File this one under "watch how you say and what you say" department.
I had just finished straightening up a bill dispute with our cell phone provider, and, still feeling a little punchy, called Hubbs to share the news.
"We're DONE!" i said (perhaps a bit too forcefully)
"Pardon me?" (said by Hubbs, in a questioning tone)
"We're done...DONE! Finished!"
A pause, then Hubbs said...
"Get a grip, it's only a phone bill."
Once again - it's not what you say, but how you say it.
In other news....
got the car back today...$1800 later and it runs like a dream. And for $1800, it bloody well better.
So, it's back to work tomorrow. Unfortunately.
May the rest of your week run as smoothly as my car.
