    Just some thicko with a paint brush doing what he was told...
    Friends kids broke the window on her porch door, it’s a double panel door with double glazed panels top and bottom, it was the outer pane of the top panel that got broken, she contacts a glazing company to arrange repair.
    A few days later she arrives home from work, there’s a note through the door from the company saying they had turned up to measure the window but, were unable to do so as she was not in...
    THE LETTERBOX THEY POSTED THE NOTE THROUGH WAS 1” BELOW THE CLEARLY OBVIOUS BROKEN WINDOW...

    Bloke came round after a storm, I had lost 9 tiles on the roof, yes it was when the big tornado hit many of us. He said we needed a new roof and quotes me for such. I phoned said why do I need a new roof, because the tiles can't be lifted to replace broken ones, too spongey. Said he would bring quote round next day. I replaced them and just finished when he arrived. "got the quote for new roof", yeah ta got the local paper here for your new job.

    He thought he would pull a fasty, bought one down that was half broke, wet as hell from 5 days of rain. They are made porous for that purpose and absorb then dry out, he broke it in front of me. Thought waster I will let you do a quote and use your petrol bringing it round, 8.5k to do whole roof including 1600 for scaffold. 800 For my place, do one sunshine.
