You know you’ve spent a lot of money on home improvements and/or repairs when your plumber sends you a thank-you gift!
Sure, it’s not the first time we’ve received a gift from a someone we’ve hired. When we installed a new furnace and hot water tank (simultaneously) at our old house, the HVAC guy sent us a company mug with cookies.
Our realtor also had cookies sent to us after we [finally] closed on the new house.
But I definitely wasn’t expecting anything in this morning’s mail. It was a nice surprise for several reasons:
- After paying for the home improvements, there’s not a lot of money left for cookies and other non-essentials.
- I’m glad the plumbers still want our business after the hell we put them through.
- Before receiving that package, I had no idea what to write about today.
Otherwise, a pretty quiet day. After lugging home crushed stone for the edge of our driveway, hubby decided to order takeout for an early dinner. He got his usual cheese pizza, and I opted for the 4-piece fried chicken dinner (no coleslaw, please), which arrived with –
Four pieces of fried chicken. Period. No fries. No nothing else.
The pizzeria owner was apologetic and compensated by providing a triple order of fries. I’ll be eating fries for a week.
Which is not good for my colitis …
Guess we’d better keep that plumber on redial!
Happy Weekend, Everyone.
