Bob Kille Acuspect Home Inspection

Of all the things I could be writing about from my experiences at the NAHI & NACHI national conferences I pick this one experience cause it just sticks in my craw. I can’t decide if I’m just getting old and boring or if there’s a bigger cultural reason for rudeness.

All right, I’ll set the scene and you decide. I was with a new group of friends that I’d met at the vendor booths. We were all standing in the lobby waiting for a table at the local Olive Garden. Among us was a nice young girl who says she can’t order alcohol because she’s only nineteen.

Lets just call her Packy for now. Packy wants to know if I would be so kind as to order her a drink from the bar to which I respond, what will you have. Sex on the Beach or a Blow Job she replies with a straight face.

Not being much of a barfly in the last decade I wasn’t sure if she was putting me on or not. I’d be embarrassed to drink it yet alone order it, but here I go up to the bartender to ask for a Blow Job.

Yeh, it was embarrassing, the bartender didn’t know how to make one and I sure as heck wasn’t going to say I knew so the bartender points his finger at me and starts telling the patrons that the drink I ordered is called a Blow Job, did anyone know what’s in it. Turns out, someone did.

When I returned to the group with Packy’s drink and a slightly flush face I notice that Packy was busy with her phone, look like text messaging. So I’m standing there with her drink in my now cold hand chatting up and laughing with the others for a few minutes.

Curious to how someone could text message for so long on a phone I asked her who she was talking to, without looking up she states that she’s playing pac man on her phone and is nearly finished.

Now I don’t know about you, but as far as I can remember whenever I stood around with a group of friends talking and joking, none of them were playing pac man on their phone like the rest of us didn’t exist.

So I gota ask myself, were we that boring or is there a generation x/y thing going on here.
