Love some of these, as said above this is why I don't generally work for anyone else, have had to put up with s**t prep from builders etc/ in the past, f**k all that!

Can't stand the customers that don't offer you a f**k**g cup of tea either, and when you cheekily ask for one that's it, the one, you don't hear from them again the rest of the day. You even suggest making them yourself 'NO, I'll get it.'.. f**k me you possessive c**ts, f**k off wankers that don't trust you being in their house.

You should say to them very cold and calm "Do you want to know why I went to Prison!?" Whilst grabbing your Stanley and lump hammer ;)

I hate the customers that have no social skills who don't know how to hold a conversation, and they are always the ones that stand in the corner of the room watching you.

And when they have little weird kids that equally have no social skills and demonically stair at you through the door.

Or w**k*r kids that jump on your dust sheets and tell me 'I'm allowed to do this', no you aint you little f**k I'll stick my claw hammer in the back of your head and skull f**k you if your mum don't tell you to pack it in!!!

And customers that call you, and expect you to lead the converstion as if you f**k**g called them!!! Seriously?!?!

I had one yesterday/today..

Customer called and left a message.

I called back and asked what needs doing etc/ how soon does she expect work done blah blah, said I was only booked up for two weeks if she can wait that long, so agreed for me to come over tonight to take a look.

I then had two more weeks of work book in so my lead time is a month, so I txted her knowing she wasn't keen on waiting much more than two weeks so she then replied 'yes, too long.' 'thanks anyway'.

I then get a message today just saying 'we will see you tonight.'


What do you mean WE WILL SEE YOU TONIGHT!??! no you f**k**g won't, atleast have the decency to politely ask IF I MAY still be able to come over and take a look. Ffs

Bet your life she was using me just to give another estimate to compare to other spreads.

Can't stand rude people.

Patching a house after a rewire and conjute sitting proud of the wall and boxes not even set all while walking over a pile of rubble and wire off cuts.
I had this a while back doing the insurance work. Cleaned up before i started. But kept it seperate. Did all the chases. Cleaned up. Got the job signed off then tipped all the sparkys rubbish back on the floor and spread it about and told the office he needs to come back and sort it. How petty is that lol

Chewy customers that stand over you scrutinising everything.

Is that the finish?

No I haven't flattened it in yet. f**k off
Had this Monday-Tuesday. Will that bit be filled? Does it need another coat? What about that little splash on the finished wall. He came in again and before he could say anything i said what are you going to pick at now? I said let me finish then you can pick fault. Finished up. Scraped and swept the floor. Even offered to hoover and mop which he declined. Chuffed with everything all paid up. sometimes they just need telling

Had a great one this week.
Bloke turned up on a job I'm doing. Goes.. right your the 1st bloke I've come to, don't mess me about, I live just up the road. I need you to come up and price this work. It's only a day. I don't mind paying a bit more for a good job, don't let me down, don't f**k me about. And I want it done this week. When can you start?
I said, won't be doing it this week.
His reply, we'll don't f**k**g bother then. Then he left.

Felt like I'd been assulted afterwards. My mate was pissing himself. [emoji43]

Yeah, and they look at you like you're mental when you say doesn't matter how big the gauge is, it still takes the same amount of time to go off.
Sometimes get tempted to do those ones then leave after 30mins!!
