And you thought only newscasters did it
The general contractor and his subs have done a great job. The other day, a sub worked in the rain to make sure that we weren’t getting too far off schedule due to lousy weather. Also, they have been very respectful – meaning that they clean up when they are done for the day and they don’t come too early. May seem like little things but those are the types of issues that neighbors complain about to the township.
Here’s the interesting part. I get up between 5 and 6 every morning. My husband awakens between 7 and 8 AM every morning. The GC arrives between 7 and 8 AM every morning. One morning, my husband woke up and decided that he would smoke in the new addition (it doesn’t have drywall and plumbing yet, so he figures it doesn’t break the “no smoking in the house” rule.) So he throws on a flannel shirt and a pair of undies, then heads to the addition.
"Scott,” comes a male voice.
My husband looks around the addition, in a slight panic due to his outfit status. He stands there, cigarette partially dangling from his lips, searching the room for the voice’s owner.
“Scott,” he hears again.
Scott turns and looks out the front window frame (windows aren’t in yet) to find our GC standing below.
“I had a couple of questions for you … “
At this point, my husband realizes, he can’t see what I have on below my waist.
They continue the conversation, the entire time Scott prays that our GC will not decide to join him in the addition nor climb a ladder that is lying against the house's exterior.
“I’m done my cigarette. I’ll be down in a second.” Scott rushes to the bedroom, throws on a pair of shorts, and joins our GC in front of the house.
And you thought only newscasters were clothed from the waist up.
