You're one of those guys who has to go into the office after every one is gone, let out an unholy scream, punch the wall, compose yourself, and then your good for a week or two? 😳🤣I'm happy with it. Pretty awesome I was mentally preparing myself for a failed finish and epoxy garage 😆
I got to put the confident builder tone you always have with your clients to the test - " ah yes, Steve (neighbor) is correct we were 2 nights in row - that is to say, last night and the night before. But you can assure Steve we won't be here tonight.... infact I think uh.... we're pretty much wrapped up here now... ah yes, this is quite normal, totally normal, staying overnight and looking like hobos the next morning in a pile of mud also uh, normal.... almost brought the fifth wheel but you know decided to do the barrel fire thing... nice ambiance and uh, my wife said no....
but yeah - Nice slow cure, cant ask for anything better.. just what we were looking for 👍 Tell Steve I can leave these diesel lights and that radio if he and the Mrs want to come use this dance floor - didn't this turn out awesome 👌
Hey - did you see Matt put the fixtures on at the dock? Let's go check that out, it Looks great. Couldn't be happier with this slab..... " 😆
A finished house could be burning down at the last day behind me and I would be same - "yep, you'll get that sometimes on these big jobs. No big deal at all, we plan for every contingency - and can I be honest for a second - that really wasn't the right floor for this house..... why don't you call reene and see if yall can meet up and pick out a better floor - ah, lunch is me and ah, we are all set here I'll get this cleaned up as soon as ah, you know..... it quits ah, burning 🔥 "
Learned a long time ago no matter how ****ed up it is or how angry or upset they are - Always part of the plan, totally in control here we go this.
Then the hat shaking cussing psychotic ranting and impotent rage after they leave 👍
About 18k for the mud, 3500 for pump, should of been 5k for the finishers but double bubble to the 5 who stayed so like 7k - 280 for Fajitas, probably 80 bucks in breakfast tacos between both days, not sure what juan got them for supper last night but probably 150 bucks, I'd imagine I'll have a CC receipt from Juan for a bottle of something - usually a no no but 60 + year old finishers overnight working at 38 degrees that ain't a priority for me lolSo what did that $35k pour cost ya anyway? You have at least a grand in food alone!
Props to your guys. Take care of the men and they'll take care of you.
Minus some more damage to my future ulcers and contributions to my first heart attack that's a pretty good day
Ah, so long as it's not beating you up TOO much! Another day in the life... 😆😆Nah not really I just drink alone on my porch often and mutter
But, then again, it wasn't sooo bad...Plus 20% to the big guy 😆
