Didn’t your mother tell you to measure twice and cut once?
Maybe you just forgot that. But here you are now, with a boat too big to leave its port. And the good people of Rotterdam have decided not to dismantle their sweet little iconic bridge for you. Which, unfortunately, is the only way you and your brand new boat can get to the other side. And, which you most certainly want to do. Otherwise, really, what is your “largest sailing yacht in the world” going to do with itself?
Listen, Mr. Bezos, I feel your pain. I really do. OK, maybe not on such a grand scale, but still.
See, when it comes to measurements, The Mister also has a a bit of an issue. It’s nearly impossible to recount the times that floors, shelves, cute little bird feeders and more have needed some (or many) adjustments. A quick trip to Lowe’s usually suffices for his oppsies but that “measure twice and cut once” thing still applies.
While our little mishaps are just that…….little…. yours is more of a David and Goliath kind of thing. Aka, ancient treasured bridge V. a billionaire’s brand new, seriously outsized, boat.
So, Mr. Bezos, on a personal note, I am very grateful to you and Amazon for bringing all-things-necessary to our doorstep during Covid. And I thank you. But given all that, I still feel compelled to root for that sweet little bridge.
