Does Anyone Know What's Wrong With Repairpeople?

December 11, 2009

I ask this in all seriousness. My (until now lovely) furnace repairman was supposed to be here at 9am. Here it is, 5pm, and not a word. I ended up wasting a whole day of vacation time, which I would have far preferred using on something like... vacation.

I really liked this guy. Now I am mad enough to spit.

So... my question is, what is wrong with contractors, handymen and the like? Why is it that their concept of time is so different than mine? Does anyone know what the deal is? And/or what we can do about it?

(And I apolgize to all the great repairpersons out there. My neighbor is a wonderful plumber who would never do anything like this.)
