One Step Forward, Two Steps Back

Duking it out with the tile company has not gone well.

While they set an appointment to be here Thursday morning to fix the tile, the owner phoned at 5:30 to cancel the appointment and to tell me that when we do reschedule, he'll be a nice guy and do whatever work that needs to be done for $66 an hour, instead of the $88 an hour he charged me to caulk for 5 hours.

Wait, what alternate universe did I step into when I pulled into my garage when I came home from work? Is he serious?

So I blew off sewing, cooking dinner, being calm, and wrote numerous totally factual bad reviews of his company and posted them on every available Internet service review site. Tomorrow I'll start sending the complaints to every County/City he's licensed to do business in, and file a charge dispute with the credit card I used to pay for the $420 caulking job. I do not take lightly to being screwed over.

Then in despearation, I called the softball buddy who originally installed the shower and he said he'd be here at 9 a.m.tomorrow to take a look and see if he can't fix things up.

Aaaarrrrrgggghhhhhhh. Will the madness ever cease?

Oh, and the new computer was never dropped of this evening so I've got to go pick it up tomorrow from DD's school at lunch time.

One day we're up, the next we're down. And yeah, I didn't win Mega Millions yesterday either. :(

  1. So sorry you are having a miserable time with the lousy tile company. Whatever happened to standing behind your work? Or taking pride in a job well done?

    What is the name of this crummy company, so I will be sure not to use them.

    ttfn :) Yuki


I appreciate and look forward to your comments. Thanks for reading. Happy quilting!
