    Is my work considered 'one of a kind'?

    Thought maybe I could charge more, what with my constant screw-ups, seems the majority of my work has become 'Cussdumb'


    Just a little Monday moanin cheers ...off to the shop, just peeked in and it's up to 40 degrees now woo-hoo {Grrrr & Brrrr}
    Have a great day!

    pretty funny--never heard that before. Have a nice day. I just put my boots on to go to the shop and LOML says, "honey can you just take a minute (or 2 hours) and help me do A, B, C, D, and E?" The weather is clear and sunny, but a bit windy here. TTYL all,

    cuss---dumb

    I feel sick. I am a punster and that never even occurred to me, let alone have a chance to use it.

    Enjoy,

    Cynthia, when my other half get's the 'honey do' list out, I always tell her, sure I'll get right on it, but first I need to finish a gift I'm working on for your mother

    "re-designing" LOL Bob, I may have to borrow that one, would go good with a company name like 'Do-It again Designs by - 20/20 Hindsight Inc.'

    Be grateful Jim, it takes considerable determination & procrastination to avoid the skills levels I've yet to reach....Feel free to use the pun though

    Pardon me?

    Not being english my mother tongue and not being very familiar with slang I experience some difficulty in picking up the right meaning of that ┐contraction?.

    cuss = cursing? dumb = dumb?

    Please enlighten this poor foreigner thirsty of coloquial knowledge...
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Yes, Toni, he's saying "custom" = "cuss-dumb" suggesting his custom work involves a lot of cussing (or cursing or bad words) and dumb decisions. Pretty clever.

    Thanks a lot Cynthia. Now that I've learnt something new I can go to bed relaxedly.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Hi Toni, it's a play on the word 'custom'...the mistakes I make in planning, cutting, etc. etc. all cause me to 'cuss' at my 'dumb' thinking process
    Hope that clears it up wasn't meant to confuse, my English lacks so bad at times, I often wonder myself at what I say


    Edit: missed Cynthia clearing it up...Thanks!
