We scheduled the tree dude to come out to look at -  guess what -  trees. That’s what tree dudes do. He arrived at the agreed upon 9 O’clock, but exactly 4 days past the one we originally scheduled. His excuse, and I quote: “I was busy.” Shockingly, I wasn’t shocked.

Please make note of the “expectation” level in your trade, and how to summarily trounce it. In tree dude’s case, “showing up” equates to a Nordstroms level of service.

And yes, in case you wondered, he was in a decade-old white GMC work truck, with the faded logo of the former company who had it. Transmission fluid leaked at a transfusion-like rate on our brick pavers. Whatever. It’ll save me on Round-Up for my between-brick weeds, but what if I actually didn’t want Trans-Medic flowing down my driveway?
