Don't need the work

It's happened to us again. A tradie not bothering to turn up for a job we'd booked him in for.

It wasn't a big job, just putting a tv antenna socket into a room that didn't have one. But the tradie knew what the job was, quoted what he wanted for it and gave us a time he could do it.

So we made a point of being home at the appointed time. We waited...and waited...called his mobile and left a message on voicemail.

Nothing. He completely ignored us.

It's a common problem and I really don't get it.

They pay to run ads in the local paper. They quote for and take the job. They fit it into their schedule, giving you a date and time. Then they just don't turn up to do the job and collect the payment for it.
