Well, who would-a-thunk’d it: Hans breakage of the garage will probably cost him about 3500 Euro. It seems that he has no insurance to cover this damage. Serves him right. I know that’s mean to say; but that is why I prefer to hire professionals. Has the nice side effect that I don’t annoy the people who know me.

I’d place a moderate bet that he will manage somehow to avoid having to pay – he is that kind of guy. We’ll see.
