Some one has just dropped in on us, and we are divided as to what to do about it?

Contractor to homeowner.

Remember when you said you'd be interested in skylights if the price came down?

Well it came down alright.

Sorry Honey, partly my fault. The kids kept fighting about the other not keeping to their own side of their bedroom. When I told them to split it down the middle, I thought they would tape a line on the floor or hang a curtain...

Contractor: Hello, This is Acme roofing company. We will still honor our reroofing contract but you now need more than just a roof.

Owner: !$%^@%

Contractor: Calm down sir. I don't think you will have to pay us anything in addition but you have to come home and see this.
