great entry into the forums man:thumbup:

Hahahaa - that was awesome!
I once had a guy who wanted me to put steel roofing on for him, I was working across the street from his house. When I told him how long it would be before I could get to it, he made the comment that it was easy to do and wouldn't take me that long and would I just come and do it right away. I just looked at him and said, "Well, if it's so easy and quick why don't you get started today, you'll be finished before I'm done with this house." That was the end of that.
Some of the most harebrained schemes start out with the phrase "All you have to do is..."
I also like the ones that go along the lines of "Would it not be easier if you were to do it like this"


Um obviously if it was easier and I could do it, I probably would. The job is hard enough on its own, I dont want to make it and more difficult but thanks for the input.
I like the reponse of "It didn't take that long when they did it on that TV show".
exactly !
