Too Soon

I spoke too soon yesterday.

I should have known better.
I got home a little after 4pm and the roof wasn't even half way done.

It was all torn off but not too much was put back on.

They were there since 6:50am.

What in the hell were they doing all day.

Yes it was hot. Yes they needed to take breaks. But it looked like they were mostly standing around.

They got more shingles up after we were home than before. It was so hot yesterday that you would think they would have wanted to get it done so that they could get out of the heat.

There was one guy you reminded me of Jar Jar Binks.
He just kept walking around doing nothing but driving me crazy.

We now have no gutters on our house but the shingles are done on the house itself. They need to come back today to put on the gutters and put the shingles on the garage.
All I have to say is that they damn well better get those gutters on my house so that my basement doesn't flood from water coming through the walls since we are supposed to get major storms later today. They better be on first thing this morning. They better be doing it right now.
They better.....

Can relate.

By the time my hired drywaller was done, I felt like a stalker:

"Why aren't you here"?
"Where are you"?
"You told me you'd call"?

although work needs to be done on a house I hate having people/workmen around when I am home. Hate it. Hate it. Hate it. I just want it done and then be gone.
