I consider myself a semi-professional military “movee.” And if I’ve learned anything from four military moves in the past two years, it’s this: suck. up. to. your. movers. period.
On the list of people you should always attempt to charm, movers are second only to your mom. Or maybe your IRS auditor. Or your boss. Okay, they’re in the top five, anyway.
Because, at the end of the day, those men determine in what state all of your earthly possessions arrive at your new location (or worse yet, if they even arrive at all). Attached to that lamp your grandmother gave you? Hope the box with your brand new computer doesn’t “get lost” en route? These people have power. Serious power.
