Speaking of pricks...

This week has kind of been hectic.

Our KC friend Andi and her friend Dulaney stayed with us for a couple of days. Andi's going to be moving here at at the beginning of August. We're so excited about having a new friend and fellow KC person here. She's doing the whole improv thing. I can already tell it's going to be a good fit for her, because again, Chicago is awesome and so is Andi.

We've also been stressing over our builders.
DO NOT BUY FROM VENTNER & ASSOCIATES!!!!!!!!! or use Habitat Realty! They are morons, liars, and beyond incompetent from top to bottom.

For the 3rd time, these ass bags came into our home and re-did the hardwood floor coatings without telling us. If you put on a clear coating without us knowing, we're going to step on it and mess it up over and over again. For some reason, they don't get that concept. They came in yesterday and were rude to our guests, didn't even fix all the messed up spots and did a half-assed job of the spots they did touch. Then they said we couldn't go in our bedroom for 24 hours, as they re-did the coating on the floor in the entry to the bedroom. How are we supposed to get clothes for work this morning? These people are morons! They never even finished the bathroom. Besides having no toilet seat or shower door and the wrong cabinets when we moved in, they didn't even install our towel bars or toilet paper holder. Come on... how hard is it to just finish the job, oh and not leave a mess and all your tools hanging out when you're done? So we spent several hours YELLING at them. I mean going off on them, we were serious bad asses. I haven't seen Corey that mad in a long time and I was pretty impressive myself. Seriously, you do not want to mess with us.

So, supposedly today they're doing more work - Not the floors, but at least finishing the bathroom and cleaning up etc. We'll see. I'll get home and either finally be happy or I'll have to pull out another can of whoop ass.

Oh yeah and today is $.49 hamburgers at McDonalds. That'll ensure that at least part of our day will go well.

It's a complaint that I've often heard in the process of building. Do you regret buying the place or will you be happy once the details are done?

We don't regret it at all, especially once we make $$$ on it.
They actually finished everything last night, or at least I think they did. I'll be keeping an eye out over the next couple of days. Now we'll just have to reschedule the flooring when we know about it. Then we'll be happy.
