I feel like sending an e-mail to my contractor. Just two words. Your fired!. How long will it take him to figure out that I am upset with him? How long will it take him to realize that I am not happy with the job that he is doing? Or should I say, not doing at this point in time. Perhaps, I am being impatient. Perhaps this is normal contractor behavior. I realize that he is not, physically, doing the work himself and he has to depend on other people.
Right after we got the permit, a lot got done the first 10 days. Since then nothing but talk. Talk about how to do the stairs, but no work on those stairs. I also had a few subcontractors here talking about electrical, and plumbing, and heating, but again all talk.
Yes, I want to send that e-mail to the contractor and fire him. Of course, I can't do that. He has a lot of my money at this point in time, and I am at his mercy. I hate being at his mercy, and there are moments I regret ever starting this whole process. I am sure that I am not the only one who has hired a contractor and thought that.
It would be a great April Fool's Day joke, if I only had the nerve to do it.
