Done A Job

The other day I happened across a picture on my desktop that I took months ago and then totally forgot about. Although it's slightly untimely, I think it's too funny not to share.

Back in August, we visited my dad at his home in Athens, Ohio. It's a cute little town of about 20,000 people and is home to Ohio University. Although this small college town is fairly normal and the majority of people there seem well educated, the city is right on the edge of the Appalachian Mountains, where people tend to live a much simpler lifestyle that most of us.

Anyway, a short time before our visit, Dad had commissioned a metalworker to create a special piece of steel to fit on the rafters of their log cabin for extra support. When the part was completed, this was the receipt he received:

The simplicity of this completely cracked us up! "Done a job" is quite the description of services, don't you think?

Okay that is so funny. Did your dad say if the guy wasn't very bright?
