    So I call my pet sitter and ask double check with him to switch eggs over from the turner to the wire, just to be safe because tomorrow may be too late. Anyway, he asks how to get in the house. I told him he can slip in through the garage. 'Uh, how do I get in the garage?' [​IMG]

    My new shipment of meat chickens has been residing in the garage for the past week! I included it EXPLICITLY on the instructions, bolded even! [​IMG]

    So, my broilers are all dead now. UGGGGGHHHHHHH! [​IMG]

    Do I tell him? Or not? He's a neighbor, so I don't want to hurt his feelings, but GAG ME WITH A WOODEN SPOON! [​IMG]

    Edit: He was being paid.

    1) if this person is being paid you definitely say something and you dont pay them.

    2) if they are a volunteer, might just show them the note and the bolded segment and ask what happened?

    So sorry!

    You PAID him?!? No, no no no no. He gets no money. he didn't do they job, and in fact COST you money. What a dummy. Seriously, you had it in writing, what is his freakin' deal?!?

    I'd make him pay you for the damages. What a jerk. [​IMG]
  9. Oh my! Have the new chicks in the garage been unattended for a week? That'll be unpleasant to come home to. What is your 'pet-sitter' being paid to tend? Hopefuly no other pets in the house/garage that needed tending?
    Hurt his feelings, my eye. I'd hurt more than his feelings.

  10. That is HORRID. Those poor animals must have suffered a really terrible death. You should absolutely say something to him. Horrid.
