Dave noted that Vito was well and truly up against it this week, Dave offered to lend a hand with plant advice, extra soil and general support. Vito had previously been forced to send his landscape gardener and his team home, without being able to afford their pay. Dave, who is on site and looks after common areas, heard about their situation and took pity on the struggling couple.

Vito let his landscape gardener know by phone about the offer, which understandably got upset. He expressed that he was not happy that Dave completed the design he had made and potentially took credit for it.

Vito quickly agreed with his frustrations and did not specify what Dave had offered.

“I understand that,” he assured his landscape gardener.

“We do not want to be the meat in the sandwich,” Tanya added, explaining that even though the couple did not want to be part of a landscape gardener face-off … they really needed any help they could get.

Unfortunately, that was about to be inevitable. When a confused Dave heard about the phone call, he went over to discuss things further with Vito.

He immediately asked Vito why the confusion had arisen, explaining that he had simply let Vito know that he had his support if he needed it, and had clarified that he could not perform any actual physical work.

“So I do not know how it is that I take over landscaping!” Dave said clearly annoyed.

Vito continued busy painting, turning his back on Dave and telling him he needed to take things up with his landscape gardener directly.

The conversation got even more heated when Vito refused to get involved, and Dave repeatedly asked him why things had gotten confused.

“You’re up against it because you said you have no money, and all I said was, ‘Dear, if you need a hand with land, planting … let me know, then can i help you guide you. ‘ I do not know how it will turn out for me to take over the job! ” said Dave unhappily.

Vito said he was grateful for the guidance, but that was not his problem. Dave did not buy it. “You’ve done one season after Blocks“I’ve done more than ten,” he concluded firmly. “It looks like you’ll not be done anyway!”

Things immediately got even more heated when Vito reiterated that it was not him who had commented on what his landscape gardener was upset about.

“You made me mad, mate,” Dave said, throwing his hands up and walking away. When we heard this, Vito also walked away from his task, furious at Dave’s words, thinking that the experienced veteran had instead asked him to “piss off”. By misunderstanding what had been said, Vito declared that he was done.

“You know your truth,” Tanya reassured him.

“I can’t wait to get out of here,” Vito raged.
