Teh Squeaky Wheel
“Why yes…pole vaulting over a bull seems like a terrific idea!”
“You know what would make it even better? Wearing a Batman costume.”
Spent much of yesterday straightening out a JimCo pricing clusterfark; embarrassing but (I think) now fixed. A lot of it was due to having to spend so much time dealing with the HH-A HOA at the same time we looked at multiple leaks at other properties.
We told one of them (“Leaky Lane” HOA) nearly six years ago that all of their tile roof sections (and there are 3-4 sections per townhome) were improperly installed but they allegedly haven’t had the money to start addressing them in a cost-effective manner. They’ve had a lot of leaks this winter, which has been very confusing for us, as they were reported piecemeal, typos in addresses / phone numbers furnished to us, etc.
Also been studying the American Arbitration Association’s Construction Arbitration rules, as the first arbitration company we filed with refused our business with bullshit excuses. Thus we have to start the filing process -- which isn’t actually too onerous -- all over.
Also came up with a HUGE obvious question yesterday which has never been asked; Jim’s going to schedule a conference call with lawbaw for later this week.
Good morning, Fatwa, and happy Hoisting Tuesday!
I see you have a busy day planned. I trust you will be reminding all and sundry annoying JimCo “clients”, etc. that this is Hoisting Tuesday and so you are committed to finding someone to hoist today.
You’ve inspired me, Fatwa.
In my spare time I’ve been studying the history of the great Jewish Space Laser.
I believe I have a picture of the first one.
I was taught the first lasers were ruby, making red light. Just another of the Great Libels? Is that text mentioning cobalt for the blue light?
So good to see you, Gentle Mac! As always, you bring the most intriguing points into the open during our discussions here on Teh Wheel
Good catch on the colour of the laser beam. You’re correct in pointing out that most of the first lasers were ruby; but, according to tradition the earliest prototypes for Jewish Space Lasers were made of coherent light waves from the blood of Christian children. After a period of refinement, the lasers that Moses used were from the blood of only the finest, highborn, aristocratic Christian children -- hence, the blue cast to the beam on the Space Laser that Moses actually used that came from the blue blood of those children.
The more you know, eh? I love history. Back to sleep now. Nite-nite! Zzzzzzz……(((poof)))
I KNEW THOSE STORIES WERE TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Miss Harper!
Mrs Sven started watching a reality show hosted by Trace Adkins: The Ultimate Cowboy. It’s typical in that you have a group of contestants facing individual and team challenges and then one is eliminated at the end of the day. The prize is a herd of cattle and some other stuff. Anyhow, she made me watch one episode where the “immunity” challenge was pulling a belt buckle off the head of a bull. The challenge stopped when the bull ran over one contestant and broke his leg.
Good morning, Sven!
Ouch. Playing with a bull until one breaks something. Just ouch.
What do you have planned for today. Sir? Should you have anything that needs hoisting this is the day to do it.
It’s just another work day, Miss Harper -- nothing special.
Hiya, Harper!!1! and Sven!
…and so you are committed to finding someone to hoist today.
My To-Hoist list is already a bit backed-up, what with JimCo customers, politicians, celebrities and random vexatious people. (Yeah…I admit that’s my answer to many of life’s issues; I am but a simple roofer. As such, subtlety and nuance are not in my wheelhouse.)
In my spare time I’ve been studying the history of the great Jewish space lazar.
I wish my peeps were less prone to endless bickering about who and what should be transformed into smoking craters. (But what else should one expect from folks who’ve been arguing with God Himself for more than 5,700 years?)
Happy Hoisting Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Harper, Sven, and Mac!
Busy morning -- my post to Teh Wheel keeps getting interrupted.
A broke-leg cowboy pole vaulting over a raging bull with a kosher laser? Is that the gist of things? That and Fatwa looking for a bigger petard upon which to hoist people.
Hi, Paddy and Mac.
…according to tradition the earliest prototypes for Jewish Space Lasers were made of coherent light waves from the blood of Christian children.
To quote Krusty the Clown, “I think I just seltzered myself.” 🙂 🙂 🙂
