There’s that Angie’s List commercial about Joe the Plumber. The woman says that Joe was doing some work at her house when she wasn’t home and her little papillon had to go out. Poor “Joe patiently paraded her up and down the street sacrificing his time and dignity until her business was done”. I have dogs. It isn’t necessary to “parade” them up and down the street. They’ll go in the yard. – And did he really sacrifice his time? or did he include the time in his labor charges?
