or, after a big snafu resulting in a FUBAR….

“You’ll have that, on the bigger jobs..”

I remember helping dad replace brakes on his car and after tightening the lug nuts he asked if they were tight enough. I asked how tight? He said, “Tighter than a bear’s butt in a swarm of bees.”

Heard often on the jobsite;

the painter will fix it.

When something is out of plumb or askew;

Ray Charles could see that!

Or;

dumber than a box of rocks,

couldn’t pure p!$$ out of a boot with the instructions on the heel,

that’s finer than frog hair,

you can’t make a Cadillac out of VW parts
