They could just as well be of any other race and talking about any other group than themselves or even of their own race but from a different place with different accent. Why do you single out white people as racist? I believe that in itself actually makes you the racist. Are you by chance of a minority group in the place where you live and if so do you have a tendency to call anyone a racist because you find comfort in the victim mentality? I would encourage you to think about striving to make yourself a better person than those you disagree with instead of trying to tear them down.

That might well be. I believe I vaguely remember that. I much like what you normally post so don't take this as an insult but I would equally encourage you too to strive to be a better person than the one you disagree with rather than stoop to name calling.

I bet it made her even angrier as I left without changing my tone once. I think she was the one trying to con me. I relish the day I have more volume of calls just to ditch them the first second I hear their accents.
Same thing as my first post, just worded differently

Ps: perhaps you were already thinking the same thing as nowhere in my post did I call anyone a racist.

yes you are, you like to stir the pot and see what comes to the top...agreed people from all walks of life come here either to watch or join, and it is also try many races or religions have there quirks that they are known for..example..the irish like to drink..is that racist of me to say?? NO it is not..so by saying one race or group of people are cheap or dont pay or whatever is not racist..if it is then you are free to explain how it is....ill give you another example, many people dont want to work for lgbt people, but I have found they are some of the better paying and loyal customers, so is that racist???

Yesterday I had to go to a 4th/6 floor condo. The woman said on the phone the faucet was not installed correctly and the AC drain had been plugged. I had to drive around looking for the right building in the maze of street on the property grounds and all the building look the same, trying to find visitor parking, gathered all my stuff on dolly, walked across the lot, waited at the buzzer downstairs, waited for the elevator, walking along hallways to find the right door....

I get there and see the kitchen faucet was tightened the wrong way so that it couldn't reach the left side of the double sink. Looking underneath I saw the AC drain line capped, no branch for it on the drain and the sink drain had been replaced with abs instead of pvc.

I tell her I needed to replace the drain pipe with pvc to conform to code because if I touch it, it's my butt on the line if the building catches on fire. I also tell her that the work wasn't done by a plumber. I tell her I would need to get that pipe as it is seldomly needed.

She says she's refusing the job and it's going to cost that much and its the realtors who got someone to do that less than 2 weeks ago and she paid for a new counter and plumbing bla bla bla. Did she expect charity work?

Do I need to tell people if they call me out that if they refuse the work I'll be charging a minimum hour. It would get old quick for the few times a situation comes up like this.

since it wasnt technically an estimate call at the time you scheduled to go, you should have told the people its a billable service call to trouble shoot her problems, that sounds better than " I gota take a look" , then she would be prepared to pay something even if the work wasnt done.. you gota dazzle them with bull$hit sometimes...

Lately I was thinking of changing my formula to service call fee and hourly rate.

Until then I could also say on the phone a minimum one hour fee in any circumstances. However it doesn't explain a lot and there will be confusion, it sounds too hard to comprehend. Maybe one hour minimum fee if work is done or not. It's quick to the point and understandable. What do you think?
