Was in a prospective clients place around a week ago. Was bummed when the person there told me his boss wasn't around when boom, the phone rang. Was none other, correct guess, his boss. Since I mainly speak English when working Tel-Aviv, I did with said gentleman and shared with him what I do b4 his boss rang. Under the impression that I don't understand Hebrew, I heard him tell his boss, "maybe you should make an appointment with this guy, הוא נירה מקצוען". Hebrew for "he looks like a professional."
Don't get me wrong, I happen to be a professional (at a couple things), but what is this frikin idiocy? Shuuure, I'll play along, but, if you knew who I was inside - a long bearded countryman who doesn't truly give a fuck with wings about your business, can stare, still, as a Cherokee during a hunt, at his prey/client b4 pouncing - you probably wouldn't grant me the access you so easily do. All the while, self deceived by what is really just a fabric front. You are lucky, I am me, and not a dick.
Side note: Homes are currently being robbed by gunmen all over NYC posing and dressed as Con-Ed workers. What d'ya think about that? Victims, soon to be very much more so, eager for energy, with grateful smiles, opening their doors to be met with a gun in their face.
Yip, Shuuure, play your game I shall, and I do...
Thanks for reading this.
