Come on Edd.  

If this was a face to face we would be at blows.  you sound like the bloke in the pub determined to punch someone's lights out.

Sounds good Dave. you have got a sense of balance about this....the incident reflects more about the other guy than you so pleased you realise this

I know what you mean about loving the job too.  I always wanted to do a perfect job putting in more time than necessary and was paid for.  I had a lucrative job as well but hoped to replace it with planting out gardens.

I agree it must be a difficult and boring you on those tills.  Those bleepers would drive me mad....MAD I TELL YOU! MAD 

mostly though they still remain friendly and courteous.  They have my respect

Dave.....some people are incredibly offensve.  There are some lousy people out there.. I know it bothers you would bother me too....but just get it out of your head as quickly as possible.   

a few years back I tried gardening for a a hobby it is great but as a job it can be difficult.  I quit after one summer mainly because I was treated as a servant by some.  (I don't do servant very well )   I worked hard one day and the following week called again to be told I hadn't done much the week before.  I went through what I did and received an apology.  I downed tools and, despite frequent phone calls, I refused to go back.  

Dave, it would not surprise me if this ungrateful oik asks you to work for him's often the way it works.

Moved a couple of plants, planted a couple.  Removed and discarded some big  plants that have served their loyalty from me I'm afraid  apart from the wind it has been a pleasant day with even a spot or two of sun

did some minor indoor repairs too plus caught up with issues to resolve.
