No-oooooooooo

Well, guess what, the double-crossing (ahem, I mean double-glazing) men didn't turn up today either, nor did they ring me, so at 10 o'clock this morning I rang them. I felt rather sorry for the man who took my call. I sunk my proverbial teeth into him and would not let go. He said they couldn't send an installation team to me today as they were all out on jobs. "Oh good", I said, "at least someone's getting their windows installed today, but it's certainly not me."

They've promised me Wednesday now and they're sending two teams to make sure it's all done.Watch this space........................

Deep breath, count to ten. When I was a new and green home owner years ago, I naively arranged a home visit by a double crossing salesman. He stayed for six hours! I didn't buy his windows!

I think you were reserved bearing in mind the circumstances. I am keeping my bendy fingers double crossed for you. Good luck for Wednesday! Although I am wondering why Wednesday not Tuesday.....

Grrrrrrrrrrr. I know you wrote that you have paid a deposit. Perhaps you could be late paying the remainder of the bill:) Fingers crossed again for Wednesday. Linda xx

Ah! the joys of building work. I had to endure years of this and the builder was my husband!

Will you have a glazed expression when they finally arrive?

Hi Addy,

Why do these things never go to plan? Hope all goes well on Wednesday and by Thursday is all a bad memory.

All the best
