Surfeit of Steves [Jul. 27th, 2012|09:12 pm]
Previous Entry Add to Memories Share Next Entry
Today we had a visit from Steve (Guttering Guy), who repaired/replaced some of our guttering.

This means that in the last few weeks we've dealt with Steve (Electrician), Steve (Plasterer) and Steve (Guttering Guy). And before that, we were dealing with the Fascia and Sofits guy who recommended Steve (Guttering Guy), who is his nephew -- and the Fascia and Sofits guy is also called Steve.

Too many Steves. At least the plumber isn't called Steve -- he's called Mark (Plumber).

Steve (Guttering

I initially read that as Steve Guttenberg and had to do a double-take.

We could give you the number of our plumber if you like. Steve Smith.

I remember back in the distant past when Wag's front doorbell read "Waggott/Plummer" and someone asked him if he was a plumber.

We've had three different people visiting to fail to fix our gas leak in the last week. None of them were called Steve which is obviously where we went wrong.
