Contractors suck!

Tonight, we went over to the new house to test the showers since we have not yet had the opportunity to do that. And once again, we got the contractor shaft - and the contractors weren't even there.

Downstairs, we fired up the shower, which seemed to work fine. But Jess mentioned to me that he noticed that the underside of the shower seat didn't appear to be grouted and caulked. That's because it wasn't. Idiot, the fuckup contractor, had never caulked after the seat was installed. So we have water running down the seat and up under into the area where there was no caulk! I was steaming.

So we went to check the upstairs seat. It had been caulked, so it appeared to be ready to go. We started up the water, but it wouldn't get hot. Gee, wonder why? The temperature dial would hardly move at all, and when we tried setting it to 110, it wouldn't get above 70. So this was the fault of the plumber. Do these idiots check anything on their installations before they pronounce them done? This is really, REALLY infuriating. At the prices we have paid, there should be no stupid mistakes! Apparently, stupidity knows no price.

Wait! Did I miss something? Why do you have a chair in the shower?

Jere, certainly with all your wordly wisdom, you can figure that one out...
