Be considered "Rude",scaring total strangers, afterall!?
I am personally attempting to change any such perceptions about my scaring some customer (who has paid to be here) who is within "range".
This afternoon (Open every night AND SAt. & Sun. afternoons) a newbie was shielding the glare of the Sunday sun so he could see into the back of the hearse. I am in the hearse, waiting for him to do something like this, I slap my hand on the inside of the glass he has his face pressed up against! He jerks back of course,
I say:"Thank you!" (I enjoyed that!)
