I think I've figured out "contractor" talk

12:00 NOON means 2-ish. Or there-abouts. And "We are going to put the leftover insulation (2 - yes, *2* - full rolls, plus a lot of pieces) in the attic" from me doesn't mean that YOU get to take them home. Although, that's apparently what he heard me say. :sigh: (WE paid for all the supplies - I have the receipt AND the withdrawal from my checking account to prove it. WE will keep all the scraps and leftovers, thank you very much!) (Besides the insulation, there are 8 sheets of drywall, 2.5 boxes of mud, 3 sheets of 1/2" plywood, and I don't know HOW many drywall screws. What we don't need, we'll take back for a refund - but we've got uses for most of it. Why take it back, only to buy it again later? Especially since prices are going up.)

I'm not going to offer to feed them today. Sorry, but the assumption that THEY get to keep MY stuff rubbed me the wrong way.

Think I'll watch the kids play the Wii...it'll calm me down.
