Consultants for ABC Wednesday

C for ABC Wednesday





Consultants

How many consultants does it take to chainsaw a fallen tree into pieces?

One brother, one nephew and one grandson consult about the best way to chop this dead tree.
I couldn't hear what they said but it makes me laugh to see them huddle before the next cut. 

If only I had the audio. Can you imagine what the conversation might concern?

"One more cut and we're off for lunch! Cannelloni with cheese and coleslaw. Caramel custard for dessert"

~I suppose they have a lot of C's on their mind :)

I have observed that this is something men do very well, - consult! And maybe women too.

Starnitesky said...

The conversation would be interesting!

Oh, so funny. Reminds me of my dad and his friends. They would talk for hours about how to do a thing, instead of actually doing it.

Carver said...

This made me laugh. I have an image of what the recording of the consultation would sound like.

Just this morning, I drove past some arborist cutting tree branches. I was debating if I should stop and take their photo. The man was up the cherry picker. So glad you had this photo.

I'm looking for a shirt just like that blue one! They are the best for our weather, indoors or out. Sorry, off the point.

I guess there is a right way and a wrong way to cut up wood with a chainsaw. Wouldn't want to break the blade. (I think they can be broken and then expensive to replace.)Could be dangerous too. I guess I've been around menfolk cutting down large trees a few times in my life to remember a few odd details.

RuneE said...

What should we do with out consultants? maybe - work?

Cheryl said...

We had half a tree go down in our yard. The conversation was hilarious.

Jingle said...

wow, lovely take on C.

enjoyed your wit.

Reader Wil said...

This is hilarious! The discussing and consulting take more time than the chopping itself.

Rajesh said...

Hilarious.

Good 'C' - funny!

Francisca said...

Charming and clever C post... made me smile to see your men consulting!

Joy said...

HaHa It could take some time. Your clever heading reminded me of those light bulb jokes which of course has one for this occasion:
Q How many consultants does it take to change a light bulb.
A. I'll have a estimate for you a week on Monday.

nonizamboni said...

Oh, this is SO classic! And I trust that was a rhetorical question.
:O)

Paula Scott said...

Perhaps they were curious about where they were going to go after this? He, he...a picture is worth a thousand words!

Beverley Baird said...

Got a chuckle from your post! Loved the idea of all consulting and no one acting!

Sorry to be so late getting over here, but it was worth it! I laughed at your words...

C for Chuckle! ;-) Clever post... and you know, oftentimes it's a lot more fun to work with such help!

Snow Leopard said...

Or rather they were discussing about their favourite team.
Quite imaginative post
