There is no excuse I find more contemptible than the statement “we’re only human” as justification for negligence, incompetence, or people who are otherwise integrity challenged. “Get with the program” is another phrase I cannot stand. There must be a new step in the program which allows being human to be the catch-all lame excuse.
Three Easy Steps To Home Buying
1. Set reasonable expectations for quality and service.
2. Reduce by 50%.
3. Lower another 20%.
Now you are ready for the home buying experience.
On the day we chose the home we would purchase, a subcontractor for LBJ Infrastruction Group pushed a barricade into a driving lane and caused over $8,000 worth of damage to my son’s vehicle. We are thankful no one was injured. Oddly enough, it turns out that road construction and home construction companies are very much alike when it comes to the techniques they use to keep from being accountable for poor workmanship and negligence.
These are commonly referred to as a first world problems. The implication being that unless we are one of the twenty percent of humans on the planet who are living on less than a $1.25 a day, our problems are trivial.
Think Warren Buffett doesn’t have a staff attending to his first world problems? Think Bill Gates is camping out in a shanty town? No, a person’s own health and wealth are paramount obligations, and for good reason. The day first world problems prevent us from having resources to contribute to third world problems, we will all be in a world of hurt. That’s right, all of us, because what that means to people who are NOT mega rich but who try to be responsible with their personal resources is that slugs and slackers who don’t give a damn about the damage they do will have taken over the world.
I do not like to be asked if I am liberal or conservative. I strongly dislike being labeled. When I pour myself a glass of wine, I am liberal. When deciding on a hemline, I am conservative. When giving time and money to causes I believe in, I am liberal. When turning the other cheek to people who treat me badly? Well, I don’t do it more than once.
My perspective belongs to me, and unless someone can convince me to do otherwise, I will continue to decide for myself what is important. I think purchasing a home should be an exciting event. It should be a time to celebrate how fortunate we are to have the means to provide comfort for our family. I believe anyone looking to purchase new construction should skip the humans and look for an extraterrestrial builder.
