things NOT to say to the workmen…

Well, we’ve had people working at the barn for quite a while now.  The weather has kept them away and so it is time to pull up our tool belts and get this show on the road.

So if you have a “project” and hire men to work for you……here’s what NOT to say:

“Well, just get to it whenever you can”

“Just take my credit card”

“Oh, I guess you can leave it right there…”

“I don’t care how much it costs.”

“I don’t care how long it takes”

“Just go ahead and do it, we’ll figure out how much it costs later.”

“Why don’t you make a list?  Then you wouldn’t have to drive to the store so often”

“I guess I don’t really need to see a copy of your insurance, as long as you have it.”

“Is there supposed to be a hole there?”

“Why do you want to know if that vase is antique?”

“Can I trust you?”
