Sometimes people we respect say things that are ridiculous and it’s almost impossible to not make fun of them for saying something silly. I had a moment like this yesterday while talking with a contractor I respect and frequently call to answer technical questions that come up. We were on the phone and I was trying to navigate him through the project to where we wanted to install a wall outlet.
Bob: Are you standing in the Dining Room?
Bob: Okay. Walk through the sliding doors and move out on to the covered patio.
Contractor: Okay. I’m there.
Bob: Rotate 180 degrees.
Contractor: Rotate 180 degrees to the right or to the left?
There are times when I am extremely grateful that the contractors I work with don’t have blogs.
