that someone might be watching me at all times.....often they are. That means being in uniform, clean shaven, combed hair, and acting like a professional. I have no desire to end up on youtube for looking like what I witnessed today.

Yeah I agreed, often times I accidentally see a Webcam in my customer's bedroom, I wouldn't be surprised if any of them actually put sound recording device as well, I always say the walls have ear, be careful what you say and do at the customer's house.

A camera in the bedroom is probably for making home movies

You guys remember that tower house I cleaned that had what I thought were camera pedestals at the foot and head of the bed. Forward to 2:45 seconds to check out the bedroom.

Good point! Someone is always watching when you're on the job. Especially as a business owner you always have to keep a high standard to keep all your customers happy. Here in Sanford FL people often forget that perception is reality and I see workers smoking and acting like kids while in public working.
