  • TIP For The Day...

    "DO NOT look up - when I'm moving the ceiling tiles around."

    I tell the clients that 'til I'm blue in the face; and they still think there's something to see above the ceiling grid.
    Hey, if your nose wasn't up in here while we're throwing this thing together, there's nothing new to see there.
    Sit down out of the way, or just take a break and I'll be done shortly. I wish I could say that to them, as they watch you climb the ladder with a look of wonderment like that of a six-year-old.
    I don't even look up as I'm shuffling tiles around, and it never fails, to see them rubbing their eyes.
    Big brother doesn't have audio/video stuff up in here (not that you'd know it anyway) to listen to you or to watch you. Sorry, but you're not THAT important enough to spy on.


    I guess I'm done venting, just like watching the solar eclipse, don't look up when they're messin' around in the ceiling.

        You know, it's kind of like the topless dancer telling you to not peek while you're waiting in her dressing room for her to get ready for your date at the gentlemen's club. (How would I know?)

        You're told not to, so, by all means, that means you must look.

        Sorry BadgerDave,
        I'm not Paul Harvey, I'm takin the 5th on the rest of the story.

            Read the TOTD, that says it all.

            People pretty much don't follow any instructions. Regardless of gender, education, age, income etc.

            Hey stupid,
            It's asbestos, wear your mask.

            It's NOT asbestos, it's an alergy. Hmmmmm, where'd all this cat hair come from?

            Yeah, right...

            or

            It's a YAG laser, your sunglasses aren't enough; how many fingers am I holding up?

            But, they're a shade 5, dude.

            That's the point! You are asking a wooden match to be the microwave! Or, lets say you're running the x-ray machine with an aluminum shield.

            Oh that reminds me, I stuck some leftovers in the micro and forgot the aluminum foil on it, an nothing happened.

            People just don't get it. And, I don't feel like being the maestro.
