Funny. I work at a lumberyard that has a kitchen design department. I’m going to forward this link to my buddy Mike the head designer. He will get a kick out of it. Thanks.

Good thing they were not discussing what type of Granite for the counter tops.

Yea know the Jonse’s , well they split up. She thought the granite had to come from the left side of a boulder that rolled off the mountian in a South direction.

He was fixated on aligning the original stone to it’s magnetic north. Then he learned about the angle of decanlation moved from year to year. Well that sent him over the edge. He could not cope with the idea, that magnetic north and Santa’s workshop were not affixed.

He went on a drinking binge, lost his job and the house. DUI also.

She ran away with a guy who grew up with laminate counter tops. The whole family had disowned her now that she is letting her standards slide. The family went over for an intervention, well they came in and saw post formed counter tops. Mrs Jone’s mother had a nervous breakdown and was taken away by EMT’s.

The children are now Wards of the State. They are having difficulty adjusting to there new foster home. The loving couple that offered there home to the shattered family, had just installed Quartz counter tops. They are asking the State to give them a $12,000. This is to put in Granite tops, under the same plan as wheel chair ramps, and roll in showers.

The social workers have approved the spending, but are held up, deciding the country of origin and possible connections with terrorism. 2 workers have been put on stress leave, due to infighting.

the comments are funnier than the article! ha!

LakeLover…you crack me up, dude!

Ever sit in on a Home depot “free” cabinet design with a client? loads of fun. never again.

ever take a client to a granite warehouse?......5 hours later,

”it’s between this one and this one and…. where is that other one?”

so much for lunch.
