Overheard

After dropping the kids at school, I decided to swing by my neighbors. Mostly, because I'm considered the Mayor of our little community by some. More specifically my husband. I thought it would be a good idea to keep up my PR for the next election. Also, to see how they were making out with the remodeling of their kitchen.

I step inside to find an almost completely gutted kitchen, and my neighbor, lets just call her Mrs. O. to protect the innocent, looking beside herself. While the two workers, lets call them Clyde and Homer to protect the moronic, were busy looking busy. Clyde was holding the wall up or was it the other way around? While Homer was rattling around under the sink in the one cabinet that was left. Mrs. O. wandered off into the livingroom that is just a doorway away from the kitchen and I became side tracked with snack bag of cookies.

Clyde, who appeared to the brains of the operation yells into Mrs. O. "Are you going to be using this sink again?" I pull my nose out of the cookie bag, look at him and think, "WHAT?" Mrs. O. replies "oh, yes sir, my sink will be going back there in front of the window." Me, just because I can't keep my mouth shut say, "No, he wants to know if you are going to use this same sink?" She tells him, "no, no I have a new one ordered that will be going there."

I thinking, "of COURSE you do." That freakin' sink along with everything in this kitchen is over 30 years old. You are having all of the cabinets custom built, granite counter tops, brand new hard wood flooring, lighting and top of the line appliances going in. So, yes Clyde, lets go ahead and just put that same 30 year old sink BACK in. I think it may just set off the granite. UGH!

Meet Clyde


Whatcha think 'bout havin Clyde cum do sum work at yer house?

I'm pretty sure he's the maintenance guy the owner of my townhouse pays to continually "fix" my dishwasher. He's only been here 5 times!

I'm kinda concerned that Clyde is yelling INTO Mrs. O.

I would have gone with "Frick" and "Frack" as names.
