I suppose it's still considered social grace's even if it's with the sole intention of getting laid... Everything this guy does is purely motivated by self gain. It's gross. It's embarrassing and it's so over the top...

I once stepped knee deep in a wet foundation in front of about 20 concrete guys that happened to be waiting for the next truck.

In my office clothes.

Re: Name Your Stupid Mistakes


This week's stupid mistake was electing to rock and tape two ceilings in my house myself instead of calling my guy and going to work myself. Figured with home field advantage I could use the no set up or tear down time thing to get it done quicker and ultimately save money.

Well... I'm awful at drywall and I hate it. Should have just paid my way out of this and get the work ball rolling. Whatever, it's done.

Re: Name Your Stupid Mistakes


So your post is stating it was a mistake to hire me.

Because that was my mistake.

And I fixed it, and it looked beautiful. And it was done quite quickly if I remember.
