Home Depot Complaint - Watch The Workers On Your Property
LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CALIFORNIA -- While I must say the new roof on my house passed city inspection and seems to be just fine, I do have a problem with the workers, who on the last day, just before leaving, decided to strip all but one of the green fruits from my mandarin orange sapling. They did not even bother to pick them properly, merely yanking the fruit off, leaving pieces of skin attached to the stem, which could have broken the fragile trunk. Thank God I had the tree staked or it would have been broken in half for sure.
I had locked the gates the night before, got up early to unlock them. At that time the fruit was on the tree...I know, because it is on my way to the gate and the stark white of the remaining skins would have caught my eye. When I brought it up, the worker's supervisor Todd stated, "Did you SEE them do it?" Hello, I'm the victim, not you. The fruit was there in the morning and after the last guy left it was gone. Todd, having called the workers, said they had not used the back gate even, which was not true as I had seen some of them go out, including one who was sweeping the walk just inside the gate. I was told my car in the driveway would be locked up that night for me, though around 9 P.M. I went to check and it was unlocked and the back gate left wide open.
After you take care of a little sapling tree for a year is it so wrong to be upset at having the fruit thoughtlessly stolen? The fruit wasn't even ripe! Just don't turn your back on these guys. If they'll steal when they're outside, I can't imagine what they'd do in your house!
