I had to write a pretty unkind e-mail to my contractor today about how I was losing faith in him. The reason I felt that I had to do this was because he said he was going to come to my house today, and by noon, he still wasn't there.
It's been weeks since any work has been done. I'd like to know how can a contractor take my money and then not do the work. I asked him that in my e-mail to him.
I remember when I hired him. I probably did it way too fast in all my enthusiasm. I thought I read him as an honest man who would do a good job. I am starting to feel very strongly that I was wrong about that feeling. It is hard to admit to myself, and to others that I have made a big mistake here.
Anyway, I felt that I owed it to myself to at least tell him how I feel. The ball is now in his court. I sent that e-mail at noon today, and I am still waiting to hear back.
It's been a very depressing Monday for me.
