I finally got around to ordering mulch for the yard Weds......yes I know, I'm way behind schedule....blame the weather. It was supposed be delivered between 10 & 10:30 this morning so first thing I got out the tarp & laid it in the driveway where I wanted it dumped. Finally around 11:00 the doorbell rang & this young kid is standing there with a delivery receipt in his hand. After we got by the initial "I need to see the check first" . He asked where I wanted it, Well duh on the tarp of course. He took one look & said "you do realize it might all make it on there don't you?" I just said I'll be right out.
It took him 4 tries to back the truck in the driveway & then he kept stopping, getting out & checking, getting back in & backing up 2 feet & repeating the whole process. He finally started to dump it & stopped as he realized he forgotten to pull back the tarp that was covering the load. He looked at me very sheepishly & said " I've never done this before today. You're my second delivery!"
It took him about 20 mins to dump the entire load & it was spread halfway down the driveway! He kept apologizing for making a mess but I actually found the whole thing very amusing, especially when I finally gave him a rake & told him it would be easier to pull the rest of the mulch out with that instead what he was was trying!
I do hope the rest of his day went better!!
