- How many tradesmen have let YOU down today?
- b rMember
Yesterday, one did.
Expected him at 0800, he texted at 0920 to say he’d be over for 1100.
At 1200 I rang him, he said he was just leaving Edinburgh so would be straight over (say an hour). At 1415 I rang him. No response.
Good job I was just working on my house anyway, so at home.
At 0800 this morning I text him. No response.
At 1400 I get a very apologetic call saying he’d screwed up yesterday and could he come Monday. Agreed.Posted 4 years agoyossarianMember
I’m having a lovely time with a builder/plasterer
After pissing off around 16 weeks ago leaving a whole load of little jobs unfinished he is now rather hurt and surprised that I’m withholding the last 1k from him. Guess what f/;(nut, when you actually do the work, you’ll get paid.

I find it hard to actually spend my money with tradesmen, they seem to just not care. I know I should avoid generalising but it does seem to be the majority. They really do act like they are doing you a favour rather than running a business. And why do tradesmen never have a website?Posted 4 years agooldnickMember
I have a cracking reputation because I give a shit, however I could make more money if I didn’t.
But since I enjoy having a clear conscience and don’t need to earn more than I do I’ll carry on working entirely from recommendations (no advertising, no website, too much work as it is 🙂 )Posted 4 years ago
