Pennies From Heaven

inspired by Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC) of 25 August 2022, casualty.

There was once an old fella called Bruce,
In a big storm, his roof tile came loose,
He was caught, sure enough,
When an extra-strong puff,
Made it topple and cooked the guy’s goose.

  1. We have a piece of mortar from the roof verge that’s come loose, and do you think we can get anyone to come out and fix it? Three different companies have said they’ll come out, they made appointments, and never showed. It’s infuriating. Does this happen to you also? If they don’t want the job why not say so.

    • Y. It has always been terrible around here. Only this morning we were discussing a leaky tap.
      A leaky tap, ffs! But screwing things is one of the things I cannot do these days. We had a plumber in just 9 months ago who installed a totally fresh pair of taps, so no way should anything be leaking this quickly.
      It’s infuriating that tradesmen not only charge the earth but are total shite with it.
