Idiots everywhere.

Who cares what anyone earns. Lots on here so obsessed with money, more to life then chasing the paper, u sad acts

It is about lifestyle...

Whos richer? The guy with the Lambprghini that works 16 hours a day 6 days a week or the person who does a few hours a week and spends the rest doing as they please?

I think more people envy the esecond person :D

MOney helps but most people dont live within their means so need to keep chasing

When you think you know someone, then you hear they've been slagging you off because of some cracks, then you get the ones oh it's more then we thought it would be could you so it for x amount cash, sorry love, I don't do a full shop at tesco for £100 and say to cashier oh that's abit expensive will you take £70. Idiots absolute idiots.
plumber was telling me he had been on a job for 5 days, put his bill in and they had itemised every biscuit and cup of coffee, and the dates and times he had used his drill , then deducted electric used and cost of all coffee and biscuits, when he complained they said well you did not have to eat them or drink the coffee,

over the years boy have have i had the idiots, but without a doubt this was the worst,
approx 5 years ago i started a full reskim of an old property, no carpets down/ customer had 3 rooms all ready to start/ and he was working ahead dotting and dabbing/ good day rate agreed /on my own all day every day/ a good job, then,
after 10 days he turned up as agreed to pay me, i then found out that for 10 days he had hidden cameras all round the property, and had been watching me all day working away from his office, he knew to the second what time i left//what i did/ tea breaks etc etc,
his wife was very, very, heavily pregnant at the time , so i had to be very carefull what i said or did, but i told him in no uncertain terms what i thought of him and his cameras, i went apeshit with him, got my money and left him, and he still had the cheek to say i cant walk off as he had some rooms ready, i went back upstairs and told him in a very quite voice what to do, i could write a book

How could he hide a camera in a room you were fully reskimming? Where did he put the camera?

camera, in the hallway/2 clocks on walls/outside on gable end/caravan /as and when he moved round the house getting rooms ready he moved them round / it was a large building he took it all as a big joke,
i actually remarked on the one in the hallway ,he said it was a fire alarm and just skim round it,

What a arsehole. I do usually think when I'm at work best not say too much about state of the house or if the wife's fits etc, technology everywhere

I always try to remember to behave exactly 'as if' there are cameras everywhere in a house. That way, you minimise the chance of being pulled-up by customers who've seen you do something (either way, whether it's of a personal or work nature)

Of course, there is a margin. Absolutely.

But there's a margin and then there's taking the piss out of someone too naive to realise he's having the piss taken out of him.

There should be a middle ground, where both parties are being treated fairly.
Yes agreed

So if I was charging £150 a day it would be OK to pay him 125? But because I'm switched on, been in business over 15years and can charge good money I should pay him more?
Doesn't make sense to me
