Home Improvement Project

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179



You know those products that say you just spray it on your house and WALAH!!!  Like magic your siding is sparkling clean and looks like new.  SCAM!!! Charlatans!!!  By the time we got through today we looked like we’d been on the giant water slide at Six Flags and didn’t have nearly as much fun.  We were ready to file for divorce and just burn the house down and forget the whole thing.  Next year…we’re hiring a guy with a pressure washer, save ourselves a lot of money; we’re going to need for home improvement therapy…

Come on James.  You mean the ads were misleading?  Wow!  At least you have a wash and wear hair do.

So much for Walah and therapy can be quite expensive.

That is so funny. My husband always wants to do projects around the house. I always hire out. The few times he has talked me into it the same things happened. Too much time, money and not a great job done in the end. Even divorce discussions. Easy to happen when someone gets you into something that is not fun at all. Easier to make the phone call and leave for a day at the beach!

Diane summed it up very well. Sometimes even the trivial tasks are best left to those who make a living doing it! Enjoy your day!

Hello James,

Kinda like "buy one and we'll send you a second bottle free".

Most of this stuff is junk.

Lesson learned my friend.

Have a good day, Clint Mckie
