I'm back

Well, I will (again) make a concentrated effort to do this more often, as I'm sure there are thousands out there who have been almost catatonic with despair, having not had any new thoughts from me in...oh...about six months. After the threat of eradication from others' blogs (you know who you are), here is my update.

Builders suck! Just wanted to lay that out there. As most of you probably don't know, the flat upstairs from ours had a leaky radiator that caused a 4 foot by 4 foot segment of our roof to collapse. This was about 4 weeks ago. Finally, last week the builders were supposed to come on tuesday and fix the ceiling...AT 7:30 IN THE MORNING!!!!! However, it would be nice to have a lounge again, so I got up and was waiting at 7:30...8:00...8:30...9:30...11:30...finally at 12:30 we finally got in touch with the guy to find out he couldn't come and would reschedule. SO, this morning I am up at 8:00 again waiting for the fella and he finally arrives at 9:30. Now the flat next to ours had the same thing happen to them so the company was going to fix both roofs. However, they decided to have us both up and waiting for them and when they got here, I was told that they weren't going to touch my roof till TOMORROW AT 11:00. So, now I have the blow torch, chain saw, and thumb screws out and feel justified.

I find it funny that being on time is so important in every other area of life, but when it comes to builders, repairmen, etc they do what they want, when they want, and we all accept it.

MONEY MAKING IDEA: Start your own building company, be on time, do the job for what you said you'd do it for, and finish on time. You'll never stop working...EVER!

Ok, that's my diatribe for today. Hope you enjoyed it.

It's a Christmas miracle! Glad to hear from you...now if we can only get Joe to return from the grave everything will be right as rain.
Sorry to hear about your ceiling. But that's what you get for living in a country where everything was built in the Victorian Age. Zing!
I'm proud to live in America where everything is built five minutes ago, and anything even resembling something old will soon be paved over to make way for a Super Walmart.
Well, it serves you right for leaving your country, traitor.
What's a flat? I don't understand?
Who are you again? Just kidding. Good to hear from you. I guess that hole in your ceiling gave a new meaning to singing "O HOLY NIGHT" this holiday season... Get it?... HOLY night and the HOLE in your ceiling... nevermind.
