I’m away on holiday until the 13th February, so I’ll leave you with some tile humour.
Well, it may be humour!
“Could I interest you in one of these, Madam.”
Plain tiles with a consistent visible fault.
Product specification characterised by its complete absence from all tile boxes and price lists.
Someone else’s idea with your name on it.
Obsolete; the chance to show off just how bad a tiler you are. Now universally superseded by Blu Tak.
A pointless discussion that you will never win.
Industry standard description of any tile launched more than three months ago.
The most feared word in the industry.
A term used to describe third grade marble or terrazzo tiles on sale at premium prices.
The gods of the tile industry.
Cunning tiling display system designed to trap small children’s fingers, causing them to scream loudly and help clear the showroom at 5 o’clock.
