This man, who I believe to be the owner of the business, came out to cut branches of a tree for my landlord in the backyard of the house directly in front of my apartment. I live in a duplex with a long drive, that is between the front houses backyard and the duplex. He parked his truck with cherry picker in my drive, directly behind my car (which means he could see it) and after notifying my neighbor why he was there, he began working. While I agree that my landlord should have informed me that he was coming, (trust me, it is a matter I am taking up with her) why could he not have walked a few feet farther to advise me as well?
When I came out to leave for work, the owner became rude with me. He first said "what, you can't make it?" While I do own a small vehicle, there was maybe 10 feet for me to pull out of the carport and I had my neighbors car on one side and the wall of my apartment on the other to contend with. When I told him no, he stated he "could make it"... I replied that was nice, but I couldn't. He then stated "Give me 10 minutes", to which I replied "no, I will be late for work" and that had I been informed he was coming, I could have moved the car before he started. To which he replied "Well, I told your neighbor!" This is when I became weary of his 'customer service technique' and informed him that there was a WALL between us and we didn't live together. He sparred back with "well it's going to take some time to move the truck!" and I said "it'll take longer if you keeping complaining about it" and I got into my car. I watched him talking to himself up in the cherry picker and suddenly 'spear chucked' the branch cutter down to his assistant, who of course, didn't attempt to catch the sharp tool. It then hit my neighbors car on the front left top fender causing damage. I heard the assistant call up to him "I hope you have insurance!" to which the man in the cherry picker said "there's no damage" and the assistant looked again and replied "yes.... Yes there IS". I stepped out of my car and looked. I then immediately text my neighbor with this mans Company name and phone number.
After I had left, my daughter in laws friend pulled up to pick up my DIL and she noticed the owner standing directly in front of my Grand Daughters open bedroom winder smoking a cigarette. She got out of her vehicle and said "there is a 2 year old child in that bedroom, please don't smoke there!" and the owner got rude with her and stepped forward about one step.
It is my opinion this man cares more for money than he does for clients, customers or people in general..... I highly suggest that NO ONE hire him!
I'm only giving him a star, because I can't post this without one. I wish there was negative ratings available on the site!
