It was a classic experience that I encountered with one of the most unique user of Love Potion. I think it is good to share some laughter with you all. There are all sorts of farmers in Swiftlet farming. Thru my many years of visiting and revamping farm to building new ones. I encountered all sorts of funny things and this is a classic one that caught me off guarded!
It started …………
I received a call from a farm owner from Jerantut Mr. A. He has just started his farm few months ago. It was a 2 storey shop. The ground floor he uses for his business and the 1st floor converted into swiftlets farm.
He was quite disappointed that after few days his farm started it sounds there were hardly any birds playing around the entrance. After waited for another month there is not a single birds stayed in his farm.
He called me and complained about his dissatisfaction and also complained about the things that his consultant did. He said every time the consultant visited his farm he would follow along so that he could learn something from him but to his disappointment the consultant always asked him to wait outside. He regretted that he engaged this consultant to build his farm. For now he couldn’t do anything but to wait.
He has got no guts to take back the keys from the consultant yet keep complaining about his skill. I think this is not fair to either party.
I advise him to be patient and he should consult his consultant for advice and don’t have to be afraid to ask question pertaining to the farm. He should not ask me about his farm because I am not the one who built his farm. I replied Mr. A I cannot comment on that it is not fair to comment about the things your consultant did so nothing much from my mouth.
He heard about the Love Potion from friends and orders some Love Potions. He followed the instruction and sprayed the Love Potion at his farm.
It was quite a while if I am not mistaken probably 1-2 months ago he had ordered the Love Potion.
He called me few days ago and conversation as follows:
Mr.A: James, how are you? I have bought Love Potion from you, can you still remember me?
Me: I am fine, I think so, and how can I help you?
Mr. A: James, can I spray the Love Potion Down stair?
Me: Down stair? Why only down stair? You should spray all floors.
Mr.A: NO...No…No. I just want to spray down stair. And now after I sprayed Love Potion there are hundreds of birds playing at the entrance hole. Previously there were no birds at all. I am dam happy. So can I spray down stair? Can the birds still smell it?
Me: That is good sign then why do you want to spray down stair only? (I doubted and confused) Is your shop, 2 floors converted into farm?
Mr. A: NO only one floor converted into farm. The ground floor I do business.
Me: Then you should spray up stair not down stair. (Me dam confused). How can the birds smell if you spray Love Potion at ground floor and your farm is on the 1st floor?
Mr.A : If I spray up stair the consultant don’t allow. Furthermore he would know I am spraying Aroma (Love Potion)
Me: Hey…..Mr.A what do you want now? (I am a bit pissed) Sprayed Love Potion and all birds came, previously there were no birds. Now still not happy. What do you want?
With my sincerity of helping him I ended up as a fool. After a long battle with his stupidity I discovered I was actually being fooled by him. Thru his confession he has no access to his farm. The consultant is holding the keys. What he did was he sprayed the love Potion on the outside wall below the entrance hole. He must have used a ladder to spray the Love Potion on the entrance which is a widow opening.
His consultant doesn’t allow him to have access to his farm. After sprayed Love Potion at the entrance hole there were hundreds of birds swamping into his farm.
He is ashamed to let me know that he has no access to his own farm. He was so silly that he didn’t know that I knew all these. Commonly the consultant will hold the keys of the farm they built. But this farmer thought I knew nothing.
That is why so many farms failed. With such mentality how could not all farms failed?
Sometime we have to be sincere not only to ourselves but to others too if want people to help us.
Good farming All!
Ever since then, I give this farmer a nick name I spray Down………….stair ..ha..ha..ha…
