Blonde speaking....
 
Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with those expensive double-glazed energy-efficient kind. Yesterday, I got a call from the contractor who installed them.
 
He was complaining that the windows had been installed a whole year ago and I hadn't paid for them yet.

Now just because I'm blonde doesn't mean that I am automatically stupid.
 
So I told him just exactly what his fast-talking sales guy had told ME last year...namely, that in just ONE YEAR these windows would pay for themselves!

"Helllooooo!" I said, "It's been a year"!
 
There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally just hung up...he hasn't called back, probably too embarrassed about forgetting the guarantee they made me.

If your neighbours don't listen to The Ramones, turn it up real loud so they can.
