Home Improvement

Today, our washing machine broke and dumped around 100 gallons onto the floor. My dad had installed crappy water valves and we couldn’t turn off the water. I called my dad and he accused me of lying. His “repairs” have now caused 5 major disasters in our home due to his shoddy and cheap work. FML

Fool me once, shame on you, Fool me twice, shame on me, ... Fool me FIVE times?!?!? C'mon, man, for fuck's sake!!!

So why do you keep telling him when things break? At some point you're the one responsible for hiring free unqualified labor.

cheap labor isn't good, and good labor isn't cheap.

It’s called: I’m disabled with a messed up back, and I’m broke due to getting screwed in my workcomp lawsuit. Here’s a life tip: don’t get hurt in Nebraska on a job. The laws are written 100% in favor of corporations. Even with a good lawyer, the judge screwed me. And no, it wasn’t my fault I got injured, my coworkers injured me. I tore up my back trying to access the water shut off, so i’m almost bedridden with tons of pain. My upper back is in agony right now. I already walk with a cane at 35 yrs old.

If you're aware that his work is cheap, shoddy, and subpar, and you haven't corrected his repairs and/or stopped letting him "repair" things, definitely YDI.

Just a thought but maybe you shouldn't let him do anything else.

ydi after the second failure you should have started calling a real repairman.
