Insurance job on my home
It's been dreadfully mismanaged - if my Dh can get riled up over it then they must be incompetent as he gets ruffled for no man usually !

We have a chap working here and I think he is vile. He's likely to be here for at least another week and I dread him beng here. He's very rude/sexist- he mocks my work (he watches me do it at the kitchen table) When I have asked any questions or he has asked of me- he is rude, dismissive and takes the piss. If my Dh asks him anything (Dh incidentally doesn't know the difference between a self tapping screw and his elbow) grin

I've had enough today. He's taken the piss out of my home and told me his home is full of fabulous quality wood/leather/marble/insert matching carpets and curtains item here.

No my home isn't full of Porcelenosa stuff and the like and I don't have matching, spotless stuff- FFS I'm wondering if the insurance company would agree to replacing him (he's an approves supplier)

You can try and let th know why. Knobhead.

CaspersBlanket Tue 08-Mar-16 15:37:26

I dread them telling him and him being allowed to continue.

Alternatively I dread everything being left until "another supplier can continue" it's taken us so many months of wrangling I DREAD a huge delay but ugh!

How much longer will job take?

CaspersBlanket Tue 08-Mar-16 15:41:13

At least 7 more working days

shutupandshop Tue 08-Mar-16 15:43:54

Can you be out or grin and bear the idiot?

RitaVinTease Tue 08-Mar-16 15:44:55

If the insurance company hired him, phone and complain about his snotty attitude. You dont feel comfortable with him in your home due to his conduct. So tell them.

He's an entitled nobber.

Is the insurance company paying this man or his company directly?

CaspersBlanket Tue 08-Mar-16 15:51:29

No way am I leaving him in my home. He picks up and inspects stuff whilst I'm here and has pointed to washing drying on the rads. (Sports bras)He gives me the creeps! He'd be upstairs inspecting stuff if left!

I've had a gut full and he's only been here two days <<cats bum face>>

CaspersBlanket Tue 08-Mar-16 15:52:06

I'm not paying him
It's all being managed through the insurers

TheCountessofFitzdotterel Tue 08-Mar-16 15:57:01

He is behaving inappropriately and clearly lacks awareness of boundaries, which is why your spidey senses are tingling. I think you need to ring the company and tell them. Comments on your bras are really not on and not within the bounds of normal tradesman chat.

BoomBoomsCousin Tue 08-Mar-16 16:00:23

With that kind of attitude to your face I'd be really concerned about the quality of work he was doing. Is it specialised? Could you tell if he was doing a poor job? If you couldn't tell, report him to insurance now and insist on someone new, regardless of the wait. Otherwise, maybe record him and then report after the fact if the abuse is preferable to the hassle of getting someone new.

Call the insurance company, you might have a bit of a wait but will be worth it. This guy clearly needs a talking to by his employer re boundaries and behaviour..... Do not envy you dealing with this. Good luck.

MyLocal Tue 08-Mar-16 16:01:12

I would contact the insurance company immediately and give several examples of his inappropriate behaviour and say that you don't want him back.

ClaudetteWyms Tue 08-Mar-16 16:02:02

YANBU. Get this horrible man out of your house now - ring your insurers and ask for someone else. He is being completely inappropriate and you are uneasy in your own home. He should not be touching your stuff, at all, or making any personal comments, urgh. Please get him out!

Cel982 Tue 08-Mar-16 16:02:47

Absolutely phone the company and complain. Comments about your bras are completely inappropriate and the insurance company will not want to be implicated in the sexual harassment suit you will be forced to file...

WhereYouLeftIt Tue 08-Mar-16 16:03:50

I'd be on to the insurers and getting them on to him.

LeaLeander Tue 08-Mar-16 16:05:20

Ugh, call the insurance company and get him out of there now.

I'd consider changing my locks as well and make the insurer pay for it. Who knows what he is contemplating as he creeps around there making sexist, personal comments.

GoblinLittleOwl Tue 08-Mar-16 16:06:49

Report him for his rude, sexist, mocking comments; you You don't have to put up with that, and his company probably don't know. Just remind him that no-one is indispensable.
I reported the man who came to install my dishwasher for his rudeness about the previous one; yes it was a rustbucket, falling to pieces, (albeit still working), that was why I replaced it. I didn't need his opinion

CaspersBlanket Tue 08-Mar-16 16:07:41

They will get back to me tomorrow which means he will be here in the morning confused

I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place - it's taken so long to get anything done - now we see progress and get Pervo McHandy cocking it up.

Yep it's specialised.

Am not a pushover and tempted to tell him to fuck off. Insurers will love that (any excuse to stall works)

CaspersBlanket Tue 08-Mar-16 16:09:59

I'm trying to work, I don't care if your brother own strip clubs in Mallorca (couldn't make this shit up)


DH is staying here tomorrow. Just texted him.

SuburbanRhonda Tue 08-Mar-16 16:10:28

I had this problem with a workman in my home who was racist.

I wanted to get rid of him when it became obvious, but he was halfway through tiling my bathroom so I bottled it.

However, I did advise my Asian NDNs, who asked for his details as they neede someone to refit their bathroom, to look elsewhere as his work was of a poor standard (it wasn't).

SuburbanRhonda Tue 08-Mar-16 16:11:53

Pervo McHandy

Bear in mind insurer will be a member of the ABI for a start. In a world where prices are cut to the bone (yes !) insurers take their reputation very seriously.

CaspersBlanket Tue 08-Mar-16 16:12:00

Dh has told me to record him being vile

Perhaps I can do this for leverage with insurers?
