If you go to Home Depot in Savannah GA and you don't feel like your being helped, ask for Joe.
Now Joe, Joe seemed to know right off the bat that we had questions.
And he had answers.
The idea is to build a short set of steps off the new French doors at the house my girlfriend shares with Ed sister. This project was contemplated by us, and we are all three pretty smart. Big brains all around.
We found out we may not be carpenters.
And that’s okay because Joe walked us through every step. Even if we weren’t working as he said “in an ideal world” which Shawna quickly reassured him we were. He was exceedingly helpful, even if it felt like we were getting a class from a high school shop teacher.
And just when we thought we were done, we had gone to another aisle even, and Joe once again appeared to help us out.
My boss, well hell, everyone tells that same story...
Honestly though, I think he is a fool and has not been nor will he ever be an effective leader of men. End of story on that.
If you treat your people like children, that’s what they will act like. If you treat them like men, and hold them to that standard that’s what you can expect. Unless they aren’t grown. And are just boys.
Some of us work with them.
The day simply cannot be spoilt though. Something…. Scratch that, someone always helps pull it through. And all it takes is one of her smiles. Or the sound of an incoming text message.
I do believe a good walk is the best way to end the day, or start it, or fill it. People in the centuries before us did so much more with so little it seems like, and its refreshing to me to be able to enjoy something that my counterpart 100 years ago would have enjoyed.
A nice walk through the streets of Savannah with someone special!
