Installing Carpet
« on: October 02, 2008, 06:31:18 PM »
 A carpet layer had just finished installing carpet for a lady. He stepped out for a smoke, only to realize he'd lost his cigarettes.

In the middle of the room, under the carpet, was a bump.

''No sense pulling up the entire floor for one pack of smokes,'' he said to himself. He proceeded to get out his hammer and flattened the hump.

As he was cleaning up, the lady came in. ''Here,'' she said, handling him his pack of cigarettes. ''I found them in the hallway.''

''Now,'' she said, ''if only I could find my parakeet.''

I thought it was pretty funny!  Especially since Mark is a general contractor.  :-D

I'll let him find this joke and respond!   :-X

My uncle is a carpet layer and would relate that story as if he did that.  It took a few incredulous years before we figured out that it really didn't happen.... :roll:
