This would have been a good day to be a ditch digger. I use that profession as an example mainly because I picture it as a job where maybe you donít get interrupted by phone calls all day long. Who knows, maybe rocket scientists donít have to listen to the phone ringing incessantly either, but I think ditch diggers are more likely to experience that kind of serenity.
Apparently (and I say that even though I know it to be true), we once looked at the plans for a big job that was bidding today. That meant that every other contractor who looked at those plans wanted to contact us, to see whether we wanted to work with them or compete against them to get the job. We actually pulled out of that job weeks ago, shortly after the Boss took a look at the plans and decided it wasnít a good fit for us. Nevertheless, the phone rang off the hook (well, no, I left it on the hook, mostly) all day long.
