PostSubject: Needed to mow the back   Mon Mar 14, 2016 1:03 pm

Raked part of the back yard, thought I'd mow that part
before I moved the chairs and stuff. Got out the lawn
mower and the oil was fine, pushed it outside and filled
it up with gas. Pushed the primer button a few times and
got ahold of the starter rope and it just came out in my
hand.

Looks like it was chewed apart, I guess the squirrel when
it was building that nest. Oh well.

Rick came by Wednesday. Asked what we thought of the guy
he recommended to install the sliding glass door. Don't know
why but I showed him the lawnmower rope the squirrel ate
through and asked him where to get some.

He said Ace, no problem, just show it to them and named a
few workers there he knows. Told me about his flowers he
had planted. Something I forget in the middle, regular
marigolds on both sides and yellow marigolds on both sides
of that.

Picked up the rope and handle when he left, said he'd pick up
some rope his own self. I asked him if he wanted me to give
him the money and he said no, he'd bring the bill.

He came back yesterday afternoon, had some rope, maybe
too short, don't know yet. I said "What do I owe you?".
He said "I don't know."
I said "Where's the bill?"
He said "I don't have one."

I went in the office to get some money, not happy but
decided to give him $5. Before I got back in there he said
"It's $10." I knew better of course. Honey asked me if I
needed a $10 bill and I said no, put the $5 back and got a $10
and gave it to him. He had out a bill and said "Here's the
bill."

As soon as he left I told Honey that wasn't right, he's crazy.
She said "Look at the bill, he left it on the table."
I said no, I didn't care, couldn't see it anyway.
She got it and it said rope - $1.33 and two ger at $5 each,
what's a ger? I said geraniums. Just guessing.

That's the way he's always been, knew better than to fool
with him.

Yeah, he was a nut when I last saw him 5-6 years ago. i wonder if he actually thought the rope was 10 bucks and the geraniums were 2 for $1.33

Of course not. He's a grifter.
Always leaves some form of deniability or at least to show
some possibility that it was an honest mistake.

Always keeps the amount under $?. not sure what it is
currently, I think it used to be $20 so it's never criminal
fraud, always a misdemeanor at worst if somebody does
get mad enough to take it to court. No DA will fool
with it.
