Wife & kids and her parents have gone to their to-be retirement house near Cognac, I'll be joining them on thursday. They arrived yesterday to discover the bathroom fitter they paid just over a year ago still hasn't finished, and is planning on completing the work while they're there. Gave them a laundry list of excuses as to why he couldn't do it any other time in the last 12 months, then told them he didn't need their work anyway because so many people want him to work for them.

What an absolute chief. They're all too polite to question his arseholishness. Fortunately, I'm not, and will be mentioning a few things to him when I see him friday.

Apparently that is quite common in France. I've heard some right nightmare stories about getting tradesmen to be reliable and finish a job. I even knew someone who paid for English tradespeople to come over and do some work, paying for their accommodation.

I'm sure you don't need me to point it out Dan, but I've highlighted the key issue here. Too many people are feckless ****ers who respond only to money and are non conscientious enough or have enough personal pride to do properly a job they said they'd do.

Ah, meant they'd paid for the hardware and some of his time but haven't paid the majority of the money yet, although apparently he kept asking them at various times in the past 12 months for more dough.

He's a Brit ex-pat, which is why he's supposedly in demand. I said at the time we should consider sending Parkesy & Son over for a month or so to do the job properly. In fact, it's looking like they'll be getting Phil Jr. to do a bunch more work for them after this ass-clown has finished. Cheaper to fly him over to stay onsite for a few weeks, and they know they'll get a proper job done.

When you've eaten lunch and you're still exactly as hungry as you were before you'd eaten it.

Don't worry, I'm not hungry any more. Not since someone decided to microwave a plate of scrambled eggs and FISH in the offis kitchen.

I'm outta here for at least half an hour. That is just rank.

Because they need to be able to share photos of their lunch and brag to each other about how their paleo diets are helping them with their "gains". And that's just the dorises.

Eggs and mackerel together???

I have a colleague who eats roll mops every day in the staff room. Just the sight of them makes my stomach turn.

Mackerel is delicious!

Sardines on toast in the morning, with a bit of pepper and salad cream and a cuppa tea is a winner too. :thup:
