I’m going to attempt to do as my son-in-law suggested and “grow a pair”. I have learned at the end of our first year of marriage that my husband and I are both just really nice people. The problem with that is that other people (contractors) will take every advantage they can of our good nature.
It has taken more than 2 weeks to get even close to finishing our driveway project. They finally came back and removed concrete and dirt from the yard last Friday leaving the yard a wreck. The siding on the house was damaged and now has a dent and a hole in it. We have a patch across the top of the drive that doesn’t match the rest of the concrete and is not very aesthetically pleasing. Now we are being asked to pay an additional $400.00 for dirt removal. Neither of us thinks that it is our responsibility because it was not included in the contract. However, neither of us is assertive enough to stand up to the contractor.
So…..I’m going to try to get my mean face on and meet with the contractor this evening to get this project settled.
Wish me luck!
