Just got a call from the painter guy wanting to set up a time to assemble furniture. So, that's gonna get done. Yay.
Whilst discussing price:
Me: How much do you want for this?
HPG: I dunno, what do you think?
Me: I seriously have no clue. I don't know how long it will take, what's involved, whatever.
HPG: Uh, maybe like $30?
Me: That seems kinda chintzy. How about $40?
HPG: Interesting. I was hoping you'd go down instead of going up.
OK, now even I have to admit he probably wants to do me.
