It’s taken months and months to finally get the new window put in and the rendering around the window and other patches around the house to get done but it was finished this morning.
The window was no problem – that was done with a relative minimum of fuss. It was trying to find someone to do the rendering that was the problem. Last August I think it was I got two quotes and I accepted one. The person whose quote I accepted full-on gave me the run around so I finally got the hint of unreturned calls that he didn’t want to come and do the job.
I rang up the second guy whose quote, I had told him, I wasn’t accepting. He was really nice about it and he’s just finished the work. He rang me when he said he would, he turned up on time and he did a great job. He even put up with JJs continual questioning and enlisted his help.
When I paid him in cash, he handed $10 back to JJ who was absolutely stoked. We’ve put this money into his Incredibles moneybox for him to think about what he might like to spend it on.
I don’t understand why all tradesmen can’t be as reliable. I will extoll his virtues to all my friends who might be in the market for some work like this to be done and he could get heaps of work out of my relatively little job. It doesn’t take much people. A bit of good service goes a long long way.
