Been there , done that…twenty+ years of lumber yard work and every once in a while you have to deal with total morons that have NO respect for the yard help. I’d help anyone that needed to find their “perfect” pieces of wood and most would restack the rest with me after making their selections. If I knew my customer was in a rush to get to the job site , I would restack things by myself , knowing that I had actually helped them and that they would be back again…”job security” I guess .
People have gotten so bad in some areas , the lumber yards don’t allow them into their yards .The customers place their orders and the stock is taken from the tops of the piles (as is, meeting code ) and that is what the customers get….no more selection…..People like your moron make you appreciate your good customers even more…....I have to quote one of my former co-workers here. No matter what happened in the lumberyard , he would always say that ”it’s only a movie” , we would laugh and go on with our days : )
Best wishes on your future job…I couldn’t live without my Chiropractor !!

-- I'm absolutely positive that I couldn't be more uncertain!
