Ok… Granted I live in Texarkana. And usually that would be “nuff said”. But oh no. Not this time. These guys show up and they do seem sort of nice. They didn’t do anything flat out rude. Other than making a TON of effing noise AFTER I put the baby to sleep for a nap but were as quiet as church mice prior to that. But other than that, they were nice. But some of the conversations were so funny, I literally had to hold my hand over my mouth to muffle the giggles.
First off, I made them open the doors and windows cause they were pouring this stuff on the ground to glue the pad down and it smelled SOOO bad. So here is how that went:
Me: what is that smell??
Carpet Dude: oh that there is the glue fer yer pad
Me: Well is it toxic? It smells really, really bad! And I have a baby in here.
Me: Does it say on the can that it is toxic?
CD: (looking at the can) uhhh
Me: Here, can I look?
CD: (handing it over with relief) oh kay..
Me: See, it says right here that it is Highly Flammable and should be used in a well ventilated area (pointing to the can)
CD: Well… I been usin’ it fer years and I ain’t had no problems.
Me: Open all the windows and doors. Kay thanks.
Then I started to notice that the older guy must be the Boss Carpet Guy because he is bossing the younger carpet guy around while hovering over him and pointing. So for the sake of argument, we will call the other guy Grunt Carpet Dude.
The funny part is that every time Boss Carpet Guy goes out front to SMOKE A CIGARETTE (omgIhadtoholdmyselfbackonthatone) the Grunt Carpet Dude mutters under his breath something about how nice it would be if he could take a break like the “old fucker” and smoke a cigarette even though they are making the same money. Since I was hiding in my bedroom the entire time and they didn’t know I could hear their EVERY word on the baby monitor. I didn’t say anything about it. He was clearly trying to say it to himself and get out some pent up frustration. Not to mention I thought it was heeeeelarious. And then as soon as SMELLY Boss Carpet Guy struts back in (complete with nasty, stinky green cloud following him) the Grunt Carpet Dude is like his best friend again. It was PRICELESS!
Then randomly I hear Boss Carpet Guy tell Grunt Carpet Dude… “No wonder California is goin’ broke! It’s cause of people like that there OCTO-Momma.”
To that I have nothing! Lol
