Just joking to you guys from New England
This Old House rules. One of those dudes is on "Renovation Nation" now. They got all kinds of cutting edge stuff goin' on there, none of which I could ever afford

Every other word from each of them was "FARKIN BUSTARD"

At lunch they would sit well apart from each other - the son not adding anything to any conversation.

The rest of us were seriously scared that they would come to blows.

Can any of us imagine working day in and day out in that environment ?
I am just glad my plasterer hubby gets all the abuse out at work and is nice as can be at home. (As for the colorful vocabulary, that seems to be written in the plasterer's bylaws).

The plasterers around here have the real nasal midwestern accent.

I won't mention the This Old House reruns. He (hubby) is not allowed to watch those when they are showing plasterers, in case I end up with a hauk and trowel embedded in the TV.
