I'm painting kitchen cabinets in a home that is under construction. The supervisor is a kind of tough, cowboy type. He just moved to a new house and he said the birds were pooping on his truck, so I suggested he cut the limb where the birds were sitting. I said, before you cut the limb, please make sure there's no bird nest. This morning, he told me that he had a ___ of a time, cutting the limb. There was a nest with three eggs in it and he said he nearly killed himself cutting the area where the nest was and attaching/wedging it into another area on the tree. It was so funny when he was telling me about it, but was so sweet and I told him so!!
