So this guy came in this morning and asked if we maintained trailers. He wanted new lights, wires, bunks, bearing grease, and etc.
I told him we probably shouldn't as we were busy and the only guy I had available who knew how to do all the work fixes breaks.

The customer said he really wanted it done and would gladly pay for the guy all day so despite my concerns we let our guy work on the trailer.

So, around 5 pm the customer comes on and doesn't want to pay for the guy's day.

I pointed out he had put on all the new stuff exactly as requested.

The customer stood there looked straight at me and hollered about all the smashed lenses and the crunched bunk boards.

I told him, between irate screams, " Everything is exactly as I suggested it would be and you said you wanted to hire our guy and pay him for the day."

Still no offer to pay.

"Look man! I told you he fixes breaks and that is exactly what he did!!!"

Then there was the sailmaker who came by the yacht club, repaired a few spinnakers , got out a machine gun, leveled half the members, and departed.

The headline in the paper was: Local Man Sews Shoots and Leaves

I knew a guy who built hotel furniture from that fancy plastic substitute stuff.
He would give plastic benches and chairs to hotel managers in exchange for a place to sleep and breakfast.

The guy used starboard to get port board

Two men contracted to paint a rather large boat that served as a floating church Being very frugal(cheap), they pinched and scraped to spend the absolute minimum on materials. Then, when they were only partway through the job, they determined that they did not, after all, have enough paint to complete the job. Not wishing to spend any more money if they didn't absolutely have to,they decided they would just dilute the water-based paint they were using so that it would last longer. They did this a couple more times before they finished, which caused striping on the church boat as the paint got lighter each time it was thinned. The painters had just about gotten to the top of the steeple, when, all of a sudden, the sky darkened, and the rain started to pour down. As the paint streamed down the sides of the church boat , a voice boomed from the heavens: "Repaint, you thinners! Repaint, and thin no more!"

I could use an absolutely tireless and enthusiastic proud craftsman who is fabulous at reading my mind so he / she will accomplish exactly accordingbto my plans three times the work I do myself while barely caring about receiving a paycheck.
