Service wire thru attic


Cry me a river. I've had DDD for the past 27 years. It hurts. Sometimes it hurts like hell. I don't whine about it and use it as an excuse. Life sucks sometimes, deal with it.

I don't allow you to set the value of my work. If I did, a lot of people would be in a bad situation. You have no idea what material cost and you have no idea what it cost to operate a buisness. Your hillbilly economics have no basis in reality.

You've whinned more then me about how much you THINK your worth, reading between the lines. Never heard of DDD unless it's dead d___ disease. You said "Cry me a river" then turn right around and contradict yourself by telling me you've DDD as if someone would care. Well my behind bleeds for ya, NOT.

You won't allow me to set the value of your work? Apparently your not working anyway since your able to post replies all day.
Maybe your OVERPRICED?! LOL!!!

And once again your clueless because I HAVE had my own business and I DO know the cost of material. The cost of healthcare shut mine down.
The price I keep telling you DID NOT include material.
Dang it man, READ will ya?!
I personally know FedEx aircraft mechanics and they've a HECK of a lot more responsibility then you safety wise and they don't make but $39 hr. Yeah, plus benefits but we're talking straight out $ per hour, right? Right. And if you don't like the cost of running a business, stop whinning and GET OUT.
And what does the price of material have to do with this?

Your waaaaay out in left field on this because you (well...maybe), as a smart business owner, PASS THAT COST ON TO THE CUSTOMER so quit whinning about material cost because it's not even relevant.

Was "hillbilly economics" (whatever that means. apparently you know.) your lame attempt at humor??? With that comment you've decided to take this to another level and tried to make it personal so...... bite me, then go change a light bulb you overpriced hick IF you can find someone stupid enough to pay what you THINK your worth.
I'm done, I'm through, 'cause your not worth MY time, and I'm REASONABLY PRICED.
Have a nice evening Gomer

Again with the victim role. "I am disabled due to Degenerative Disk Disease" and "the cost of healthcare shut me down".


Whatever pal. Don't get your blood pressure up though because I actually enjoy this part

I find this rather amusing to read threads like this where the OP gets upset after a professional tells them to hire a real pro to do the work. After having been a member of these forums for the past several months and reading countless threads, I have found its pretty easy to tell (for the most part) when someone can handle the job themselves or when they should call in a real electrician to do the job.

To the OP (if he is even around anymore) it doesn't help to badmouth the very people that can actually provide you with some help here. The only thing its likely to do is make them not want to help you even more. Yeah the economy sucks, we are ALL dealing with it the best we can. But there is a difference between doing it cheap and doing it right. If you can't do it right, then there is no sense in doing it at all. You not only risk your life but you put your families life at stake as well. There is a time when calling in a pro is the ONLY answer.

Agree theatretch, this is one of the most helpful sights I have found on the internet. The way I see it if you are asking a question in this forum it is because you do not know it all. Why even ask a question and waste people's time when you have already made up your mind on what you are going to do anyway. I ask questions, try to digest what I read and when I still "don't get it" I ask more questions. Am always happy to get a response (wether is what I want to read or not) and always thank people for their time. I think time is valuable and when someone takes some of their time to read and respond to your questions you should be grateful. We can always disagree without being disagreeable. On the other hand, Scuba always makes me laugh. He is a funny guy. Where else can I get knowledge while having fun?
