First off, I want to thank you for your ear.
Today was pretty rough.
For the first time in my life, I asked someone not to come back and finish up a job. (It was actually the tiling part of the new tub surround in the master bath.)
The work was simply ‘not good enough.’ (I can hear the lyrics, “We’re not gonna take it! No! We’re not gonna take it! We’re not gonna take it anymore!!”)
I guess after you’ve had a master tile guy who views his work as an art and science, you just can’t go back to ‘just OK.’
(There was one part today that fit into the ‘I can’t believe you think I’d accept that’ CATEGORY.)
Yes. I got really upset — and I picked up the phone and called the guy’s boss — and George had to get behind me and tell me I was doing the right thing. (Gosh, he was really a saint today.)
I sent photos of the ‘poor work’ to the company and explained where I saw the problems.
Then a few hours later we scheduled a master tile guy to come give us an estimate to complete the work.
So, yes, a slight detour, but I feel like we are back on track and we’ll be so much happier. Just a little while longer, just a little while longer.
And cheers to those trades folk that do ‘AMAZING’ work. You are rare birds.
