DESCRIPTION OF WORK
HIRED RICHARD TO CUT HOLES IN FLOOOR FOR FORCED AIR FURNACE VENTS. IN KITCHEN HE BROKE A TILE BECAUSE HE BROUGHT A GRINDER WITH A WORN OUT  WHEEL , TOTALLLY NEVER GOING TO WORK  SO I GOT MY  SKILL SAW WITH A DIAMOND BLADE  AND HE USED IT TO CUT THROUGH THE TILE, HE BROKE THE TILE WITH THE GRINDER FIRST AND DIDN'T OFFER TO REPLACE IT . THEN IN THE BEDROOM THERE IS ALSO A SMALL BATH , ALL HE HAD TO DO WAS CLOSE THGE BATHROOM DOOR AND THE DUST FROM CUTTING THROUGH THE TILE WOULD HAVE BEEN CONTAINED . HE LEFT IT OPEN AND I HAD A TILE DUST MESS ON EVERYTHING , BEDDING , IN THE DRAWERS , ON EVERYTHING. I HAD TO CLEAN EVERYTHING .  I COULD HAVE SCREAMED @ HIM BUT I NEVER SAID A WORD. LATER HE SAID SINCE WE USED TO BE FRIENDS THAT HE COULD PUT IN MY NEEW GARAGE DOOR FOR ME . HE PUT IT IN ALL RIGHT , CHARGED ME $200. AND IT DIDN'T WORK @ ALL. I CALLED BROWN'S GARAGE DOOR AND HE CHARGED $ 50. AND FIXED IT SO IT OPENED WITH THE ELECTRIC OPENER. THEN I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE THE MISERABLE CUSS ANOTHER CHANCE SO I CALLEDHIM TO REMODEL MY GIRLFREINDS SMALL BATHROOM . HE AND HIS SON CAME OVER AND LOOKEC @ IT . SAID WE CAN DO IT AFTER DEER SEASON WHICH IS IN LATE NOVEMBER. I  NEVERT HEARD FROM HI MAGAIN. I CALLED AND LEFT A MESSAGE ASKING  WHAT WAS GOING ON, HE RESPONDED BY SAYING I WAS HARASSING HIM. TOTALLY BOGUS. YOU HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING WHEN YOU ARE TOTALLY WRONG.  I CALL HIM DR. BECKER, EVER SEE TED DANSON TV PLAYING THAT VERY CRANKY DOCTOR ? WELL THAT IS RICHARD VANCE. MISERABLE IN EVERY WAY. WHAT HE DOESN'T UNDERSTAND IS BEING NICE IS FREE. I  SOLD HE AND HIS SON SEVERAL ITEMS VALUED @ OVER A$1500 DOLLARS FOR FAR LESS BECAUSE I THOUGHT WE WERE FRIENDS. HE IS BITTER BECAUSE I LIVE IN A $ 400,000.00 LAKE HOME AND I  AM RETIRED AND HE LIVES IN A $50,000. HOME AND IS STILL WORKING. HE EVEN COMMENTED IT MUST BE NIOCE TO WATCH TV ALL DAY. HE IS JEALOUS. A VERY CHILDISH JEALOUS MAN. IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE JEALOUS OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE MORE THAN YOU, THEN YOU WILL NEVER BE HAPPY BECAUSE YOU WILL ALWAYS FIND SOMEONE WITH MORE THAN YOU. PETTY JEALOUSY. THE GUY IS SO CRABBY IT HAS COST HIM  DEARLY OVER THE YEARS. BOTH PERSONALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY. TIM ROCHE

SERVICE PROVIDER RESPONSE

The work that Tim wrote and talks about is over a 2 year time period. I cut 7 or 8 holes in his floor for vents. He ran his own shop vac while I cut. Two years ago, I built him a garage, he ran into the door with his truck. Putting in a new door is not free. We had trouble with the opener. I told him to call Mr. Brown. We built him decks and stairways down to the lake and to his shop with no probl...
