Reasons to be boldly unsweet or even en suite …
04 Jul 2013
In the middle of renovating a house during a summer vacation, a prospective tenant attended to see the progress. Whilst on-site she phoned me to ask if she could have a private en-suite bedroom. I explained we had already explored such possibility and regrettably there was nowhere to put it.
This lady was nothing if not persistent and in the end I said faithlessly, “Ask the builders if they can fit you an en suite and if they can, you can have one”.
I expected the builders to reply negatively. Ending the phone call to me, the lady announced to the builders, “Bob says you have to build me an en-suite.” Believing the lady had my endorsement, the builders reviewed the plans and between them came up with a unique way to do what she demanded.
From now on, whenever the builders say no to me, I am asking this lady to talk to the builders.
