    I mostly do too. But working it out like that would have made the job about £2k and he wouldn't have worn it so do you want the job or not? It was an easy job at the end of the day and it paid OK

    It's handy enough to talk to other people even if it's only while you Marshall your own thoughts.

    It certainly is. End of the day, I could have got into a pissing contest about the £90 but I charged him £580 to strip 2 m^2 of tiles, dry it out, replaster the wall, put 2m^2 of tiles back on and paint it, then £180 to supply and fit a £100 shower unit and leaving the place like I was never...

    I'm not taking any more on now til after Xmas. I've got one bathroom to tile and that's me. Then I'm painting my flat and I'm going to sit in it and get drunk until it's time to go to rammy.

    Yes he paid me on the requested day. Takes an extra day to get here. For some reason, Irish banks don't clear transfers on the same day. I'll be more careful about how I word that next time.

    How does my son join a plasterers gang in the Merseyside area?

    He does it be getting off his own arse and not asking momma to pick up after him like he's ten. Kick him out. He'll soon get motivated to look for a job. And if all else fails, there's a perfectly good Parachute Regiment there. Taking unwanted children since 1942

    He has replied. I'm not desperate. I'm indignant. You don't understand what I'm like when a customer is slow to pay. They hope you'll go away but I text and ring them about every 3 hrs. Morning noon and night until they realise that the only way to make it stop is to cough up. I never threaten...

    No. No. Nononononono. No f**k**g way not that time no. I spent a bit of time in Aldershot and a bit of time in Chivnor. Apart from that, Germany. In fact, I had such a good time in BAOR UKLF(G) That I quit rather than take a UK garrison posting

    On that we agree. I call the customer by his first name to his face and I refer to the current one as Mr McGonagal when I speak of them to other trades. Call me old fashioned

    Mardy Customer

    Not yet. He will. I'll text him tomorrow at close of play if he doesn't and rescind my offer. Only costs €25 to take someone to district court here and at the very least, that'd cost him a 400 mile drive to defend it. He knows that.

    I told him £30 a day. I knew it would be more than 3 days and that would be profit. My mistake was one word. I said "it's" I should have said "I need"

    Not quite. I told him £30 a day. Anyway, on this occasion, I've decided to learn from it and be clearer in future.

    Mardy Customer

    I stated £30 a day. Looking back I should probably have been more iron clad about renting from me. Looking at it, I'm going to accept that I may lose the profit on this one. I'm going to explain to the customer that what he thinks is fair means me working for nowt which was never my intention...

    It was by text. He had his quote but then he said hurry up. I said I can't unless you want to pay for a dehumidifier and they're £30 a day. He said do it. And now he wants my discount.

    Simple. He went to the hire shop and they told him £30 a day hire for 3 days get the rest of the week free. So now he thinks he's been unfairly billed.

    Mardy Customer

    I understand that the quote was the quote but more or less the question rephrased is - do you think the £90 on a thousand quid job is worth the pissing contest?

    One of those days.

    Couldn't blame her for that.

    Mardy Customer

    I quoted him £580 plus plumbing. He asked me for a dehumidifier to speed the job up. I quoted him £30 a day and it was at the job 6 days. £180. But now he has my bill and he doesn't want to pay £180 because he knows I paid £90. So he feels I've pulled the wool and he's digging his heels in.

    Mardy Customer

    Customer has been behind me and isn't happy about what he feels is overcharging him on a dehumidifier. Basically I quoted him £30 a day for it and he's found that I'll only have paid for the first 3 days when the machine was on the job 6, so the way he figures, my price is £90 heavy. It's...

    Probe into ethnicity of vile gangs

    You couldn't be more wrong. The victims of the p**i nonces thought they were people's girlfriends. That's a huge part of why the authorities found it all so impenetrable that they gave up. We had all this months ago. It's why @gps blew up and f**k*d off.

    Probe into ethnicity of vile gangs

    It's actually two different types of nonces. If you watch any of the Catch-a-Nonce programmes you'll see that Muslims are proportionately represented. The gangs that made the news weren't of that type at all and it was the inaction of the apparatus that drew the real fury. Plus, those...
