We need some work done on the house, so I called around to get estimates. I
arranged a time for the guy to come out. He asks "Is there a MR.?"and if so, he would like to meet at a time when he could be there. Now I am a little offended - Jason is busy at work-- I usually take care of stuff like this, then talk to him about it. But just to hurry things up, I schedule a time when j should be home. The man comes out, and starts measuring and figuring stuff, and Jason calls and tells me he has a late meeting, so I tell the man "sorry , my husband won't be here...something came up at work." The siding guy then tells me things in a way that makes me feel like I am taking a message for Jason. I finally told him that I usually take care of house stuff like this, and Jason and I decide things together. He says OK, but then as he was leaving, he tells me that he can come back out when my husband is home to go over the details with him. I told him, thank you, I will tall Jason that, but he won't need you to come back out. Then he says,"I usually like to have both the husband and the wife here when I give an estimate... the wife usually wants to pick the color..." Would any of you think this is a little .... I don't know... backwoodsish??? I know men usually do house stuff, and women do usually pick out the color, but this just blew my mind!!
