Today was a great day!

Yesterday, this friend collected the black berry bush.
Ofcourse, we talked till late, so lovely.

Today we where together on her allotment to put some berry bush in the ground.
It was a sunny day, and great temperatures to work in.
While we worked on first gettting the shrubs out of the ground, digging, offcourse..
we talked and talked, that was soo nice.

Her allotment is at the end of the whole allotment park, so it is quiet and not much neighbors around to eavesdrop....

I worked just two hours and she was soo very happy and gratefull, for my help.

While i had the idea that i did nothing at all!

Later on, i went to the DIY/ construction company/ shop, to talk about my fence and how much it will cost and how much wood i have to order.
The guy in the shop was not really of much help, so i will go there, again and hopefully there is someone else to help me.

He looked at me, as if i was talking russian or something like that... a very slow brain... not in working order! LOL

Sometimes, you have that kind of folks working in shops, they are unwilling to think along with you, they just stand there, like a statue and dont think with you, but dont think at all! Or so it seems.....

I "feel" their onwillingness to cooperate, it is like walking through molasse.....
Aah, well, never mind...

It is a great shop, with great guys working there.

There is this one guy......?! Hmmm......

Always in for a laugh, making jokes, that very typical male energy...
I like that.
I feel much more at ease in such surroundings.

Glad you had a good day rose...

Try to find the guy who makes you laugh and get his help... At least it will be a nice visual if nothing else..
Good luck...

If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything...

I hear you , I was renewing a gym membership the other day and this one guy was useless, bizarrely passive aggressive in fact .. clearly didn’t want to be working there ..

I am glad you had a great day!

It always irritates and amazes me, when salespeople don't realise how off-putting they can be!!!

I understand what you are saying, alas ,that is the "normal" working attitude, in this part of Holland.
There are a lot of rude people, "working" in shops, but rather have you leave the shop! now!
