1, it doesn't matter. That's a shitty thing to do to a neighbor! Damn, I'm lucky. I'm hospitalized right now and my neighbor is taking care of our dog and fish. He's going to be traveling the world for a year, starting this September and we are going to be checking on his place. What ever happened to having amazing neighbors that you could depend on?
How is that a shitty thing to do? Such is life. I'm sure if the neighbors' favorite show wasn't on she would've done it no problem. Like my teachers used to say, "Lack of planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on my part." OP could've got it fixed on a day they were off work.
Never trust your neighbors. I don't think I have ever spoken to mine. That being said, I can't trust them. Also, none of my neighbors are around my age which sucks because I don't have a friend who lives on the same street. I wish I did because then I would have 1 friend that I don't need a car to get to. Btw, past fml's had neighbors who were either mean or not trustworthy so um never trust your neighbor unless they are someone who you speak to all the time and no just a hello here and there, or if they are a friend from school.
I love that they don't seem to get that people have to work to pay for the items that need repair in the first place. And to make it more fun, you get the nice 4 hour gap of time that they could possibly show up. Is it that hard to include evening or weekend hours got people who don't have any options?
I know! I've had a few cases where they haven't bothered to show up at all- that cost me $200 a day to miss work and sit at home for no reason (as a casual staff member). Nice. I've found that now I just tell them that I have a German Shepherd who is prone to attack (she's not, but she leaps convincingly at the fence), and they have to give me a smaller time frame as I have to leave work to tie her up and let them in. Not sure how or why, but it dropped the time frame to 30 mins.
Many contractors have worse hours than bankers., and it is due to their work. I know we should complain, but when they have a job that can get complicated really fast, that means that a later job quickly gets pushed back. I'd recommend checking around your area for a different repair person. Check on a site like Angie's List or something similar that advertises later hours that are more convenient to you. Good luvk, OP.
If you want something done right, do it yourself.
I would make her pay the bill for utter laziness.
