Get your **** together, blind store.
It's nearly all the vendors. My municipal gig got held up 3 weeks due to merges, buyouts and the logistics of the new system.

My other job in January was a nightmare with bad product and deliveries.

My buddy did two baths at the same time in Morristown. Vanity shipped from Alaska through Wayfair. Came damaged not once but twice. Then the polished Brass widespread faucet came with a different colored spout.


It's just impossible to be efficient these days and saps your hustle out from you.

Re: Things I Hate (2)


When you send in 4 pneumatic guns for repair over a month in advance to the job you need them on.

It's now a couple months since they went in and over half way through the job I needed them on.

The repair shop sent a nail gun back quick, but not repaired.

They've told me weeks, anyday now.
Yesterday they said they were coming in today and so I arranged for jobsite delivery.

No show late morning, so I call suspecting more BS. Yep, truck didn't arrive.

They offer to buy one tool and bring it out meantime. I choose a 7/16" stapler.

They arrive a couple hours later with a 7/32.

Apparently they have 0 business repairing tools.

Maybe I'll get them before this job is over.

In the meantime, I've bought new tools and used what I had.

When they present the bill, ask them why you should pay them.

update: Just get little tractor back in garage and all hell breaks loose. Just got an advisory that most all the roads in the north half of the county are blocked.

What a crazy spring.

Why are the roads blocked? Everyone sneezing and getting in accidents. Also, it was 94 and humid as **** today... its summer.

It was hot as hell and humid here too. Plus I got the tractor stuck in muck and had to tow it out.

We've had non-stop rain and flooding so severe that it blocked/made impassable several key roads.

Re: Things I Hate (2)


Getting called out to a service ticket on a Sunday to arrive and find out some employee fixed the problem while I was driving out.

Would it kill you to call and let me know?

They then had the nerve to ask why they were getting a bill when I didn't do anything, like they somehow missed the part about my minimum rate charge.
