    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Are you in the wrong job? Electricians 'have never earned more' as some make more than GBP70k a year | Daily Mail Online

    Try booking an electrician. Wait 3 months and pay £300 per day.

    And yet all the "poor" are sitting at home moaning about their lot.

    Go to ******* college and learn a ******* trade!
    Getting hold of a tradesman is a total nightmare

    I tried to get a chimney sweep, usual guy said mate you need to book 3 months in advance I'm fully booked every day until end of January. Same with two others I called, eventually found one that can do December.

    I also needed a gutter repair guy, phoned several companies, all too busy to do residential properties. Phoned a guy in the monthly newsletter posted through my door, booked for 6 months (why advertise in a monthly publication if you're booked for 6 months?!?). Eventually found a guy that can do it at the end of the week, price is double what I would have expected.

    Tried to get a guy to remove a wasps nest, phoned several companies (many promised 'same day' service), eventually found a guy had to pay double what I expected, it took him about 5 seconds to spray it with a long rod attachment, 60 odd quid.

    Pay over the odds for my annual boiler service as well because I use a company with a physical office and secretary. Paying £30 more than I need to because they answer the phone and turn up. Previous boiler guy literally didn't answer his phone for 2 months when I was trying to get him to do it.

    Absolutely nightmare every time. I'm wondering if there's actually a service I can pay for that will book tradesfolk for me.

    Whilst I agree with you - there is a theme in your e-mail which is that you felt you overpaid - twice.

    And the reason for that is if you want a quality job doing you need to pay for it.

    After all you lot are all contractors who would not get out of bed for less than £500 a day -- amiright?

    half the people in at least three of my local pubs are tradesmen.
    I have no problem getting stuff done at all.
    and they do good work for the market rate.

    you need to get out more
    Entropy is NOT what it used to be.
