I have seen houses like that but am fortunate that most of our customers aren't like that. I have one customer who thinks they are handy and for about a decade would try anything. Inevitably they'd end up calling us or another trade to fix the mess, but at least they had fun trying.Many members on this forum don't understand the unpleasantries and bad people I have to deal with. Some think the problem is my attitude, nope!
By the way this is only in th last 4 months, and I do not get to see their entire house for other winner stuff or even fix 99% of it.
For myself at least, the good customers and the very nice/old/cool/unique houses and buildings I see more than make up for it. It never ceases to amaze me the things I have the privilege to see inside buildings that thousands just drive by without a second glance. I get to meet some great people and hear the best stories of their lifetime.I’m so glad I’m not a service plumber. I don’t know how you guys do it. I know, I know, the money is great, but damn.
