i loathe the question "how'd it go today"
Sort of depends on who's asking and what they expect as a response, I think. My wife like's to ask, "so how was your day?" And I say something like "fine" or "it was ok" but apparently that's not enough. It means that I don't want to "communicate." And I'm like, what do you want me to do? Review the entire day? Give the play by play? I showed up. It was a total sh** show. The drywallers weren't, in fact, finished even while I was told they would be. The electricians cut another damned hole in the wall. The plumbers had one in the ceiling. The furniture showed up early with no place to put it so I had to vacate my whole staging area so there was someplace to stick the furniture. So then I became "homeless" at the site and couldn't really do much work anyway...So yeah. I think I don't like the old "how'd it go" question either. I'm not a recount it play-by-play guy and I don't even know if that's the question - at least if it's my wife asking.Well, now you have me wondering.
And I hate when small reno work gets done where I'm supposed to try to patch in / touch up without an entire repaint and NO ONE thinks to themselves - "hey maybe we should save a scrap for the painter to get a color match." And I hate it more because if I've said it once, I've said it 100 times: "save me a damned something for a color match!"
