New Windows December 30, 2017

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke.

Last year, I replaced all the windows in my house with those expensive, double-pane, energy efficient kind.

Last week, I got a call from the guy who installed them, complaining that the work had been completed a year ago and I still hadn’t paid for them.

Helloooo – just because I’m a Senior Citizen doesn’t mean that I am mentally challenged.

I told him just what his fast talking sales guy told me last year, “Your guy said these windows would pay for themselves in a year.  Well, it’s been a year, so they’re paid for.”

Hearing only silence at the other end of the line, I hung up.

He hasn’t called back. I bet he felt like an idiot.

Aah . . . that’s better!

I have always been delighted at the prospect of a new [year], a fresh try, one more start, with perhaps a bit of magic waiting somewhere behind the morning. ~ J.B. Priestley

Hope yours gets off to a magical start!

I hope your muse provides endless amusement in 2018!

Very clever, Nancy. I might use this ploy to talk my wife into having those windows installed.

There ya go! Here’s to letting our stuff pay for itself!

I know that what you said sounds like a joke, but I’m wondering. Do you have an invoice, or some kind of receipt, to prove that the work has been paid for? You’ve said that you’re a no longer practicing lawyer. I’m sure you know what the law is concerning these things; and how to avoid being hit with a lawsuit.

Alas, I am in a bit of a jamb . . . and paned to say that the sash received no receipt. Let me mullion it over. 😀

Wonder if this would work on other stuff? 🙂

nrhatch - December 30, 2017

Like exercise equipment!!!

Kate Crimmins - December 30, 2017

or heating systems that would pay for themselves in a year! 🙂

nrhatch - December 30, 2017

That’s the ticket!

You’re a clever one! Thanks for the smile. May humor follow us into the new year – I think we’re going to need it!! 🙂

nrhatch - December 31, 2017

My sense of humor is my MOST important possession . . . when it’s MIA, I’m up $%^&’s creek without a paddle! 😀

🙂 I appreciate it – helps us get through the day, for sure. xo
