Contractions

Some suggested questions to ask a contractor before signing anything:

Can you read simple instructions?

Are those real tools in your trailer or are they cardboard cutouts?

Do I get to punch you for not completing a punch list?

When I speak do you hear dolphin-like squeals or actual words?

Does tomorrow ever come for you?

And for extra bonus points, an essay question:

Explain the concept of finite numbers.

ha ha ha! awww.
my cousin redid his apartment in thailand and it took him FIVE YEARS because he had to be his own contractor. so it could kind of be worse. kind of. i mean, talking to construction workers in spanish has to be way easier than talking to them in thai.

Our contractor speaks English just fine but he just doesn't listen very well. And that five years is quite believable to me. I'll be happy if we're finished in one year.
