A shoddy letter

Dear Editor:

Considering how “shoddy” Scott DeGraff has been treated – I think it’s time for someone to come to his aid. In the most recent newspaper story, DeGraff claims he is a victim of “shoddy” work – thus the reason he refuses to pay.

Like Bette Midler, he seems to need a friend. I’d volunteer, but I do not think I would be his first choice, nor second, nor third – maybe a “shoddy” fourth?

I wonder if a patron of Aspen Junk thought their hamburger was a bit “shoddy,” and refused to pay, what would DeGraff do? I would suggest small claims court is the place to settle a “shoddy” burger dispute.

It hard to believe, so many who did do work for him did “shoddy” work. But, it’s possible, unlikely – but still possible. With that said, just know I am here for you, Scott. I could come in a burger, or even a “shoddy” burger, and we could talk it over.

Finally, I was able to use the word “shoddy” nine times in this letter, which is not “shoddy.” (Make it ten times.)

Andrew Kole
