An Unacceptable Level Of Unacceptability

, , , | Right | April 8, 2019

(I’m spending a summer working for a full-service trucking company, working mostly as a household mover. One particular day there are too many moves scheduled that are too big for the regular moving team to get done, so a couple of the freight guys and I grab a box truck usually used for freight hauling and head 45 minutes north to do a moving job. We load up the first round and get to the new house. After about thirty minutes of unloading, complying with the “only one man in the house carrying stuff across a series of runners” rule the woman of the house has implemented, she comes outside and flips out.)

Woman: “LOOK AT MY DRIVEWAY! WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO MY DRIVEWAY?!”

(Her driveway is newly-laid concrete and it has a trail of light black soot footprints on it from the freight truck.)

Woman: “This is unacceptable. Why is that truck so dirty? I want it cleaned!”

(We then proceeded to drive south 45 minutes, spent an hour cleaning the truck and lining it with plastic sheets, then drove back north to load and unload the rest of their stuff.)
