Not word for word, gotta try and remember this one. There where 3 general contractors placing a bid on a new oak bookcase for the town library.. 1 from california, 1 from Iowa, and 1 from new york. first the guy from california starts, I’ll build and install your book case for 999$, out of old growth weeping green oak. Fair enough. Then the contractor from Iowa talks, I’ve been building book case’s for over 50 years, I’ll build and install your bookcase and stain and finish it for free, for 700. Finally The NY contractor’s turn, Yea , I’ll do this thing for 5,000. The guy steps back, How do you come up with 5 thousand dollars. that’s really allot. The ny’ker says 2,000 for me 2 for you and we hire the guy from iowa.

for sure not word for word, found that joke in I think, nov. this old house. mag. much funnier in the magazine.
