A Rant Where A Hump Day Poll Should Be

Not that my Hump Day Polls are that thrilling anyway but still.  So the dudes finished up smoothing the ceilings yesterday afternoon!  That's not all they did.

Oh, would you like some glooperty gloop on your door?

How about a two-fer on your banister?

Oh, let me put that bathroom light back up for you!

"It'll wash out with a wet rag" x30

and the pièce de résistance:

Oh, you mean you didn't want your two year old smoothed ceiling from the first floor completely ruined in 12 spots??  We were told they would fix it, prime it and paint it to match.  They were cleaning up and hadn't fixed the spot when the Mr told the one guy doing all of the work that he was told that would be fixed since they damaged it.  He said he'd fix it but no one told him.  The Mr just wanted him out at that point because it would be 20 minutes for the quick dry compound to dry, then 20 minutes for the primer and 20 minutes for paint.  He told him just patch it and go.  So now we have to paint the friggin' ceiling that we had no intention of painting and hope it matches.  (Even though you use the exact same paint, sometimes the sheen won't match and you have to repaint the whole thing.  Hoping to God that isn't us because I will lose it.)

That isn't even all of it.  I had to stop taking pictures or I was going to need bail money.

The rage we're both feeling right now at the three or four extra things we now have to do from the damage they caused is overwhelming and exhausting.  But if you've been here for any amount of time, you know this is to be expected because we are after all, us.

What's the last project that didn't go as planned for you?

  1. Wow, that is a lot of damage as well as a sloppy mess. I'm so sorry you're having to deal with that. With those pictures there's no way the company can justify any of that poor workmanship. NOT what you needed with this project!!

  2. It's just the disrespect felt from contractors and this is the prime example as to why we are always so hesitant to get work done. Just glad they are gone now.

  3. So typical anymore of contractors. I'm glad they got it done quickly though. It's gonna be awesome!
