Dilemma - Need Advice

Recommended Posts

I've been contacted to do some mole trapping for a hotel that specialises in naturism.

 

My dilemma is whether I should insist on wearing my knee pads and gloves? What do you more experienced pro's suggest?

Make sure you fill in every hole, some of those male nudists might decide to sunbath on their bellies, you'd have a lawsuit on your hands (and he'd have a trap on his tool).

I would explain that a cricket box was a health and safety requirement in case a mole shot out of the ground at close range . Especially if the weather was cold!

That's what I would tell the customer. You might be "luckier":)

I knew that I'd get some really good advice from you pro's on here. I tried to discuss it with my wife but she just dismissed it as being a small thing.

Oh Lord . The mind boggles at the potential for embarrassment.

Imagine shuffling into A&E with an unnaturally placed steel probe and a dangling Talpex and trying to explain that you really did slip on a cowpat. .....

I think I'd better check up on my health insurance before starting work.

It's OK! Dilemma over. The customer has literally just e-mailed to say that the job is off. I don't know if it was the fee or my insistence on wearing of moleskin cod piece that did it. :icon_redface:

With a bit of luck they'll book me in summer when I might be able to make a bigger impression.

An easy solution is to tell the hotel to put up signs saying "No sunbathing on your front without a towel as the presence of grubs and worms in the soil is encouraging the moles"
