Culture (Important)

Please read this carefully.

  • We’re helpful, chill people. (At least we think we are).
  • We have dinners together. Mostly over Family Guy or Lethal Weapon or whatever catches our fancy.
  • We smoke in the gallery. Can be moved to the balcony if you’re allergic.
  • We party on Friday/Saturdays. They’re no different from most bachelor parties. 😉
  • We like to keep the house clean. We expect the same from you.
  • Occasionally we have friends over – we expect your cooperation. We’ll extend the same in your case.
  • Occasionally we have our family members over, for 2-3 days at most. We expect your full cooperation during that time. That includes being on your best behaviour (which means no smoking, no drinking and no swearing during that time).

If you think these are reasonable requests, we think you’ll be a good fit. Plus, we’ll make good friends. 🙂

Thanks for reading, have a great day!

That’s all folks! Can we be friends?
