It's exactly the reason I take pics, before, during and after. Some places I take over 30 pictures. I label them them each night and put them in my PC. I already sent a set to the association when the woman with the wall hung toilet filed a complaint. The lawyer was astonished about receiving pictures, seems like they never had contractors do that before.

I know the people who receive the complaints aren't plumbers as they're just people looking for a job and take the customer's word like sacred text. I bet they don't even know what a wall hung toilet looks like. They just shovel the crap up the hill. Hopefully they won't do like last time and have me go up there again. Or else I think I'll file a complaint on them under their ethic codes, we'll see how they respond to that! I bet that would be a first!

I talked to the lawyer yesterday and I can't be charged if I go to someone's house and decide to leave before they sign the work order. I always ask them to show me what needs to be done before I have them sign the work order. So the next person who starts to complain when I come in, the house looks old or run down or the person looks at me funny I'm out of there. She told me if you start working you can't quit unless they die, go bankrupt or something major. Even if they try to extort me, insult me in the process I'm still obligated to finish.
wana bet you cant stop and leave.....I have chest pains and must goto hospital..bye....then you can make up any story you want to tell the wackos...like you had a heart attack and cant do any work for months, and you will let them know when your avail again...

I wish I was able to come up with lines like this. I bet the wacko would file a complaint and I'd have to show a doctor's note just like in little school.

Half of my scrap pile has silicone and roofing tar.. and pl premium all over thinking it would hold a leak...

One house we did the guy used pl premium to glue copper water together... it held for like 10 years.

you got to be fast on your feet and think ahead for an excuse to get the hell out of the house and into your truck......

I have had a few dangerous encounters over the years that I look back on today and realize I was waaay too polite to the nuts and I could have gotten hurt or dead..... The stories are too long to go into..... I can think of about 5 of them that are burned into my soul....

I can say that the body cam or phone recording the conversation is a great idea especially if it is a female who might claim anything went down after you leave the house......and then you are automatically guilty....

Write a few lines in "word" every day and at the end of the week you can publish it. Sometime that's what I do for my stories here.

Or use your cell phone and the google microphone and it types as you speak. Something like the taptalk. and cut and paste. Or something like that, the young bucks here do it all the time.

Me I'm old school and type with my fingers.

sometimes you have to think out of the box, usually some personal tragedy will get you off the hook and the crazy customer will feel bad for you, you just have to have the scenario in your mind and be part actor to pull it off...

years ago I looked at a bathroom remodel that someone started and they used roofing tar to seal the floor of the shower, and the contractor was going to tile over it....I ran away as fast as I could from that one..
