Me: Mr. Man, why are the lights in the house flickering?
Mr. Man: Well, it's happening throughout the house. So it's probably a city electricity issue.
***fast forward 18 hours***
Me: Mr. Man? Why is there no electricity upstairs?
Mr. Man: I turned the breaker off because...............Do you really want to know what I've known for awhile?
Me: You mean I've been on a 'need to know' basis about an issue with the electricity in our house?
Mr. Man: Yup.
Me: (considers next move.)
Me: Will said electricity issue further delay the insulation/bathroom project?
Mr. Man: (considers next move.)
Me: You know what? 'Need To Know' works for me.
