I Want Rose Colored Glasses!!

Ohhh the things I've seen....sometimes these things keep me up at night. Because I wonder...have I had the weirdo magnet all my life?

or have I just gotten "ed-u-ma-cated" enough to finally give it a name?

The WEIRDO MAGNET

What have I seen you ask?
well, most of you know I started working in the construction industry when I was 18. (and that was almost 20 years ago)
So it was not unusual for MOI, to be the only female within 40 miles in a construction trailer.
I got used to a lot real fast!

I also grew a thick skin and a voice....ok a big mouth but I digress.

So it is no wonder I want to be surrounded by beauty, symmetry and laughter at this point in life?
I think not!
So lets take a look at some before and afters of my garden and how its transpired thru the past 7 years while I regale you of my Construction Weirdo's....



I have seen a grown man so pissed over what happened at a weekly meeting, that he rammed his truck into our construction trailer....Three times!

I have seen a knock down drag out fist fight because 2 guys wanted to argue the best way to install a street sign.

A Mason showed up on the jobsite drunk as a skunk and was so mad at being immediately fired.... he went up to the roof of a 4 story Condo and tried to pee onto his bosses head!!..he missed by the way.

Do you see why I can't sleep sometimes?

The time a group of landscapers tipped over several 18' tall palm trees onto our construction trailer......because they were mad at the GC for screaming at them. 

For the record:
 I'd have tipped a palm tree on him too if he called me "El Stupido Mexi-dummo".

I watched an employee convince his boss that his company truck was leaking anti freeze....by goading him into dipping his fingers into the yellow puddle and tasting it.
Do I need to mention that it was NOT anti freeze? 
and the "Boss" chased that guy for 20 minutes and never caught him when HE found out what it REALLY was?
That's ok....the boss was a royal jerk anyway.

I think this is a much better thought at the end of the day.

Don't you?
