Topic: Man watching whilst in deck chair

Posted by loudog on 12 Oct. 2017,17:06Hi chaps. I completed a drive and the neighbour came out and asked me to do his. I turned up to do his job yesterday and he said, you don't mind if I watch do you. I said no that's fine, well within fifteen minutes he's brought out a deckchair and won't stop looking. He has seen the quality of my work and I know it's up to him but it's very off putting. How would you deal with it as I got about a week of it. He's about 70 and he even put his rigger boots on. 😀

He's ok to hold the tape and a few things but it's like having an extra shadow.

The worst is when you sit in the van for lunch, then they come out, tap on the glass and start boring you with their illness and hospital appointments!!!
