A friend recently shared this story:
Jack was a gentleman as he introduced himself. Standing all of 5’5” and 70 years old, he was in better shape than most 40-year-olds. His obvious strength and muscles left no doubt of his ability to do the job. He was here to pull up old flooring and install hardwood in the kitchen and living room.
Jack was a sub-contractor from the flooring company my friend and her husband had hired. Having worked with this firm on previous projects, they trusted that whoever was sent to get the job done would get it done right.
Jack was no exception. He worked the boards as an expert and the installation was flawless.
His love of conversation and need to express his political, religious and world view opinions, however, was not.
