What Were They Thinking?
Today we came home from work and marveled at the total lack of progress in the remodel. Two guys showed up at 7:30 am this morning to tile. I have no idea how long they were at the house, because I went to work. But they didn't get very much done, and I'm pissed. Not necessarily at the fact that they made so little progress. But that they left the downstairs bathroom floor tile half-done. The owner of the tile install company, Mike, had told me yesterday that if they do the floors in the 2nd and 3rd bathrooms, they would take out the toilet, do the floors, and put the toilet back IN THE SAME DAY. I came home to find the floor only half done, and the toilet still OUT. I was SO upset. What the hell were they thinking??? Not only that, but they haven't even STARTED on the kitchen floor, which they were supposed to do today too. I am complaining big time to Mike tomorrow morning as soon as he gets here. I'm very unhappy. This is the third time I've been this unhappy since the remodeling started. I'm the most upset when people use my bathroom, or when I'm without an extra toilet (like today), or when they disregard our house and make an extra mess. I am really unhappy today. My photo today is of a group lunch we had for our coworker Sue, who is taking advantage of an early retirement program at my work. She has one more week of work and then she will be enjoying the retiree life! I'm so jealous. I've got like, 20 more years to go.
