Just put it down sir

Had a guy by the vinyl flooring asking about how durable they are. Told him about each one we carry and he said he'd "test them out". Proceeds to take a reciprocating saw blade and scratch each and every sample of vinyl we had out, saying "No this one scratches, this one too." Just started thinking to myself "No s*** they scratch if you're slashing a blade across them like you're slicing a baguette." Politely, but firmly asked him to stop, said he'd think about getting it and left.

Besides, I don't let my kids out of my sight when we're in public. The one exception I'll give is the Chinese family that brings their 10 year old with them. He speaks far better English than his parents or grandparents, and he's nicer to deal with, too!

You put what under it?

Had a customer come in today asking for a sealant for a click lock vinyl floor. I asked the customer what he needed the sealant for since the flooring is marketed as being waterproof, no sealant is needed. Customer replied that the flooring wasn't staying together and kept breaking apart at the click-lock point. I asked him if he made sure the flooring underneath had been checked for levelness and if there were any dips in the flooring. Customer replied that there weren't any issues there. Asked them if they left a 1/4 inch gap from walls for expansion [...]
