    Catering to home contractors...

    Ok so, we have guys working on our house for about a week--week and a half now. They were hired to do over the roof, recement the driveway, put down new tiles on our patio, clean the bricks, etc. Well day one dudes came ringing the bell asking for coffee. My mom obliged since it was their first day. Well like she form bad habits cause everyday they ring the bell asking for coffee. I told her okay once, twice is cool but not every day. What we look like Dunkin Donuts. She told me I am not being nice, what do you guys think? Mind you she she has to stop getting dressed for work in the morning to go make their coffee.

    I've done stuff like that before in the past....dudes working on my fence once in the hot summer (some spanish dudes) so I bought them a couple bottles of Snapple.

    Sounds like these contractors starting to take advantage of the situation though.

    Yeah that is normal, cause when they were working on the roof it was hot as all hell. I went and bought a couple Gallons of water and cups for them. But every morning so man...come on. I told my mother she just catering to them because she afraid they are Al Queda (they are from Pakistan). See how yuh on IMIX corrupting my thinking. LOL

    She should make a pot of coffee and have it ready if she doesn't want to disrupt her morning routine of getting ready for work.

    But dem guys sound real greedy. You don't want to be rude and make it the job into a drawn out process. contractors could be fcuked up sometimes and you don't need the headache.

    eh heh..is like feeding ah stray animal...they keep coming back for more...they need to do like every other working person and walk with their stuff for work. or at least wait for the owner of the home to offer you something to drink or eat.

    Hey at least your contractors are on time and hell

    THEY SHOWED UP!



    Although its hard to be petty, the situation you mentioned is annoying.

    sometimes you have to act out of your character and hail as I hear u trinis say: "haul ur mudda cvnt and get to work"

    But yes it is such a challenge dealing with Contractors.
    Leaving thier lunch trash around.
    not showing up on time
    not making planned progress on projects

    The only driving force u must use against them is them getting paid.
