I just wish he would have given you a reason to punch his lights out. My latest contractor story isn't nearly as powerful. But still....I bought a leather chair from a guy on Craigs List a couple years ago (chair that was left in a model home) and found out he's a contractor---owns a small company. Since we met, I've had him do several projects for me----fair prices and decent work. But lately, he became less and less reliable, to the point of not even showing up to give me quotes----in other words, turning away easy money, since I've never gotten a price from him and NOT given him the work. Funny thing is that by not showing up (twice) for the last project request I had----I ended up finding someone else to do the work----and the project has progressed into something that is significant----really good money. He complains about not having enough work----even took a job with a larger company for a while when he wasn't doing well enough with his own business----but by not being a go-getter, he loses out on a big check.
