Teh Squeaky Wheel
Har! Good one, Mac!
Greetings from the Great Frozen South, GN!
Current Larryville temperature: 28ºF with two more sub-freezing nights to come. Oh well, at least it’s going to be sunny and dry the next two days so no ice.
Submitted a repair bid yesterday for a house with a large, expensive tile roof in Calabasas which has two leaks. The owner -- some arrogant asshole with an Iranian name -- responded by playing the Rug Merchant Game:
I can replace the roof for that price?
Jim did not even look at the roof to make such an expensive estimate.
Jim actually saw the leaks from inside and didn’t have to go on the roof (covered with rather pricey, easily-broken tiles) in order to diagnose the problems and determine the scope-of-work.
Always hilarious when some pinhead with a $2M+, 4200 square foot house squawks that something’s too expensive when they have no clue what things like, oh, say conspicuously-fancy tile roof repairs, actually cost.
Quoth Jim after seeing the guy’s email, “Oh, fuck him.”
I told Jim if he wanted to play this stupid middle-eastern game, a good response would be to accuse the guy of wanting to take the bread from the mouths of Jim’s children and grandchildren. 👿
Happy Tuesday, GN! Good morning, Fatwa!
Happy Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Fatwa -- I love your proposed response to that Persian prick.
Gotta know your “audience”. 😉
Rain rolling in -- should hit Paddy early morning.
Ow! Quit it!
Now, if only we had some way to trap all of this rain…
‘Woman of the year’ Kathy Griffin says she won’t support ‘another old, white guy’ in 2020
Unless that’s all the Dems have to offer, then she’ll put aside her “principles”.
“Woman of the Year” -- if we didn’t have low standards we wouldn’t have any at all anymore.
Didn’t that Jenner guy win that not long ago. She is in good company I guess. What a vile hag. Hillary MUST have won that sometime didn’t she?
Every year, Mac, except for that time the Russians rigged it and gave it to Natasha Fatale.
I blame moose and skwirel.
Lightning! Thunder! Rain! Wind!
