Nothing new to add at the moment though, but the previous thread is almost at capacity.

Have you had a minute in all this to celebrate that you will soon have proper electrics? 🤣

I thought this was going to be a warning thread about how fires can start.

Not that type of fire, eh Mr Sparky 🙄

Good luck with what you need to do, IvyPlant.

I think you've coped very well, particularly given you want the job finished and tested properly. It will be interesting to hear what his explanation is!

Hope you manage to resolve things productively. Think you were given a hard time in the previous thread, OP.

Hang on...he's potentially dragging this out to Saturday...the cheeky sod.

Poor bloke 😉
He'll be carrying them home in a small paper bag by the time @IvyPlant and her MN support group have finished with him. 🤭

I was worried the other one would fill up and I’d miss it! I’ll get popcorn while I’m out later. Good luck!!

Thanks for the new thread. Can't believe the amount of posters on the old one essentially suggesting hes done nothing wrong by inviting a random person into your home!

I was waiting for a sorry tale about a house fire.

I very much think the spark isn't that hot!

More a damp squib...

Can’t wait to see how this plays out.
Incidentally, if anyone could tell me how to follow / watch a thread without having to post in it, I’d be grateful.

I’m feeling awful for his wife and family. I hope she becomes a mn if she’s not already and gets lots of LTB and Ducks Ducks Ducks assistance. If he’s guilty as charged of course. Mustn’t assume.

@iratepirate theres a little arrow at the top right of the thread. When you click it gives you the option to “watch thread”.
But it won’t come up on your “threads I’m on” list - only your “watching” list.

OP, make sure you get all of your certificates before you pay him, otherwise you might not receive them once you've confronted him.

Thank you! 💕 I’m still fairly new here and don’t know where any of that is, but will have a little look when I’m on my next break.

Sorry too many posts to go through. Have you caught them shagging on your kitchen table or bed yet? I'd show him a quote from a cleaner and deduct it from his pay 😂
