Better business blunders

Handshake

Tanks a lot

“professional welders who are in possession of all thinkable certificates”.

I remember being able to buy “all thinkable certificates” in the Moscow metro back in the 1990s.

“In the same way you can drop your questions.”

Drop, as in forget it altogether. The rest of this site is a real riot.

    Heheh. For those of us with a cold, “cool down your flue gases” please: http://www.trading2000bv.nl/english/tktopcondensor.htm

    Oops, should have fact-checked myself, it probably means “pipe gases” in this case: http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=flue

    Pardon my ignorance.
