THE JOYRIDING END
TO MY BICYCLE LIFE
I'm going to make this path both short and sweet,
(Note: Are they then? And does both mean two?).
There's a cabinetmaker in Nutley waiting for an
order. He wants to do someone's luxury kitchen
over, big-time - it would mean a large contract,
lots of expenditure for cabinetry and wood, in
addition to the installation. All contracted fees.
(Note: These are fixed numbers once the contract
is signed. How are they germane enough here to
be included? Is his 'margin' realistic?). In addition,
the granite countertops and such, having then to be
brought in, will necessitate working with yet another
installation crew. (Stone and counter guys? Mr. Nutley
here is not that sure he works that well with others.
Does this at all make a narrative difference?). His
accountant says : 'Watch the elapsed time on the job,
and make sure you account for it in your figures. If
you spend an overly-long-after-estimate time on the
job, remember, you'll be doing nothing else, no 'other'
job, while you're overtime on this one. That could be
costly.' (Is this how accountants talk to clients?).
