MP3 of the Week: "Multiple Estimates" Edition

Funny thing about owning a house and something needing repair.

The first estimate comes in and you think "holy shit. I can't afford this" (*begins drinking heavily*).

Then when another estimate comes in, significantly cheaper than the first, you're more than happy to pay the people. You almost feel like they're paying you. Even though you're still schilling out hundreds or thousands of bucks. But you feel like they are.

We apologize for the recent lack of an mp3. But since there was no outcry from our legions of loyal readers, we didn't feel particularly prodded to recapture its glory immediately.

Well, just remember what Jesus said about home ownership: "The dude don't got no damn head rest, beeatch! -- got no mutherfuckin' slipinside my sleepin' bag!" (John 4:54)

Oh I don't want to give too much away. Let's just say initially, the fire department was involved.
