Another person who's on my list is the builder of our house. Here's the thing. I'm a pretty understanding person when things come up, as long as they're communicated with me. Here's something I hate: being ignored. I don't like when my emails are ignored and I don't like when my phone calls are not returned. It's very rude. So Jacob talked to our builder on Tuesday, and he told us that the roofer would be at the house today (Wednesday) to start working. When I drove by today and saw that there was no roofer, I got pretty frustrated since the house has been sitting for a week with no work and the roofing is holding stuff up. So I called our builder and he asked me to call him back in 10 minutes because he was busy. So I called back 10 minutes later, and got his voicemail, so I told him there was no one at the house, despite his promise to the contrary, and he needed to call me back. Did he? Nah. When I drive by that house tomorrow, if there isn't anyone working, WATCH OUT WORLD. I'm gonna call the realtor and the builder and go all George Costanza on them and they WILL NOT LIKE IT.
Another wang who's irritating me is the guy at the flooring place. He was supposed to call me today to let me know if he could get a sample of the cabinets to compare with the flooring and see what looks best. Obviously, since everyone in this town hates me, he didn't call, and knowing my luck, we won't be working for another month, so I'll just be stuck waiting since NO ONE ELSE THAT WORKS THERE KNOWS ANYTHING. Also, I gave him a list of appliances to look up for me so he could tell me what the cost would be to order them. Something tells me that list is stuck to a Snickers wrapper in the trash somewhere and he'll never get around to doing that. I just really don't understand how people do business up here. I get that it's a small town and people live a "slower" lifestyle, but since when does that mean people have no common courtesy or work ethic? Some one calls you, you better freaking call them back. You tell someone you're going to do something by a certain day, freaking GET IT DONE. Not that hard.
