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? 🤣

Narcalert · 22/09/2022 12:43

wow!

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!

3ShotsOfEspresso · 22/09/2022 12:46

OP, this thread is a true delight. I am beyond excited about THE REVEAL.

RosieLemonadeAndSugar · 22/09/2022 12:49

Love the new title 😂

Americano75 · 22/09/2022 12:50

I think we're all here for this. rubs hands together

selfieseptember · 22/09/2022 12:59

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. 🤭

Thank you for the shiny new thread. Hope it all goes well

Suzi888 · 22/09/2022 13:00

🙌I’m here

Eeksteek · 22/09/2022 13:03

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!!

Pishposh99 · 22/09/2022 13:05

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...

Thanks for the new thread!

TrashyPanda · 22/09/2022 13:30

Good luck with the cheeky beggar!

iratepirate · 22/09/2022 13:31

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.

SalviaOfficinalis · 22/09/2022 13:39

@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.

TeeBee · 22/09/2022 13:39

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.

I think he will demand the full money.

heartbroken22 · 22/09/2022 13:48

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 😂
