Fatwa Arbuckle: Misanthropologist

Friday…hooray!

Another day of my inbox being flooded by -- and seemingly-incessant phone calls from -- people who would not be in a pickle if they’d listened to and/or had a bit of trust in JimCo over the last year or two.

Also, condo owners who don’t have a clue about how their Homeowners’ Associations do things.

“No…we can’t just fix it; the work has to be approved first. And since that’s not up to JimCo, your repeated calls to me don’t accomplish anything except interrupting me while I’m trying to prepare a proposal to repair your leak.

What I wonder is what kind of “amusement park” they could have in Iran?

I can tell already the corner of my brain that’s filled with sewage, expired pork products, rats, natto and cobwebs will be grinding on attractions for this all day.

“Back To The Seventh Century”
“Pirates Of The Barbary Coast”
“The Hall Of Presidents We Hate”
“Muhammed’s Enchanted Djinn Room”
“It’s A Cruel World”
“Mad Cous-Cous Party”
“Mr. Atta’s Wild Ride”

And of course, a Goat Coaster:

Oh, Fatwa, I am but an egg when it comes to the wild imaginings such a broad jest affords.
You are teh master!

Still, in the spirit of all joining in I humbly offer the old classic sideshow game…

Whack-a-jew

Harper!!1!

I hope this morning finds you well.

It’s been lovely to see you and dv8 ’round here; iz very nice. 😉

And I wish I’d thought of “Whack-A-Jew”; kindly do not underestimate your own Snark Quotient, madam.

You are teh master!

Thank you bunches, but rectitude requires me to unequivocally state that -- compared with Papa Arbuckle -- I, too, am but an egg. (He was brilliantly tasteless…among many other sterling qualities.)

This just came my way:

Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Harper!!!11!!!eleventy!!

Fatwa -- too bad you can’t ask all those condo owners to send you a cash deposit, to hold their place in line.

Hi, Paddy!

Yup.

Cash is wonderfully, ah, fungible. 👿

Alas, we are, of course, hired by their HOAs; often through a management company. (In 27 years, I’ve only dealt with one HOA where owners are responsible for their own roofs.)

Heeee!!

‘Splode ‘Ems?

Islamobiles?

Volkswagen Jeddas?

(I still find those fun; how can you not like a ride where the goal is to deliberately crash into other folks?)

Well I want to switch to a day schedule (I seem to be able to flip my schedule these days, pretty easily) so Harper and I are going to sleep early.

Night night, Gerbils.

Fatwa: Hope you find that software useful/interesting.
