Expected unexpectedness

Excavation has turned up an unexpected water pipe that was not on the plans that had to be relocated. So, no water in the building today. (Electricity went out last Friday when they hit an unexpected power line.)

The construction company has sent over ice chests and bottled water, which is nice. Bathrooms are available in the building across the street, which is not so nice.

My question is, how long before they hit an unexpected gas line?

Um, a very, very long time, I hope...

Oh dear - is their motto 'expect the unexpected' by any chance?

That is one of the greatest icon/post pairings I've seen in awhile.

Bathrooms are available in the building across the street, which is not so nice.

Man, as someone from the rural South, I cringe a bit when directions to the bathroom begin with "go outside..." We haven't had indoor plumbing THAT long, and a few places still don't have it, so I hate to give the wrong impression. :)

It's pretty obvious to me that you should get a few days off so they can resolve all of these "unexpected issues." Mhmm.
