Alright guys you know you have a bad customer when they say....:laughing:


You know I don't want to get any permits, right. So make sure you don't include that in your estimate.


My uncle is in this bussiness so he knows what it should cost!


I already priced the materials out, about $1300 should cover them. (it was for a 24'x12' deck:laughing:)


So what are some good ones you guys have heard?

I replaced the lockset on the front door of the apartment I was renting from my great grandfather and he said "How much did that cost? About 10 bucks?" .... :blink:

I do give the guy credit for being very clear about what he wanted. ;)
