Ode to the F-Bomb

Wifey called.
"Are you sitting down?"
"Yes, why?"
"I talked to Buck."
"What the *&^% happened???"
"Well, apparently the heat clicked on last night, steam came rushing out of the radiator pipes, and since the radiators are all sitting in the kitchen, the moisture damaged the floors."
"W H A T ?"
"Wait ... there's more. Your ceilings..."
"Don't even tell me they *&^%ed up my ceilings. I'll kill them. Seriously. My ceilings?"
"Yeah, the living room ceiling fell down, and smaller sections in other rooms fell down too."
"What the *&^% does 'fell down' mean? What the *&^% is wrong with these people? How can you *&^% up the ceilings while refinishing the *&^%ing floors? I'm Gonna Kill Buck."
. etc .

Oh you poor thing! That sounds really, really horrible. Does the buck stop with Buck, and have you torn him a new one?

Thorny said...

Oh NO!

I read this on Bloglines, and at first thought, "Oh please, let this just be a terrible nightmare Lefty's had."

And then I came here to comment and saw the pictures.

I'm so sorry. Just... how terrible.

Ack! Fuck is right! I've been following your house saga and have been so impressed and it has induced home-owner's fever in me.
I'm so sorry!
Hang in there and happy Thanksgiving.

Linda said...

Shriek! I'm so sorry. Your photos were painful to see.

oh the joys and the pains of home improvement. I am so sorry that is awful

Kathy said...

Crap. I'm sorry. DH had to replace so many of our ceilings in our current house (new blue board and plaster and paint). A few of the rooms had ceiling tiles that decided to let go all at once! My sympathies.

Alex said...

Oh, how awful! Much sympathy, and good luck honing your killer ninja sword-fighting skills...

Kellee said...

Holy crap! I can't even begin to imagine. Can we do anything to help? Anything at all?

Please tell me you're going to be able to make them fix the ceilings?

Becca said...

Oh, I feel your pain. I hope you have Buck by the short 'n' curlies right now.

Kat with a K said...

Oh God. Oh, no. Can I help? Need more brownies? Something?

Rhonda said...

OMG!

Danielle said...

Words (other than fuck) escape me at the moment. And you know how hard that is for me!

Let me know if my ceiling sanding skills (and pop's ladder) can be of service...

Kat said...

That just sucks.

Ashley said...

oh bugger. Just...no. I hope you're recovering.
