Got to have a nice 45min conversation with MIL. I did apologize, but she acknowledged that while what I said was said very blunt, she needed to hear it. She has agreed to let Wifey and I take over the reno process. She just wants to be kept abreast of what's going on, but we're decision making now. Finally.

Operation Lunch Ride: Success

YOU CAN DO IT!!! Easier than plumbing.*

*this from a guy who won't do yard maintenance.
I'm kinda mostly not afraid, but also the electrical is the only thing in Operation: Bong Shed that I'll need to get a permit for. And since it'll be my office, I'll want to heat it in the winter and cool it in the summer, and I'll be powering all my electronical whatnottery for mah jerrrbs, I'd just as soon* have someone who really knows what they're doing do it so as to minimize the likelihood that I'll die in a Bong Shed fire.

I don't know what would be more depressing, being in Indiana and going to Michigan or getting out of Michigan to end up in Indiana.
Yes.







*TIL what an eggcorn is.
 
Huh, always seemed like a cheery bunch to me.

:rofl:

I find the best way to get along with them is to find a topic you are both passionate in complaining about.
I found the best way to get along with machinists was to ask them to teach me their art, to which they responded with instruction ("You will notice that at no time do my fingers leave my hands.") and friendship.

And to sweeping up all your chips/cleaning the machine. I'm not sure I've run into a group of people more anal about cleaning up after oneself.

Learned that one the hard way.

There will be no more dying here. Thanks... Operation Bongshed must be a success.

I hate machinists. That is all.
I hate Wallpaperists. Or whatever they are called. With the option of paint. You somehow chose wall paper. Fuck you idiot... You didn't even line up the pattern asshole. If anyone ever says hey lets wall paper the bathroom and the kitchen. Stand tall and say no. Trust me on this...

You’re not a decorator if you can’t line up the pattern. Holy shit that’s just pathetic. I can even line up the pattern.

I am sorry. It was just a offhand comment about wall paper. I did not realize you're a Wallpaperist. I mean no offense... Excuse me please...
