Help Wanted On Troutman

August 5, 2009 ·
Filed under: Brooklyn, Bushwick 

I have never been a big fan of self-help industry. This is especially true of books like The Secret which lavish a great deal of attention on what is called the “Law of Attraction”. For those of you who are not motivational-speak savvy, here is a definition of this piece psycho-speak from Wikipedia:

…the Law of Attraction says people’s thoughts (both conscious and unconscious) dictate the reality of their lives, whether or not they’re aware of it. Essentially “if you really want something and truly believe it’s possible, you’ll get it”, but putting a lot of attention and thought onto something you don’t want means you’ll probably get that too.

Why anyone would need to outlay money on a book to figure this out is beyond me. My good friend Rachael (long before this idea became de rigueur to changing one’s life) coined a term for just this phenomenon:

Ass begets ass.

Which brings me to this solicitation from Troutman Street.


How can I not shake the feeling this advertisement for “good” carpenters failed miserably? Is it the fact it is written on a door with marker? The fact it will only be seen by people happen to walk down Troutman Street? The fact “ones” is misspelled? It is probably all of the above.


In any case if any “good” carpenters are reading this and are (still) need of work you might want head down to 114-124 Troutman Street.


You skills may very well still be in demand. And even if they aren’t…


you will be on the inside track to pursue this very novel business proposition just down the street.


Good luck— and remember: think positive!
