Oh, Crap! I'm In Big Trouble Now!


Got a knock on my door last night (today is Sunday). Neighbor two houses down needed an electurshun to fix the power to her air conditioner. Walked the half block with tools and meter in hand. Found the issue and solved it.

She couldn't find her checkbook to pay me, so she had cash. Included was this:

Re: Oh, Crap! I'm In Big Trouble Now!


can you fix my electric ?
i got $5 , and there won`t be anything written on it , cept " thanks for coming out a a drop of a hat!! .".


if she really wrote that , she just did you a favor , and let you know the true her .

you can`t go argue with her , but , if you weren`t there , 2 doors down, , she would definitely had to call an electrician
( or electurshun ... you poor illiterate bastard..)

Destitute is spelled wrong.

I don't think his neighbor wrote it.

If she only paid you $5 for that work, then I would consider it charity and not work. You are in good company. Jesus was also chastised for working on the Sabbath.

Um..... that was just one of the bills she handed me.

Truth is, I doubt she even knew it was on there.

Re: Oh, Crap! I'm In Big Trouble Now!


While i generally dont work more than 40 hrs and rarely even a saturday anymore, today is my seventh straight day to be in the office before 6:30 in town. Day starts at 430 except for today, was lazy and got up at 530

I probably will not take a day off this week either. I did take a short break yesterday and had a beer with the client at the brewery in town and I'm headed to town to the gym to do deadlifts and cardio and sit in the sauna for 45 minutes here in a little bit before I head home.

Probably will not take much time off at all between now and our next vacation in three weeks. Got the office building starting, doing some estimating for the new exteriors company, turning over three projects this month is starting three projects. 3 In Design

I'll wait for all of those proclamations on that $5 bill to come true. LOL. I have found the opposite

The Lord helps those who help themselves and make things happen

You worked on a Sunday. The bill says the Sabbath is a Saturday.

I think you're good.

They tend to be self righteous, in the most literal way.

Religious nutters. Like anything, take it to the extreme and it's just weird.
I was getting gas last week and this dude walks up and tries to hand me a four pack of chewing tobacco mumbling something about I need to take this and then give it back to him. Figuring it was some kind of scam, I didn't take it but asked him what he's trying to do. Turns out "his god doesn't allow him to accept anything from a woman" and the female cashier touched it last. "So you're afraid of cooties? Get the **** out of here." Poor shmuck tried with three other people pumping gas (who all said no) before wandering off.
...and no, not some Muslim with a weird version of Islam but a younger white dude with a cross on his neck.
