So, I'm about thisclose to having a total panic freakout with this house business. First the roof, which incidentally is being fixed as I type, had to be replaced and now I'm trying to get someone to help us out with tuckpointing but am being told that I have to do the ENTIRE HOUSE. Look Mr. Tuckpointer, I'm sure you want a nice big job but do the words SPOT TUCK POINT mean anything to you?? That's what I want done and I don't need a job that will "last into the next century" because I don't care about the next century. I care about today and having you fix my goddamn brick so I can pass inspection. Also sir, I know what a parapet is and just because I am a lady doesn't mean I am dumb so don't talk down to me. That is all.
I have one word for what I need today and it rhymes with martini.
