Bandit signs - fellow investor busting my chops - Posted by Hank

Now I’ve gotten some of these calls before, but never from an investor. This one was also the worst. I had to reach for the masking tape to wrap around my head so as to keep my skull from exploding.
Words like “sc*my” and “greedy” were thrown in my general direction. I was also compared to a bank robber. BANK ROBBERY!!! It’s more like breaking the speed limit by 5 to 10 miles an hour, which evrybody does!
I consider myself to be a friendly as well as a thick skinned individual, but this lady’s tone just rubbed me the wrong way. After a couple minutes I shot back with words like “an*l retentive” and “out of your mind”. Looking back , I know it’s wrong to speak to a lady in such a way.
But what I want to know is, (and I really want to hear from those that may not agree with me) AM I REALLY MAKING THE INVESTMENT COMMUNITY LOOK BAD? … Are people that don’t like these signs so much going to be selling me (or my new friend as well as the rest of my local investment communtiy) houses anyway?
I haven’t even been putting up that many. About 60 on the street corners of which I take down much of them on Sunday night. I haven’t put up any in parking lots for weeks.
I wouldn’t be suprised if she called up code enforcement after our conversation ended.
I know I shouldn’t be wasting time with something so unimportant, but I just had to vent.
