Oh The Dirty Secrets Carpet Pad Has To Tell

We are finally into Collingwolde, and ripping it to shreds. Carpet and very nasty carpet pad adhered to the subfloor by some evil spills and pet indiscretions. The heat is not on yet so it is freezing. The water is not on yet, so the bathroom is a former carton of Trader Joe’s French roast.

Does it really take 80,000 staples to hold down a piece of carpet? I mean my god, it’s not like the carpet is trying to escape. Very tedious. Is it clever to nail in the kitchen cabinets? What were they thinking? Didn’t they know we were going to come in and rip that crap out?

Overall it is going well, and it is nice to have something to do. So on we march.

  1. “Does it really take 80,000 staples to hold down a piece of carpet?” Maybe it was a flying carpet in a past life?

  2. Dear Ms. Mocha,
    I hope this missive finds you well. I believe you’ve hit the nail on the head. These poor foreclosed upon shlamazzles must have wrasteld that sumbitch down on a trip to Aleppo and smuggled it back to Northeast Ohio. Its nature being to fly, it was prudent to use 60,000 staples to keep it good’n down. But my back hurts. By the way, I know my posting has leaned towards the slackie of late. I appreciate you hanging in there. I run in waves. Hopefully I’m about to blossom. Cheers, Dr. Nostrum

  3. Trader Joe’s and restless carpets, too funny. Best of luck with your projects!
