I love my wife. She is a bright intelligent, well educated woman. Can somebody please tell me then why an automechanic or a contractor can ALWAYS talk her into doing additional work with the line of, “Well if you are doing ____ it only makes sense to _______”
We needed the front stairs repaired. Repaired became replaced. (OK, I can live with that, it did make sense in the long run). But somehow it became, Stairs, Walk Way, Front Sidewalk, and Driveway Apron.
A $500 repair just became a $5000 home improvement.
