    Plasterer being aggressive to us

    It's quite simple mate 160 a day is not a bad price he might have done 2 gauges for 12.30 and gone home he should not have spoke to you or your missus like that so just knock f**k out of him barring this get someone else and take it on the chin

    Awkward pricing

    Awkward pricing

    To be honest mate I've give money back in the past at first I thought it was a 2000 grand job.what I normally do is charge an extra day incase of unforeseen circumstances then give it back if I dont hit any snags.put a little extra on for the price of materials incase I have to pay a bit extra...
