Everyone seems to think you can work for peanuts, some jobs you can tell are going to be a bit of a struggle on price and builder says he can get it done cheaper, get them to do it then! If more people had a reality check prices wouldn't be so poor, seems everyone's a plasterer around here by the sign written vans, the quality of work is shocking and they aint making much money. Glad my Mrs has a good job boys it's getting harder if that's possible.

What they need is a couple of T***s in there ******* things up for a while, half the time you have to guide the builder because he's a play actor!

makes me laff when someone say, 'my mate can do it for a lot less than that' ....... 'so why wast my time and your time getting me out for a look? you tit'

theyre the best that get you to call round to patch a small area and when ya tell the £50 they turn round and say ive had a quote for £40.. was they wanting me to pay them to do it?
