A little frustrated

I've been SO excited the past few days because we had painters coming to do my craft room, the master bath and the rest of the upstairs hall way. When we first moved in 3 years ago, I asked my employees to recommend a good painter. One lady's boyfriend was a painter and we hired him to come over. Jeff was AWESOME now, he was always 2 hours late, but he came with a roller, a brush and a drop cloth. No taping and PERFECT lines, absolutely perfect. I tried to call him 2 weeks ago and no answer. We tried the company he worked for, no answer. I was pretty sad, let me tell you. I remember when he painted for us before, Kev's dad told us, "Quick, at those prices, have him paint everything before he dies! have him paint it twice!". We should have listened.

Now I have a new job and asked my new employees for references. I had several and the guy we went with, his wife and mom work for me. I was so excited all day and I called Kevin 4 or 5 times to get updates. The last time, Kev said that I would need to do some touch ups. I was SO disappointed when I saw the mess they left. I've been taping around the doors and repainting the past 2 evenings. Sigh... I finished the craft room tonight and am off to work on the hall way. I'll be very happy once everything is completed and I can move everything back into place.

Hopefully things will be back to normal soon!

Ugghhh....I can understand your feelings. Some people nowadays don't take pride in their work. It's a shame.
