Little lonesome an arm about maybe. Eat it maybe next time you're not going to need sane. Because of and whether it's here now and say I'm maybe he'll stop saintly some answers is as well as the context of the conversation that we use in white guy at my house to sell me contracting services. How the upper contact. It was discussed seeing his. Somebody's house he was in previously. And how he felt that they were. Doing something to set him up or something and any said it's a type of living. Now. And then dropped whistler. So they go. I was final of the did.

Please try to sell us a contract he's at his right before that my wife said. Here's my credit card giving the price walked out the door congratulations on your sale. In the any dropped it. All man. Anyway it you can't let people get away with that in today's day and aids I think I mean I know. In my heart of hearts I know it's right you gotta tell people now you can't do that you don't have to be confrontational you don't have to punch him in the face. But you gotta let him know it's not okay and for once I was able to diesel fight insulates. So you know anyway that was my story. And as soon as he laughs I turnaround and Katie is on the phone calling another contractor. To boot another appointment. She's gonna tin cup this thing until we get the word then we got yeah. Time to look at the Yelp reviews. You have nothing there there's no room man. Yes Doug I dedicate your act Cady was shocked and appalled. I saw her phased pullback we were kind of at one point because it did. His his his little talks about how we view the world kind of went on for awhile at one point. We are we ahead grandstand at a little a little bit we're squeezing each other's hand kind of like don't worry it's okay we're gonna get through this thing because it seems like is it a good installer doesn't matter is Purcell police until both learn. Yeah. Because we're all at school. The kids were all at school but hey if you ever see anybody saying anything like bad being about race or gender. Or bullying. Or anything like that just tell him it's not okay. And if you can not give money that makes it even better because I definitely real business think they'll remember that. So racism alive and well.
