[quote author=SonOfWillieThePimp link=board=general;num=1051276072;start=0#0 date=04/25/03 at 06:07:52]Had any of you a bad experience with a flake?<br><br>About 2 years ago I got the key from my new house. It was just build from scratch so I had to arrange a lot! My bathroom and toilets were still unconnected, I wanted a floorheater in the bathroom and some electricity had to be fixed and I couldn't do any of that. My brother, who lives a block away from me, knew a flake who had done some stuff for him and he gave me the phone number. I called him, explained all of it and he said "OK! I'll be there in a couple of days." 2 weeks later he finally came, he was talking most of the time and he said that all of it would cost 1500 Euro (I asked him because I was, understandably, on a tight budget). Weeks went by, he occasionally came over, did 5 minutes of work and coffee'd a lot of time, made a lot of mistakes (He drilled through some walls after he promised it wasn't needed ~just when I finished wall-papering~, instead of using copper pipes for my floorheater he used a crappy little tube for a lot of money) and at the end of it all he charged me 3400 Euro!!!!  >:( >:( >:( >:( >:( >:(<br><br>I was pissed off, to say the least....[/quote]<br><br>Did they charge you double for sunday...???<br>

Alan Thicke: ''Now Frank, for those of us who have seen you as some kind of guru over the years, that's a kind of nihilistic assesment of music. Where's the hope ?''
Frank Zappa: ''Well, there isn't any...''
