Yesterday, I stopped at the store to get more adhesive to finish installing the hardwood floor in my library. While the clerk rang up the sale, the other guy at the counter explained how to keep the glue from hardening while I worked.
“Just have him place a sheet of plastic over the top when he’s not spreading it on the floor . . .”
I looked around for the “he” in question. I thought maybe my five gallons of adhesive came with a free man or something (it would explain the price), but no such luck. The guy’s assumption that “some guy” would be doing the installation had me mentally shaking my head.
I think I need a little Random Word Improv to wipe the incident from my mind.
Care to join me?
