Be Ready!

As I have mentioned before, my summer job is a furniture mover.

I actually like the job. It is a nice change of pace from being a teacher, and it is also my summer weight-loss program. Some teachers do summer school. Some take vacations. There are many that have a trade that thy work at to make ends meet. Me, I move furniture and drive a big truck.

But the longer I do this, the more I find things that really bug me. The other day I mentioned one about things being sticky. Today I want to mention one about being ready.

I am tired to going to people's houses and they are not ready for the movers. I am talking about stuff not being in the boxes. Now, maybe they have some emotional attachment to their house, but I don't! In fact, one of my major goals when I arrive at a house is to get the job done as quickly as possible... and leave!

I don't want to be mean about it, but when it is moving day, have your stuff in boxes.

  1. Matt,
    What timely advise! We just had the moving man over at our house just this morning (Wed) to look at moving us to another part of town. He said, "now, you are going to have all this stuff in boxes, right?" I wanted to say, "no, that is what we are paying YOU for!", but I was nice and said, we will try.

    We are actually paying them for the packing part, too, but, hey, this is Thailand!

    Have a nice summer!


Leave a thought of your own.
