So, yesterday was the end of my weekend. I was busy.
I had a plumber come and do several fixes. Unbelievably pricey. I don't mind paying for quality work, and let's be honest here, prices are much higher then they were fifteen years ago. While we think we can estimate accurately, we can't. $100 doesn't go as far as it used to go. How do I know this? We have customers who go through the registers and pay with $100 bills. Thirteen years ago, when I began working for the massively large, orange home improvement retailer, you never saw that. Now it happens almost daily.
As for the plumber, he did fine work. He installed a new shower diverter, the old one leaked badly. The shower's upstairs and there's about a 10 degree difference from the ground floor. He was wearing a thick, green sweatshirt. When he told him he didn't need to wear it, he said he had tats and some people didn't like to see them. That made me laugh. "I work at Home Depot," I said, "do you have any idea what I see on a daily basis?" The dogs loved him. They thought I'd given them the best toy ever, and were sorely disappointed when he left.
Besides getting in a bike ride, I also got a number of loads of laundry done. Hay, I even mowed the tall, tall grass I like to call a lawn.
And, of course, everything is blooming. The flowers on this bush are very pretty, but have no perfume.
I agree the Dem message is scattered and it's really not consistent. It happens with so many idealistic people try to compromise.ReplyDelete
And the GQP is crazier every day. Nuts.
I wanna see how they react to the unavoidable scandals that are going to come out of Cheeto's one and a thousand problems.
2020 was the first election in which Bernie Sanders compromised for the betterment of the country. More Progressives need to understand this is how things workDelete
We need people to speak up like Tim Ryan. Take no prisoners.ReplyDelete
His reaction got quite a lot of press!Delete
quality work is worth the price. that's why I LOVE my landscape guy.ReplyDelete
I don't have one of those, but plumbers? I got a good one.Delete
I'm hoping my son can set himself up to work independently (as a plumber) in the not too distant future as finding good plumbers is so hard to do. Trouble is, all the equipment costs a fortune! Love that rose by the way, it's just beautiful!ReplyDelete
I don't know how it is in France, but over here plumbers get paid super well.Delete
Love the rose flower, soo lovely!ReplyDelete
