I crashed at The Sister's house the night before last and I was awoken to a "Hey get up, I'm tired of the carpet in the living room and there's hardwood underneath." So what do I do? Help out of course. Talk about a pain in the ass to rip out carpet and all that is entailed. Apparently the staple guy who put down the padding decided to make staple designs in the floor. Seriously. 10 hours of work later and it was done. I can't figure out why they put carpet down over the hardwood anyway. It was ok at first but now it's like a new house. I'm more likely to stay the night there more often instead of the other way around.
