Totally Bananas

About a MONTH ago we paid our contractor a significant amount of money to begin phase 2 of our project.  Phase 1 being removing all the trees and stumps, phase 2 being grading the yard, removing roots, leveling with fill and then finishing with topsoil and seed.  We have not yet seen any work done at ALL.  I’m LIVID.

We talked to him on Tuesday, he said someone would be here Friday.  Friday rained, ok, I understand that.  Today is bright and sunny, Monday and there is not a soul to be seen.  My poor husband has been so calm and reserved through all this, I think he might snap real soon.  The contractor has done several other jobs that we referred him on but – do you think he’d take care of the people that keep throwing his name out there????  NOOOOO. LOL.

We started this chaos the day after Easter (March) thinking we were getting an early start and would have grass growing early and be able to enjoy the lawn this summer.  At this rate, we aren’t going to be able to let the boys play on it until next spring.  I am BESIDE myself. 

So, the lesson to be learned here is – don’t judge a contractor by how cute he is.  *sigh*  He’s so very unattractive to me now!  Maybe I scared him off.  hehehe.

    That stinks your contractor is being that way. At least he was cute….why is it the cute ones that always have something missing though? 🙂
