Geesh. Some people are SO prickly to work with.
My Captain had reached the part of his walk-out basement/brick patio project where he could actually start laying the brick. It is not a job that many people can do together, as it starts in a small space and goes out very specifically from there. So in the beginning, all I could do was wait and watch as he got started. Now see, this is how you do it:
You get a couple of rods to use as depth measures.
You get yourself two tons of sand and move it, using your incredibly delicious biceps and forearms.
Yeah, just like that.
You spread it evenly.
And then you lay the first brick and your wife makes it a big deal and adds much pomp and ceremony to it.
And then you lay the second and third bricks, and your wife makes it a big deal and adds much pomp and ceremony.
And then you lay a bunch more bricks, and your wife makes it a big deal….you get the drift.
And then your family stops by and tells you what you’re doing wrong, which you REALLY like a whole lot.
And then you throw everything down in a huff because your wife isn’t really lightening the work load as you had hoped, even though she is entertaining herself immensely.
Don’t you just love family projects?
