More stress

I'm so desperate for a contractor to start Tuesday that I decided to just hire the one that I had an appointment with this morning for a consult. I wasn't even going to check his references. I figured his 18 years of experience was enough and I'd take him at whatever rate he quoted me.

Only he didn't show up to his consult with me this morning. I sat in that empty room for 30 minutes waiting for him.

When I got home there was a message from him saying he couldn't remember the address but was driving around looking for it. Welcome to what you can expect when working with contractors. Oh wait, I mean trying to hire a contractor. God forbid one of them should actually be responsible enough to even show up for the consult.

I still have no one to start the job on Tuesday. Calling a couple new leads (from friends) now.
