This was the day I had selected to get quotes on repair or replacement of garage doors at both our home and at one of our rental houses. I got three possible companies lined up to come for a look at our home (and the rental), take measurements and supply us with quotes.
It’s a wet day. The first of the company reps showed up at our house at 10 or so, made his measurements and then followed me over to the rental to do the same there. While he was writing up his estimate, I got phone calls from both reps from the other two companies. I told them both I’d meet them back at our home at 11. They could do their thing there (measure, ask questions and what not). Then we all go over to the rental house and they could do the same.
All tolled, this all took a little over an hour out of my morning.
As I was leaving, I noticed that the gal from the one garage door company and the gentleman from the other company were standing out in the rain beside their vehicles, engaged in what appeared to be a very animated conversation. Had I hooked up Garage Door Gal with Garage Door Guy?
As I rolled out of the neighborhood, I was thinking, “What if these two get together, fall in love, get married and have a family? Did I do a good thing?”
Did I mention that it rains a lot in the Pacific Northwest? When I passed them in the street, I snapped a picture with my iPhone. The rain magically added a sort of textured screen to the scene. What will happen to Garage Door Gal and Garage Door Guy?
Only the future knows.
