Introducing Annie & Johnny...
Married homeowners and the parents of two very energetic
can you close our bedroom door? The leaking tap in
the kitchen is making that annoying drip, drip noise
and I can’t fall asleep. And while we’re
on the fixing topic, when are you going to close up
the hole that John Jr. made when smashed his fist through
the bathroom door?
Johnny: I told you weeks
ago to call someone and we’ll just pay the guy
to get it done! And while you’re at it, can you
get him to stick those floor tiles in the basement
that I keep tripping over?
Annie: I really don’t
have the time or the energy to find a plumber and a
tiler and a whatever-you-call-it who can fix the hole
in the door. Is a handyman also a plumber? Can the
plumber fix the floor tiles? Will a contractor come
for such small jobs? Maybe I can ask Julie if she knows
1 minute later
…Johnny, on second thought, maybe if we just
close the kitchen door, I won’t hear the tap
dripping and then I won’t have to worry about
it. I really don’t know who to call or who to
trust for all these things.
Johnny: And I’ll
just use that old carpet we have to cover up the tiles
in the basement. I don’t know any tilers – or
anyone else for that matter!
Annie: Good night, Johnny Johnny: Good
