Re: Things I Hate


76 degrees and wearing shorts and flip flops on Christmas. Would someone tell Florida to get with the program already?!? It is Christmas, at least a cool breeze or something would be nice.

Contractors who don't show up for estimates. Had a 730 with a tree guy who lives a mile away


Edit. She called an hour later and showed up soon after.
