Watch your back, boys...

My daughter is the Field Manager here at T-Square. Bless her heart, she does an outstanding job. It's not always a good thing to bring family into a business. We had a rough start but now, over 7 years later, I don't know what I would do without her.

She does everything. Among her toughest jobs is riding herd over the refs, making sure they are doing what they are suppose to be doing and are where they are suppose to be. She manages to hold her own in this mostly testosterone powered sport. She is also a pretty good gun tech.

Which brings me to what this post is about.

She is most often found at the front of the pro-shop while I sit in the back at my work bench/office. Almost on a daily basis someone will come in needing a gun repair, look at her and walk across the pro-shop to me. I'll look up to see her face, knowing she is glaring bullet holes into the customer's back.

Sometimes, when I know she is really busy with something else, I will go ahead and help the customer. But it's more fun to listen to the customer's assessment and then call my daughter over and ask her to handle it. Sometimes the customer gets it. Most times they don't.

This past weekend a player came in with a gun that wasn't working. I was outside so he was "forced" to talk to her. She looked the gun over and asked him when he last changed the battery. His reply was, "Oh no, it can't be the battery. Could someone else look at it for me?"

Well, I knew what was going on the moment she came around the corner to get me. It was that "Some knucklehead inside thinks a girl can't know anything about paintball guns." look! Without knowing what she had asked him I went inside to check the gun. After a quick look I replaced the battery and handed the player a working gun.

"Gee, thanks," he said and he never took his eyes off the ground as he slid out of the shop past my daughter.

Be careful making assumptions. Especially when it comes to female field managers!

(I love you, darlin.)
