    Either way, very cool.

    I'm charming but usually all wet at the end of the job. Then I get in my van and turn on the ac which dries out my shirt except for a wet stripe going diagonally across from my seat belt.

    I agree.

    Over wetting the carpet I can fix, adjust pressure, dry strokes, etc.

    Being a dumbass/not charming I can't help!

    I was on a job the other day and when I showed up the painter was there. All the base boards had just been painted. I was not happy. The home owner told me to clean anyway and they would touch up. Somehow I made it through the job without making any marks in the wet paint. But that's not the point of this post.

    While I was there I noticed that the painter kept talking and joking around with the homeowner. The painter was drinking a beer and had really strong body odor. The guy really thought he had some people skills going for him. I could tell the homeowner just wanted him to shut up and get done. It's funny how many people think they are good with their customers when in reality they suck. I know many carpet cleaners like this also.

    Both are important but --It depends on the customer.
    Knowing when to bond and connect or shut up and get to work are important.
