Uber Strange Way To Pick A Roofing Company

Yes, another brilliant moment of wordplay meets crazy:

The uber-roofer was giving a bid on a re-roofing job. Everything was going pretty normal--going up the roof, checking the job over, making quick estimation, coming down the ladder to talk to the owner. While this was going on, the owner, a woman, was standing outside and staring up at the roof.

When we got down, the conversation started normally enough, with talk about the age of the roof, blahblah, possible leaks, blahblah. We gave our bid and then when she said she had other roofers coming to look that afternoon, we agreed that yeah, it was always good to have multiple bids to make a big decision like re-roofing.

Suddenly the wind shifted.

"Oh, I don't hire people by their bids," the woman said. She gave us a hard stare. "I check their auras."

I am not kidding. She said "auras."

At this point, Mr. Linguist in my group of learned roofers chimed in excitedly, "Oh, that's okay, you'll like my auras!" At which, he lifted his shirt to show his "auras." "My old lady says they are nice and pink."

His auras are nice and pink.

:::dies laughing:::

I don't think we'll get the job. I've sort of seen Mr. Linguist's auras with the weird prison tattoo above one of them.

Needless to say, I didn't show her my auras either.



Bear with me while I learn. The first button likes the POST. The second button likes the BLOG site. Please help me by "liking" me. Thanks!

Oh, god, I need that. Too funny.

"needed that" even. Sigh.

Trying NOT to laugh hysterically in the office.(*snorts!*)
Mr. Linguist and his auras...what a lovely come-back.
Why bother with a bid? Just do a pirouette and flash your 'auras'. LMAO! "Wanna see my aura?" Hehe
Thanks for that.
And good luck!

"Auras"? Bwahahahaha! I don't know who was funnier, her or his comeback!

BWAHAHAHA!!!!! That's the funniest thing I've heard since the start of 2008.

Yes, been doing a fair bit of traveling but not all of it the fun kind. Right now I'm beat just packing away 8 years of stuff we accumulated here in Perth. Since our home in S'pore is newly-made over, we have to be very careful about what we're shipping back.

I've got stacks of romance I'll be donating to the library. One thing I discovered - I have a lot more tradebacks than I thought. Interesting, too, which author's books I'm giving away. (Like all my J R Ward's BDB and all my JAKs!)
