Still have a few fans

Post by milspec6 on Mon May 21, 2018 7:05 pm

I was back to cleaning for the Elephants and Giraffes tonight. It has been many months since the last visit and the weather was still very hot and humid so my mood was a little poor. Once I started cleaning, I remembered that the Giraffes responded to my singing Sinatra songs the last time, so I gave it another go.....they still love it. They weren't as happy with the modern stuff, but I could go with any Sinatra classic and they would come right up to the railings.

Say what you want about commercial cleaning, but it is a pretty good business when you can make some money and pet a giraffe. There aren't many occupations like that.

Glad to see you doing a commercial job. Feels good when I gets busy.
-do you have referal plan? Like leaving a card or $10 off coup in the lunch room.?
All the people there are potential jobs, but you got to ask them for the work.

Funny thing, I went to my postal interview today (don't think I got it) and was asked to submit a bid on the floors. The sort and loading room had probably 60 year old tile (black in color) which looked more like a dirt path from all the heavy carts with steel wheels rolling over them. They were going to just replace them, but they have asbestos adhesive and you really can't shut down the post office for a week to mitigate it.

I have done quite a few strip and wax jobs in the past, but this one didn't look like one that had a lot of hope of stellar results. Even worse, the Postmaster kept recalling the last time that it was done and how it "shined like glass". I don't know what decade that was in, but I didn't share the same optimism so I declined at this point.

I will find out the results of the interview by the end of the week, but I went in ranked second and I didn't get the feeling that I moved up when it ended.
