FOWC with Fandango — Indebted


It’s December 10, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “indebted.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

    i am indebted
    to the wonderful people
    i have met online
    whom i have not actually met
    but who have supported me
    at a very difficult time
    and restored my faith
    in humanity
    God bless them
    God bless you all

    I’m gobsmacked, at the moment. We got a bid, this morning, for installing a shower replacement, small (but not the smallest possible). We previously looked at a certain kind of solid composit stone custom shower walling during the 2020 pandemic days; found the waiting time was over half a year and that the job would be more expensive than we had thought — but affordable. The wait was the biggest issue to me. We considered the idea, comparatively, putting up relatively plain one-piece plastic/acrylic/what-have-you sheets for walls would be less expensive and quicker. Therefore, the appointment today. This bid was about three times as much! It’s the price of a new car (obviously depending upon what kind of car)!! Oh, you could get twelve months of indebtedness to them with no interest or about a $270 (called five percent) decrease in overall price by paying cash instead. They also had gimmicks the likes of fifty percent on the price of installation, and fifteen percent off the whole for “initial signup” — I suppose assuming or hoping one would want to continue choosing them for other rooms. It still landed at $17,819 (about two times what the heftier and more interesting material and work was going to be with a different company)!!! At least the deposit was only twenty percent (when it’s only ever decent to not demand the full amount before completing the work in full satisfactorily). But twenty percent of the non-discounted sticker price is the amount I thought the very simple treatment in this extra bedroom suite should cost in full. It’s only a shower, not the entire bathroom (and involves no tiling whatsoever even around the edges)!!!! Not happening, fuckers.

      Been there, done that! At last we found a decent contractor who is always looking for work in January and February when jobs are slow. But bathrooms are a contractors cash cow.

        Thank you SO much for the information and the empathy! At that price, we’re figuring we could do our own trial and error and see how things turn out.
