Home Repairs
years ago, in excess of 50. my aunts farm was taken by the state for recreational purposes, and she moved to town. she bought a house and had the local handyman do some repairs. he was also the mail man in the town. she asked him to replace the rain gutters and spouts, he replied 'they'll last as longas u live, let someone else replace them, save some money'...all went well for about 20 more years. now after 20 years, the rain spouts and drains leak and she tells the local handyman.aka mailman. they need replacing... she complains '20 years ago when i asked u to replace them your fees were less and material was cheaper, now i have all this expense, u said they'd last as long as i lived'...i remember he stood there spit a stream of tobacco and slowly said 'well mrs beaty no one expected u to live this long'
