I'm not only the president, I'm also a client!

If you need a window repaired around here, your best bet* is the local Ace Hardware store, according to as unimpeachable a source as Ace Hardware itself:

No job is too big, no job is too small. Some jobs, however, are too obvious, and thus they must be declined without consideration:

* Also, you should especially avoid the dedicated window place right across the street... in fact, let's all just pretend it's not there entirely!

This is where I disagree with you, sir. The sign simply says that they repair windows. Nowhere in the print does it say they repair windows GOOD.

I can repair windows that way too! Maybe I should start advertising my services!

Don't plumbers' homes have leaky faucets? They put the customer first and they'll fix their window after everyone else's window is fixed. Might not have enough duct tape though.

That's not how you fix a window. You're supposed to smash the rest of it out, and then hang a blue tarp over it.

I want to see a gas barbecue and a lawn mower assembled entirely with duct tape now...

Because, well, they've set a precedent with the window, haven't they?

(This is why when someone calls you 'Ace' it's usually tongue-in-cheek.)

I'm glad I live in a nation full of competent, hard-working people, not like this place... whatever country it is.

There is absolutely nothing that can't be fixed with duct tape!
