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.)

  8. 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!!

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  18. 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? :)

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

  22. 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"!

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

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

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

  26. That is hilarious, very funny.

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