Subject: RE: BS: What does 8 thousand pounds buy?
Heck, Don, the problem is obvious! You need a secure fence around your yard so you can have a pool. You're being charged 8,000 Pounds Sterling for it. But you live in Washington, DC, where things are paid for in US Dollars. That means you and your fencing contractor are in different countries! You're in the US and he's in the UK! No wonder the fence is so expensive! That 8,000 pound invoice probably includes air fare for his whole crew from Heathrow to Reagan National! Find an American contractor and he'll probably do it for half as much. In dollars.
