Keep Your Friends Close But---


"Keep your friends close but keep your customers closer ".

this may sound insignificant but if you follow that quote you will succeed in life. i do many roofing jobs and have many happy customers. hammers and nails may build the house but logic catches the mouse.

I got so excited to see davinci had started a new thread, I almost pee'd myself. But I must say it was a bit of a let down.

See, I'm starting to wonder if was in fact a "worker" who schlepped a hooker in the van, beat up a client's kid, and spends inordinate amounts of time crawling through the lawn, staring at his hammer.

Maybe it was DaVinci all this time.



And maybe, just maybe, DaVinci is on drugs.







This is getting weirder than reading OpieTheTileman posts.
