A few months ago I got a new window put into the side of the house. Consequently I had to organise someone to fix the rendering near the window and on some other places around the house.
I got a couple of quotes and accepted one of them. After the window was put in I contacted this tradesperson to let him know I was ready to get the work done.
I have had to call him three times over the last two months or so to try and pin him down to a day when he can come out and do the work. Yesterday was the last time and he said he would ring me yesterday evening to confirm a day. Guess what I didn’t hear from him and it’s nearly the next evening and I still haven’t heard.
If I don’t hear from him by Friday I’m going to ring up the other person who quoted me and suck up big time to see if he will do the job.
Waiting for this very slack tradesperson is almost like waiting for a guy that you’re keen on to ring when you know deep down they’re not going to ring.
I’m also hoping that by sharing my story that his ears will figuratively burn and his guilty conscience will get him to come and do a great job.
