  • Chieselers

    Never in my life have I had so many people try to cheisel me out of my prices. Offering me cash under the table, beer, what some other guy told them, etc., as an excuse to offer me half or less. Lady with a cast iron tub calls up at 2:00 and wants it removed today and the drain moved to accomodate a tile shower, so that her tile guy can begin the next morning. I go there the next day, it is on the third floor of the condo with concrete floors, and she offers me $300 to remove and dispose of tub plus relocate drain. It has been a while since I have laughed that hard.

              Of course now she will probably go find some unlicensed hack to do it.

                  Yea, it started out as cleaning a tub drain until she decided she would rather have a shower. I put her in touch with a qualified plumber but told her she better forget about $300. Maybe she might get it done for 3 times that if she finds someone hungry enough

                      You are right. I suppose certified would have been a better choice of words. Stir, stir, stir

                        I could be wrong, but I think the word you are searching for is licensed.
