With the direction we are headed in... You are probably right.

I've been thinking about it.
Wonder if we would get in trouble for mace or a stun gun?
Amen! I carry a 12" bowie knife on my hip. I hear the slightest bark, growl or stampede, the steel comes out. I had a dog attack me in one basement when i was laying on my belly fixing a boiler. Thank god Carhardt makes thick jackets. Stab in the side and turn the knife to deflate the lung.-Puppy drops

Did some work at a dog training facility, where they specialize in training aggressive dogs. Most were locked up on arrival, except for one that even the owner was afraid of. Made it clear to me that I was not to go back to my truck without him being in the yard. I didn't need my pipe wrench that day, but it never left my side
Plumber friend, decapitated a german shepard with a shovel. Courts basically laughed at the woman and told her they wouldn't be there if she could control her pets.
I have punted several ankle biters. Made one old lady cry. Went on to tell me it would't bite me, she had only had it 4 days. I have a Rottweiler, not afraid of dogs. If you are, they will know it. Never had an issue with a big dog, always them little worthless bark machines. I tell the customer to control their dog, if they don't I will make the dog not like me and be afraid of me. I don't care if they are watching or not. Not hard to lock a dog in a bedroom.
Gotcha. Comp exempt as they call it here.

Home owner came out and asked what I did to his dog. I said we were just communicating!
Now if you could just have had the wife put down...

Which makes more sense to you?
- turning your thermostat back and being uncomfortable. Maybe saving 5-10%
- leaving your thermostat where everyone is comfortable. Saving 30-70%
DO THE NUMBERS! Step on a HOMESCALE.
What is comfort? Well, it AIN'T just TEMPERATURE!
Energy Obese? An audit is the next step - go to BPI.org
, or RESNET
, and find an auditor near you.
It would be a bit over $18K if it were me.
I hope you make a full recovery!
I've been bitten at work myself ,,,and it sucks .
One time the HO had a kid hold the dog on a leash and the next thing I know the kid turned the dog loose.
The dog bit me and I had teeth holes in my leg...when I showed the HO the ***** got mad at ME demanding to know what I did to provoke her dog!!!!!!!!!!!
I was beyond pissed at this point and left .
BTW in my opinion you should get all your bills paid , covered for lost time and revenue,and pain and suffering...
Anyone who fails to secure their animals is asking for it. Its their problem and fault . Not the dogs and not yours either.
I'm not saying be angry ... Make sure you get everything you would have earned,all your bills paid plus a bonus for all the BS you have and are going thru ,past present and future
I laughed so hard I almost threw up ...thank you!!!
