    See for work like that I would defo do that!

    99% of the time, tradies are here up to an hour, aren't our choice and do a half-arsed job for three times the price.

    Really? Lucky tradies. If I had tradies in my house for the last two weeks we would have crossed paths for about 2 hours all up. And yes, I would've ignored them in those two hours cause I was frantically catching up on domestic duties. Poor tradies who come to my house!
