Just One Man

My friend wondered why her house remodel was taking so incredibly long to complete.  It was driving her crazy and a constant complaint in every conversation we had.  Months passed before her new roof and aluminium siding were fully installed.


Yes, I bite my tongue.   (No small feat.)

Suzy said...

oh lol no wonder. I'm not sure I could've bitten mine. Thanks for visiting my blog.

Christine said...

Lol!

DJan said...

Well, I figure that he wasn't that slow if that sign is true. Made me smile. :-)

Davine said...

Ha Ha no wonder it took so long. Love it.

Jeanie said...

Well, that's pretty cool. He should have put the sign up before, though!

Brian Miller said...

hahaha yeah, that might take a while with just one man and his hammer working...smiles....

Tom Sightings said...

Hah ... it takes all kinds! (I was on the fence abt. Mitty; but now I'm going to see it.)

Tammy said...

oh my, you maybe should have said something. One man is okay, but a CREW is far better and quicker. Yikes, I hate home construction so the quicker its done the better for my nerves. Hugs!!

Jeannie Marie said...

For all those in the neighborhood that watched it take so long, it's good to know who not to call. Saw you at Sundays in my City

Does he add "no job is too long to complete"? You can too many working on something too. I suspect the better number is at least two or three.

Okay, I love that sign -- it would be perfect if there was fine print on the sign that stated "will take a really long time because there is only one person doing the work - so whatever you're imagining multiply it by 5 and that is how many months it's going to take me.

What's that idiom... You get what you pay for?

I hope the end result was good. I could feel her pain though. :)

At least the man was working and not on unemployment. Any consolation there? :)

Yeah, you can't make that stuff up;)

Ms Sparrow said...

Taking pride in not having anyone to help you isn't always a great business model!

Terra said...

Clever sign.

Sweet Tea said...

Sometimes it's so darn hard to see the obvious.

Willoughby said...

Love it! I wonder if this guy has a brother in Michigan? We hired a guy to hall away some junk from our garage. His business was called "One Man and a Van"!

Cindy L said...

Too funny! Thanks for the smiles on an incredibly cold day in Michigan!

diane said...

Before I put my glasses on I thought the sign said "One Man and a Herring".

Hilary said...

Ha.. but I can commiserate with her. We've been undergoing renovations since August. I'm so done.. they're so not.

Lilly said...

That is hilarious, very funny.

Suldog said...

What's the old saying? If a man only has a hammer, everything looks like a nail? Something like that...
