I don't know who the "I'm a trooper for real" person is, but I'm the real Gary Smith that this incident actually happened to. I have read the posts that others have made about recovery agents in general. I'm just a guy with a wife, son, and dogs; just trying to make a living like everyone else in this world. I have been a recovery agent for over 25 years. I'm not some young kid out here trying to intimidate people into giving up their vehicles or being some disrespectful A-hole. I sympathize with anyone who has ever had their vehicle repossessed, but I do have a job to do. Most people are actually decent when I have to make them a visit, and others act like Mr Spivey did. You just never know what situation awaits you the moment you pull on to someone's property. I go to the address that is on the repossession order to try and obtain the property that the bank has listed, not to mess up someone's yard or steal something that doesn't belong to the bank, as one poster had mentioned. I'm not some sorry, uneducated SOB that deserved to be shot at, nobody deserves that. I'm just happy that I was able to go home that day and be with my family. So, to anyone out there just trying to make a decent living, stay safe, cause it's a cruel world we live in.
