Before you think I have some major revelation
I am just telling you one incident.
I have had lots,
but this one could have had some scary consequences.
My MIL has been wanting new carpet for her bathroom.
She has been "wanting" it for awhile.
Hers was "powdery."
Having lived in a house where the carpet was burned
in the living room
from where the previous owner
had started his Harley,
(another story, another time )
I wasn't totally sympathetic
Plus, it's a tiny little bathroom
I could not imagine what they would charge to
come out here in the sticks
to do a tiny, little,
JWS and I tried to talk her into tile.
We lay tile,
we have all the tools,
can be easily cleaned off of tiles.
You would have thought that we suggested
making the floor
bed of nails
There is no other way to describe it.
I have done it myself,
just not for
Mine has been saved for the big ones...
The brakes on my car are spongy....
The toilet is not flushing right..
There is a terrible smell in the basement...
the big ones.
she finally called the carpet people
yesterday they came out and ripped up the carpet.
She was at dialysis.
The carpet guy came to the shop
fifteen minutes later.
The floor around the commode was bad
and he could not lay the carpet.
He left and
Jenn and I raced up to see the issue
The commode was ready to drop through the floor!
there was a huge hole the whole way around the commode.
We shook it and it moved a good
4 - 5 inches.
She was one small little case of irregularity
So, while it is good that she nagged about the carpet...
did she not think
I got two special orders done last night.
Sure love getting things off the list.
Can't show them
until the people get them.
They are personalized.
