Some time ago I worked in construction building new homes for first time home buyers. I worked alongside one exceptionally surly superintendent who had made the rounds in the industry for decades. He had stops at a minimum of six homebuilders that I could count, and didn’t make it to Wednesday without threatening to walk out. One day I looked down the block where we were both building homes and saw my co-worker in a yelling match with one of his homeowners. At least twenty of our trades had stopped their work to enjoy the show. Later that day back in the office he had cleared out his desk and written some colorful language on the company whiteboard. Apparently he thought all of his team members, including me, were a special kind of number one.
