Sunday slow day. Yesterday was Blizzard day. That's right. They bought a large number of DQ Blizzards in various flavors. Sadly, they were small. I like my Blizzards big. Surprisingly, I only had one. Peanut Butter Cup. Tiny but tasty.
Otherwise the day was simply boring. Until 20 minutes before I was due to leave, then I received a call from a customer who is not satisfied. She is, unfortunately, going to be very disappointed. She wants us to retile her bathroom... with 6 different types of tiles. This includes the floor, the walls, a triangular tub, and a separate shower. She wants a designer bathroom, one with octagonal tiles on a triangular tub. We could do the installation, however, she wants us to provide her with a quote. Unfortunately, the software we use does not let us build design quotes. We install floor tiles, and wall tiles, and tiles in your shower. If she wants a designer bathroom, she's going to have to pay a designer ($$$), who's going to hire a contractor ($$$), who will be able to build her the designer bathroom of her dreams.
A long time ago, my family owned an AKC Irish Setter my mom named Rusty, his AKC name was Sir Rusty of Fairview. Setters have long hair, which clumps up into little ice balls between their toes when they go out in the snow. My mom's solution was to tie white, plastic garbage bags on Rusty's legs. He was quite patient throughout the process.
I agree we have to let things go at their pace, or else one little mistake ruins everything.ReplyDelete
But putting Drunk Uncle Rudy behind bars rather than at bars, would be a nice gesture and send a lovely message.
Lovely message is such a nice way of putting it.Delete
Your mother was priceless!!!!! And the dogs face cracks me up!!!! But hey it worked.ReplyDelete
At one point she had bought small, red boots for his feet. They did not stay on.Delete
Been a few months since I walked into dqReplyDelete
I got a Snickers Blizzard, sadly, it was okay, not what I had been hoping for.Delete
I am pretty sure that the little West Texas town I live in is one of the few places where the DQ went broke and had to shut down. I miss it though.ReplyDelete
I love Irish Setters. While they can be trained and are great dogs they are a breed that seems to never abandon the puppy mind set.
Ours was not good with children.Delete
Ha ha, that puppy looks cute with the plastic bags on his paws. I remember years ago someone telling an older lady where I worked my Saturday job that to keep her feet dry in winter she should wear plastic bags on her feet. Only problem was, she put them on the OUTSIDE of her boots rather than the inside. She was skidding round on the ice like Kristi Yamaguchi!ReplyDelete
He was very patient when it came to dealing with my mom, mostly because she spoiled him terribly.Delete
