GRRRRRRRRRR!

Burns.My.Ass. How can they think they will get word of mouth business by ripping off women? I think you should post their names and their vagina surcharge online for the edification of All of Tulsa's women.

I hope you gave neither of them your business and called another contractor for both jobs.

What they all said. Is this a southern thing? I have a hard time imagining my friends or my aunts putting up with that shit.

Lynette I hope you were your normal kind, gentle, sweet self and shoved the estimates he gave you up his ass?

Tony, I don't know if it's a southern thing or just a shitty person thing and I had a string of bad luck with these estimates. It's happened before ~ once with a plumber and another time with a heat & air outfit. Today's attempted robbery was worse than usual.

The thing is, if I'd not been able to whip a husband out from behind my back, maybe I'd have had three crazy high bids and never would have known the difference. ?? Or two high bids and a really low one that would make me suspicious?

I'm pretty much a take no shit kind of creature, even though soft hearted. Once I figure out I'm being screwed, bar the door. The three assholes who added twat tax to their estimates in this fix the fence & gutter project have heard from me today :-)

FUCK!

May I borrow your husband the next time I need some work done? Those fuckers.

It's a man's world. :(

Good for you. And yes to what Tater said. Go ahead and list names -- and call the Better Business Bureau while you're at it.

Greedy, stupid, bastardy bastards.

and another thing (still fuming), it pisses me off that some enterprising guys could get together and form a Rent A Boyfriend business or something, and actually make money at it.

I should be able to get a fair quote even if I DON'T have a boyfriend, husband, brother, dad, who has the time or lives close enough to come do the Testosterone Shuffle with some asshat of a contractor.

Great post! I always borrow a guy friend to stand by my side when someone comes to give me an estimate. Works like a charm.

Hmmmm. Rent-A-Penis! I think I've found my new calling. I may be short, but for some reason I scare people, especially in a short sleeve shirt. I knew these tattoos would come in useful eventually. Thanks more cowbell!

I had to read the comments to figure this out.

Appalling.
