Needless to say...

The landscape contractor didn't show up yesterday. I sent him an email mid-morning that included his original statement that they'd be here on the 4th. Last evening, he answered. He said he was sorry, but they already had an appointment for the 4th. Yeah, I thought, mine! So he says they'll be here next Monday sans faute (without fail). You'll forgive me if I don't hold my breath.

This was about a week ago.

I noticed another few hours of hand-picking going on in the vineyards out back yesterday. I didn't know there were many grapes left, but apparently there are. They must be close to being done, though.


  1. I hate when people say they’d do something and they don’t.
    The grapes look small. Are they?

  2. So frustrating (and angering). And it seems you don’t have options. They already had an appointment on the 4th? Was that an apology? He sounds like a jerk. I hope he finally shows up, does the work well, and that you never have to deal with him again.

  3. What happened to my name not automatically appearing?

  4. Would it be out of line to remind workmen a week in advance of expecting their arrival?

  5. chm, yes, those are small. There were much bigger grapes on other vines.

    mitch, I don't think he's a jerk. But he could be a little more communicative.

    sillygirl, I see your name. Not sure what happened. We did trade emails 4 weeks before. I thought we were good to go!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
