I greatly appreciate that you offered your able bodied self to help me move some brush out of my backyard at the advice of my realtor. I know you remember how upset I was last year when I paid for a tree to be cut down and realized that I had forgotten to include “and removed” in my discussions with the tree company. I guess I’m inexperienced with these things- I would’ve thought an $800 estimate would’ve included this minute detail. I know you also remember how I helped you move not once but twice…and that said moves included me carrying a lot of your crap out of your old apartment, loaded into a truck, driving truck to new apartment, and carrying your crap into your new apartment. Repeat. With nothing asked in return except for your help when I needed it.
So, I apologize if I reacted a little harshly when, ten minutes before we were to meet at my house, you called to inform me that “so sorry, I’m too hungover.” So, just fyi, I am pleased to report that I managed to haul all the brush to the street by myself (see picture above- it wasn’t that much.) It only took me 4 hours. And my RA…I’m sure my hands will stop hurting soon. And my allergies- no worries- I know my ears and nose will eventually unclog. And the scratches and bruises all over my arms and legs- let’s just call that character building. I’m sure that hauling half as much in half as much time wouldn’t have made a difference at all.
But here’s the kicker- I knew it was a lot of work so I was actually going to give you $60.
So, thank you for my pedicure.
