    We don’t really build houses just these pictures on frames

    Excuse me, Mr Construction Man, could I please use your inconvenience?

    It is nice that the squatters notify us of their presence.

    …. and just down the road we’re building an inconvenience store.

    We don’t build houses for people to live in, we only build them to annoy you.

    Housing starts are up. So are housing shocks, startles and surprises.

    They just don’t make inconveniences like they used to.

    Oh, you want doors? That will cost extra.

  11. Ageless | 5:08 am |  Vote: Add rating 5  Subtract rating 1  

    Sorry, we don’t like it either.

    I don’t know about houses, but that’s certainly how road construction works around here: no improvement, just inconvenience.

  13. Droll not Troll | 6:12 am |  Vote: Add rating 4  Subtract rating 1  

    If this house is rockin’, you can’t say we didn’t warn you.

    Some people go into a profession for the challenge. We’re just a bit different.

    Don’t it always seem to go
    That you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone
    They paved paradise and put up a parking lot

    I don’t understand but I can feel it

    Sorry, but as an Engrish person I prefer the incontinence. Cheers!

    If you lived here, you’d be annoyed by now

    The company’s name means “For the Evulz.”

    I understand that you’re inconvenient . You’re welcome!

    @Droll not Troll – Inconvenience Stores: where it’s always crowded, the line-ups are ridiculously long and move like molasses, the staff are never around when you need them, and the clerks would rather put you on hold instead of whoever just phoned them when you’re ready to pay. Better known as Wal-Mart. :-P

  22. Seventy2rd o clock | 10:01 am |  Vote: Add rating 2  Subtract rating 1  

    It’s called ”House on Inconvenient Hill”

  23. Biff the Understudy | 11:00 am |  Vote: Add rating 1  Subtract rating 0  

    They may be in it for the inconvenience, but I’m in it for the money.

    @Lora: a true inconvenience store would have all the products superglued to the ceiling so you have to climb the teetering shelves and pry them loose. Only to have a lighting fixture fall on you.

    “We’ll leave the lights off for you.”

    (In fact, we won’t even connect up the breaker box.)

    “Listen, and please understand. That contractor is out there. It can’t be bargained with, it can’t be reasoned with. It doesn’t feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are inconvenienced!”

    And to the left of the sign: what I like to refer to as the “Construction Dalek”. The don’t exterminate, they merely inconvenience.

    (OK I’ll stop now.)

    And you thought collectors were the only ones with that job requirement…

    I think you’re hidden behind the picture

  30. Marum | 1:05 pm |  Vote: Add rating 3  Subtract rating 0  

    Strange. I’m in it for the money.

    @BtU Solly mate. I posted before I read.

    @Marum: Happens to the best of us :-)

    “So when will it be done?” “Two weeks.”

    If this was a Roadrunner cartoon, a freight train would be coming though that canvas right about now.

    We build our houses out of cards,
    We find it all the quicker,
    And when it all comes tumbling down,
    We giggle laugh and snigger.

    Nah, they’re just in it for the rude and unreasonable.

  37. iLock | 6:48 am |  Vote: Add rating 1  Subtract rating 1  

    Go away. It’s not your house…yet.

  38. Peter Chan | 9:40 am |  Vote: Add rating 0  Subtract rating 0  

    A nation of pure, unmitigated inconvenience, I sure understand.

    Actual house located in micro-universe inside sign, accessible only to Road Runner travelling more than 88 MPH.

    I’m really trying, and even though they said thanks, I still don’t think I quite understand.

    Masochism Construction Co. We’ll be done in a year or two.

  42. zerima | 10:00 pm |  Vote: Add rating 0  Subtract rating 0  

    what are all those shoe racks for? Do they remove shoes before entering even if the house is not built yet? Sooo inconvenient
