The ultimate revenge for a guy like that would be to form it up, tell him to order 10 yards for delivery at 7am the next morning, and then not show up. Ohh, and make sure they put some accelerator in the concrete......

I'm keeping an eye on these ads. Yesterday I twisted my back. I might have to take one of these uncontracted HO cheapo jobs. Get their homeowners insurance to pay the docs bills rather than my workmans comp. I'll lift one bag of cement than fall down and lay there screaming for an ambulance. Then they can see how much money they saved...

I emailed her told her she'd never find anyone willing to do it for that price.

Man some people just don't have a clue what is a fair price to pay for such work. I see crap like that on CL all the time and it just gets under my skin.

I also can't stand to see the guys post ads on CL looking for work that will work for terribly low rates.

I did a job for some longtime friends of mine who are probably among the most frugal people on the planet. They're also picky on top of that. I did their whole house in bamboo flooring for a mere 600 bucks. I gave them the deal of lifetime and told them that. Now they want me to paint the whole thing, ceilings, walls and trim for 1000. Not happening, the killer deals are over. I'll give a little friendly discount, but the work for nearly nothing deals are over.

and then when he fudges it up, that's when it's our turn, at the proper rate. :thumbup:

...coupled with cost to repair his shoddy job...it'll remain fudged until the home gets sold.

I think I met the poster of that Craigslist ad, or maybe his brother.

Guy wants 3,000 sq. ft. of Hypnum Moss lawn for a shaded garden.

Moss: $56,000 for sheet Hypnum
Site prep: $3,800
Labor to install moss: $14,500
Total:$74,300

Fairly reasonable for the amount of work involved. He called me and asked if I could order the moss for him at my cost, finance it, and deliver it. He wants to put an ad on CL and hire 2 laborers at $8.00/hour to put it in. So he wants me to just bring him the moss and not make any money whatsoever on this deal.

How friggin cheap do you have to be to gamble $56,000 worth of product dying on a half ass install to save a few bucks?

He did pay for the estimate though. So he's not a total tool.
