Sunday, 07 Jun 09 Barmy 30°C / 86°F

The jet-sprayer is back. And none the wise apparently, even after I have complained to the town council about his appalling performance.

Found two of my plants uprooted – my Genovese basil and one of my Daun Dewa. Looks like he just sprayed without looking and lugging the hose without even seeing what was in front of him.

I am not against hired/contract workers. I am just against slipshod attitudes. My dad once told me that these workers would take their frustrations out on apartment owners by doing minor but still dastardly deeds like putting the detritus from their washing into potted plants and littering the area without even bothering to clean it up.

    I really hope so. They were really pulled out of the soil.

    I know it’s a hum-drum thankless job for him and I understand (to a certain degree) the frustration… but I don’t like this kind of attitude still.
