People Who Brag
As you may know,i am and old timer and been to a lot of places and met a lot of people.
I am a very quite soul and like to listen to folks,mostly,lets call them " GEOLOGICAL EXPERTS",which means they are experts in their own territory or their own minds.
I have worked with a few and been to little stores or visited hunting camps that had some!
I would say that because i am a good listener,they feel that i really follow their lead and use them as my idol ?
Example: I moved to this place i am at now,for a job. That was 15 years ago. I am a trouble shooting person. I got a job in a very big hospital facility.After 2 months my Supervisor tells me he hired another fellow. A buddy of his? " YOU WILL LIKE HIM" he tells me "HE HUNTS AND FISHES PLUS HAS A LOT OF GUNS!" OK Cool,i think?
I take my time feeling him out to see what he is like!After a couple of weeks i start talking hunting. Its October! Where we work is up in the mountains and deer,back then,before the big selling of doe license to kill them all off,were all over our place. Bears also!
Well then he starts: I will only use such and such rifle and only use Swift a frame bullets. When i shoot one i want to make sure it goes down!I am thinking OK,Good for you. Must be one heck of a hunter,i figure? I don't ask him anymore of his endeavors.
Well,Mister Expert,as i find out,has not got a deer in 25 years and he has a 36 acre farm !!!!
Then,after 5 years of working around him,i got to not care for him,so i kept away from him,a lot?
Turns out,Mr. Swift A Frame finally got a buck??? Yep, a buck! Yes sir a Buck and a fine??? Seems Mr.A Frame shot it in a safety zone and the home owner called the Game Protector! He didn't even get it gutted till the Game warden got there and nailed him.
He never told us,at work about this but you know how the grape vine works!
Turns out he had to pay a pretty good fine and lost the buck!
And you know what? The longer i was around him.at work,the more his personality got to me and i just,i shouldn't say this,but i hated him!
I only brag about my kids and grandchildren and it comes back to bite me sometimes?
