Fun one, done with tongue in cheek.
Bought a new house mid July, got a great deal but needed to do some updating to it (mid 90’s home, nothing since it has been built was updated).
Fast forward to today, we’re finally done with most of everything, got our punch list going, and are running through it.
A little side note on folks helping me, my father in law, we’ll call him Phil, was a construction superintendent for over 30 years, knows a lot about home construction, but isn’t a great teacher. Expects us to run like a group of subcontractors who know what we’re doing, we don’t. He yells about everything, he’s a great man, but just doesn’t know how to not yell”.
At any rate, he gives my nephew (19 yo) a roll of blue masking tape, and tells him to put a piece of tape where there’s a defect/blemish on the walls. Nephew starts taping up the blemishes, and misses a few spots, Phil starts yelling “you dumbass, I told you to make everything!” .
My nephew says something to the effect that his eyes are no good, but keeps going. After he finished up, he said “I gotta go be somewhere in a half hour”. This was pre arranged, so we knew about it.
An hour later Phil goes to leave, and as he’s walking out we hear him say “that son of a bitch!” And starts laughing. We run over and see this, so we all start laughing and then clean it up.
