"You know what OM?" said Super Lady, "you worked so hard on all of this, and you did it all while supporting and being with your family, working a full time job, AND finishing up your bachelor's degree as an adult, I think you deserve a reward."
With that introduction, she concluded with "Why don't we just hire someone to finish the drywall?"
The day is saved! The OM no longer needs to fear that he will completely wreck the job with poor finishing. Now all he has to do is find a drywall finisher in the Lancaster PA area who does nice work, and is willing to finish this drywall, hung by an amateur:
P.S. If you liked my little story, and happen to know any drywall finishers in the Lancaster PA Area (or if you happen to be one!) reach out to me via any of the methods on my contacts page - I'm looking to have estimates in hand and someone selected for the job in fairly short order!
