Either in your home, or somewhere out in public, during a shopping trip, or eating out at a restaurant.
Well yesterday, that was us! We had a contractor come to our house to give us an estimate for some work, to see if we wanted to do it ourselves or if it was worth it to have someone else do the job. Here is how this seemingly normal situation played out :)...
First, the contractor got lost, after already being late, called Hubby and had him on the phone giving step-by-step directions for about 20 minutes, until he all but pulled into our driveway. When he arrived, the chit-chatting and talking began :), but he didn't want to talk about the job, at all, until both Hubby and I were in the room, and Hubby was taking BabyBoy potty. So as we stood there waiting, the contractor asked if he could use the restroom because he'd been in the car for so long, no problem, but Hubby and BabyBoy were in the downstairs bathroom, and the contractor couldn't wait, so he asked if he could go upstairs! While going upstairs, the chatting continued, then after he came back downstairs, before he could begin his shpeal, he asked for a glass of ice water because he parched, no problem! He proceeded to ask for three refills and was unable to talk in between sips of water, so we, no joke, I couldn't make this up, had to wait, just standing/sitting there awkwardly, until after he drank each entire glass of water, before he could continue to talk about the job. ha! He chatted and talked about random things for forever, even though we tried to talk about the job :). He finally discussed the work, drew up an estimate, then went outside to make a phone call home, came back in, and as we were finishing up, he asked if we had any ibuprofen because he was starting to get a headache, and of course we kindly obliged!
We couldn't help from smiling at different points at the amount of time he was here (and talking :)), because one thing right after another, it kept getting more silly. When he went outside to make his phone call, we couldn't help but laugh, and I said to Hubby, we have to be on Candid Camera! :)
Have you ever felt like you've been on a hidden camera show??
