Making sure the guy working on your home is happy is a great step toward living in a place that’s comfortable. If you don’t, he might make your basement look like a seventies romp room. From the shag carpeting to the chintzy wood paneling to the hanging lamps that bury the corners in shadows. You don’t want that. Nobody wants that.
General contractors often work out of their phones, so they do lots of messaging. If one of them has been working in the industry for long enough, they’ve probably gotten lots of these messages. They know how to handle them.
Yeah, I Know. You're Right There
It's certainly never happened to any of us (and certainly not because of a bad incident at the church potluck), but being brought in to talk to the police is a daunting event. Even if you've done nothing wrong, you can't help but feel you're going to be fingered for a crime.
You might feel tempted to reveal everything you've done, from stealing a piece of gum to walking a red light. Accidentally texting the detective you're about to talk to won't make anything better, but the story goes on to say it was fine. The detective even joked about it.
Text Messages From the Grave
This person seemed to have his or her head screwed on properly by warning everyone about the change in number, but there was one person forgotten. Sending a text message to yourself, while not the incorrect person, can create some funny moments anyway. And it's great for making sure you remember certain things.
Of course, you should also make sure that the contact info in your phone is correct, or you might think you're talking to dear old departed Granddad. It might be a good time to think about the relationship you had with him, but otherwise, it's just unnecessary fear.
No, Really, There's a Perfectly Good Explanation
If they're excited about their growing family, some ladies will love to share their growing bellies with family and friends. If those family and friends are people who like to tease, they'll send something back like a picture of themselves sticking their stomachs out. As long as they don't send that picture to the wrong person, there should be no problem.
Darn it, you had one job! Would it be better if the person that sent the picture back is a guy or a gal? Either one is a possible option. We'd love to know who the wrong person was. Boss? Another family member? A friend that they hadn't spoken to in a decade? The choices are endless.
All of Them? Like, Everyone?
Good thing you let them know. We kind of want to know what kind of responses this guy got. Was there advice for picking the best chicken? Other options for dinner? Locations that would yield better choices for rotisserie chickens? We don't know, and we might never find out.
The fact that the text has no information about why this guy was looking at chickens is also funny since the co-workers might think he was looking at actual chickens. Like, at a farm.
