Three different men, One project.

The BEST MOVIE version is HERE  (Three Men,One Chandelier)

Let’s take an over protective nervous wreck, add in a the Italian laboring electrician and a stir that combination, with a man that has severe A.D.D.

Nervous wreck: Poppa Sye

Laboring Electrician: Uncle Vic

Man with A.D.D.: My father

Let the building of scaffolding begin:

“I THINK? WE NEED THIS BOARD? RIGHT? LETS PUT THIS ON NOW….”

“THIS IS TOOO DANGEROUS” (said the man below having near epileptic seizures, look at his fists clenched!)

LOOK CLOSLEY at THIS PICTURE… (poppa sye, on the left, is having an internal panic attack, eyeballing the structure and I know JUST what he is thinking…“This is sure to collapse at any moment…I’m sure of it… I don’t trust this thing. Not.for.a second!”)

“IM SURE IF WE TURN IT… like THIS… it will be a better angle” (said the man with A.D.D.)

“Ahh ha… Now we’ve got it!”

“Whew! It’s up, it’s done, its ready… let’s get the chandelier and start wiring!”

In the meantime, over protective man needed to put THIS as a “WARNING”, to others, to “LOOK OUT!” As if we wouldn’t notice the gigantic bright yellow metal poles and boards creating a massive structure. No, the broom would be what saved us from crashing into the obvious scaffolding.

“Wow! This shits is pretty high!”

“Okay… I’ll wire this fucker…”

After much wiring, and chaining the chandelier, and an argument over weather or not EIGHT FEET was in fact the RIGHT height…

“WHY DON’T THEY JUST LISTEN to ME?” (said woman running the whole operation, my mom)

ALMOST! It’s time to take the chandelier out of the box!!!

and, yes… yes… eight feet …yes…almost… almost hooked up…

and FINALLY

YEAY! Mom and Dad have a new chandelier. And NO ONE DIED. AND NO ONE GOT HURT.

GOOD JOB GUYS!!

PS… at one point A.D.D. man did say…

“Huh? Are you talking to me? Wait? What? Me? I am supposed to do what?”

Now, all they have to do is hang the window treatments….
