Maybe you’ve had the opportunity, at some point in your life, to use a porta-potty on a construction site. I know, I know… most of my dear readers probably haven’t. It’s one of those opportunities I take for granted.
Well, all this to say a little something about that line of work.
Every month I write plenty of checks for the business. I buy bricks and sheetrock. I pay plumbers and painters. I rent dumpsters and portable toilets. This month, when that bill arrived from Mighty Vac Pumping, with its cheerful hand-stamped envelope and its brightly colored invoice paper, I just had to smile again. These people charge a minimal fee to drive around in trucks taking care of this delicate situation. They keep those little plastic buildings as spic and span as can be.
What a service. Truly! What a service!
It’s not a glamorous business. Nothing very exciting about it. But we sure couldn’t get along without them.
Thank you, all over again, to the people who keep our jobsites rolling. And today, just a special thank you to the crew that keeps that toilet paper rolling!
