The Quarantee

Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with those expensive, double-pane, energy-efficient kind. Yesterday, I got a call from the contractor who installed them. He was complaining that the windows had been installed a whole year ago and I hadn't paid for them yet.

I told him just exactly what his fast-talking sales guy had told ME last year, namely, that in just one year these windows would pay for themselves!
"Hellloooooo!" (I told him). "It's been a year!"

There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally just hung up...he hasn't called back, probably too embarrassed about forgetting the guarantee they made me.

Bet he won't underestimate my intelligence again.
*side note: after visiting facebook, I know that funny is anonymous stories or jokes like the above. Funny is NOT pictures of you doing stupid, regrettable things that would humiliate your family and future children.I especially loathe "friends" who post pictures of their friends making these youthful errors for all the world to see.
End of my soapbox speech for today.

HA HA HA!!! Which is why I haven't posted any pictures of the bouncing water trampoline. (Although I would love to if you give me permission).
