I'm was broke, now I'm just poor.

When you're poor, you have nothing.
When you're broke, you can't afford to keep what you have.:whistling

That my mom is almost in tears from the roofers doing her house. She lives out in the country and the company that sold her the job subbed it to a bunch of apparent rednecks. It's been a week and they aren't done. Yesterday they showed up at 10 and left at 2. It's supposed to rain this afternoon and they haven't tarped the house. I'm going up there this afternoon to see just what on earth is going on.

I'll give the classic CT answer.

That's what you get for hiring the cheapest contractor.

What does the contract say about tarps.

Oh I'm pretty sure my mom did hire the cheapest, and there is probably no contract. My family doesn't get it like we do. However, it's my mom. Soooo [emoji35]

One of my real pet peeves. Just hate when outlets and such get painted , also the boxes filled with excess mud. http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016...15f531c640.jpg

Better thing to is to cover it in the first place before texture or painting. But hey the next guy will take care of it so why bother.

The story is a grand one with this stoner or drunk old roofer. Works about 3 hours every 3rd day or so. Hasn't even finished the front of the house and it's been 10 days since they started. And there may have been a drug deal. They left one day and a few minutes later a pickup truck showed up and the guy picked something out of the ditch and took off. My parents live on a dead end. No traffic at all.

They are roofers, of course they do drugs...but that's no excuse for shoddy workmanship.
