    Yup, It's Thrusday Already

    super said the same thing about the roots, they're all wrapped around the sewer pipe and it's just a matter of time before it starts giving me problems. not that he's looking for an out, his reason for saying that is that they cut quite a bit of the roots to replace the sewer connection, and between the root cutting and the limb cutting, he agreed that it's probably going to kill the tree anyway. i don't know an arborist, but i know some landscaping guys.

    I guess it's safe to tell you now. I put jizz on your steering wheel. Figure you've already absorbed it into your skin, and probably eaten something with your hands by now, so my day is complete.

    agree. i actually know that tree to be no more than ~45 years old, as we found a photo of the front of the house taken in 1971 and that tree wasn't there.

    If you can toss that 55gal drum of oil in your truck, I'll pay you in adult beverages.

    Contractor is extremely compliant. They are willing and happy to help us rectify it, the super said, "You might want to consult with a landscaping company to see what your options are." My take is this: he probably has a number in his head he's willing to spend, and he wants to close a deal on it quick. If we stew on it and call a lawyer, his boss will be on the hook for attorney fees just to defend it, so there is definitely an amount he's willing to cough up to make us happy. I'm not looking to lawyer up, Allah knows I've spent enough time in courtrooms over the past couple years. But yeah, we're thinking a little paving, some landscaping, stuff like that. What you can't see from that photo is how that tree makes the house look. It was a grand old tree, the kind kids climb on (and mine did). It gave the house a certain curb appeal. The super even admitted it, "That tree really belonged there, it was perfect." And he acknowledges that they probably killed it, and he acknowledges that you can now see through our windows because the tree isn't there giving us privacy anymore. He's doing a lot of talking about agreeing with us, so I reckon we'll come to terms on this in the next week or so and get some improvements on their dime. Mrs. JFN is the lead negotiator here. She's tough, she tells me what she wants and I roll my eyes, but damned if she won't win. She's got a way of doing that.

    Hearing is currently scheduled for 9/7 at 10am. Pencil it in, though, as attorney is seeking a continuance. Could/Should get pushed out a week or longer, waiting on the judge's decision on the motion right now.

    lol. buy a turbo from the dealer. seems like the first one from the factory lasted a long time, OEM is the way to go here.

    Warranty is OK as long as you don't mind working on the truck for free. I would rather buy parts that just don't fail in the first place, warranty costs me money.

    one works two jobs. the other works zero jobs, so i guess it all evens out. college kids. they don't yet know how hard adulting is going to be.

    i actually thought of you on this tree business. when i got home, the foreman was sitting across the street from the house, as if he already knew i was going to be pissed when i saw what they did to my tree. he and the super came right over to me, and the first words out of their mouth was, "What do you want us to do?" They seem very willing and ready to rectify this situation however they can. not sure what their legal exposure is, but my quick google searching last night indicated that destroying a 40 year old tree can actually be pretty expensive for them to compensate, so i guess that's why they were so quick and ready to make it right with us. we haven't yet decided how to make it right, we're gnawing on it.

    offspring says the crappers are fully functional. i expressed amazement at how they are managing to swap the sewer hookups while we are still flushing.

    What a nice tree in the first photo. What used to be a nice tree in the second. "We need to trim that tree so we can get our excavator in there" turned into demolishing a 40 year old maple. Probably killed the damned thing. We'll be talking reparations with the contractor.
