Anticipation.

Ahh yes, home for the day. Iím not sick, Iím not on ďadministrative leaveĒ, and I didnít even take the day off because I wanted to do something. Today Iím home because we are having new windows installed. They are supposed to be here between ten and noon. Well considering itís 20 to noon, they better hurry up and get here.

Now, I have to ask you readers. Am I the only one that gets antsy when Iím given a window for any contractor or serviceman to show up? Around nine this morning I was up and had everything out of the way for the new windows. By 10:30 AM I was wondering where the hell they were. Now Iím starting to wonder if they are ever going to show up. Sure they arenít late, but damn, Iím starting to wonder if I have the wrong day. I donít want to call and seem like a fool, because they arenít technically lateÖ but Iím still wondering.

UPDATE: 12:26 PM: I called the contractor, today is the day they are supposed to be here, they don't know why they are running late. They are going to check and get back with me.


UPDATE: 1:58 PM: The contractor arrived! They were very sincere about being late. They explained that their last job they ran into a problem with one of the large windows they where installing on the second story of a house. Since this is the first time in 5 years I've had a problem with them, I am going to cut them some slack. Plus they are going to fix a problem I'm having with some molding for free.

I also try to make sure everything is ready before the "entry time" of that time window - however it's rare that they get there at the early part of it - or even within the given time window at all, for that matter.

Congrats on the upgrade. Now did they finish the job? This is the question!

I would love 2 hurricane windows in my house... but just can't afford it. Hope your windows worked out well.
