Yesterday I blogged about my pet peeves when it comes to driving Well, today it’s the one pet peeve I have about big crowds, like you’ll find at Canada’s Farm Progress Show. The thing I hate about a big crowd is the people that walk slower than slow, especially when I’m trying to make a quick break for the washroom. I always seem to get behind these people and there are a lot of them at the Farm Progress Show. The trouble is, there are so many people walking slowly it’s tough finding a seam to break through to race to the front of the pack, and then, once I get to the front of that pack, I’m suddenly at the back of another. It never ends. I guess if I was a little more patient it wouldn’t really matter, and really, in the end, it doesn’t matter!
Today is my last day broadcasting at the show with the great people at Warner Industries. Warner bills itself as the home of “Fun, Friendly People.” Anyone who has ever dealt with Warner Industries knows this isn’t just a motto, it’s the absolute truth. Everyone I have ever worked with at Warner fits that bill to a tee. They’re very friendly and they’re always smiling. It’s a great business model for how to succeed. They obviously have a terrific vetting process in place when it comes to hiring employees, because I’ve never come across an employee that I would label a “dud.”
After today it’s time for some fun and sun. The jeans will be going into the drawer to be replaced by shorts and sandals. It’s vacation time. I’ll be back just in time for Country Thunder Saskatchewan.
I just hope my vacation moves as slowly as the people do at the Farm Progress Show!
