Been a bit quite for a while, so thought i better show willing.

What is the worst sort of Electrical Work?

i don't mean DIY or Kitchen Fitter, i mean what is your least favourite type of work.

For me it has to be Domestic Occupied Rewires.

i saw an advert in the Yellow Pages the other day and one Sparks advertises as a "Domestic rewire specialist", My mate wanted to phone him to ask him if he needed any help, but you hate rewires i said "i was going to offer him counselling" was his reply

Yep, 'lived in' rewires do it for me.

Would rather work on the sewage treatment plants on a hot day !

Totally agree house bashing pain inthe a*** especially when house is occupied having to move furniture, lift carpets & floorboards etc, then you have to put it all back down again before teatime so they can sit down for their dinner.

I would rather go 10 rounds with Amir Khan.:eek:

Nice to see that i am not the only one!

Does this annoy anyone else out there?

Decorators (sorry house painters) that splash emulsion on brand new accessories

After blood sweat and tears, chasing out, getting covered in ****, weedling (good word) cables about so they can't be seen and the only bit of our work to be seen and within 24hrs of it being put up, every switch and socket is covered in ******* paint!!! and to top it all the decorator asks if i can "just" take off the sockets so he can paper!!! cause we all like doing things twice but only paid once.

moan over

back to the Golf with a beer i go

actually whats worse is lived in council work
if the ******** arent nicking your tools /materials they're trying to break into your van .
had to install fans in council houses once (********** job on the planet) and the company expected me to cold call on them !!! couldn't get half of them out of bed
never ever again i refer you to my previous post:eek:

haha I have the same thing now Wayne. I 1st & 2nd fix 2 kitchens a week for council refurbs and then have to fit bathroom & kitchen fans in each of the houses. After that I do wire a seperate bathroom for a disabled adaption and then if I have any spare time left in the week my boss asks me to cold call other houses on a list which require kitchen and bathroom fans. He simply won't accept that the dole bludging sponging crack heads will not get out of bed to answer the door to me. He doesn't understand when they say they want a few days notice before going in and coring holes in breeze block and turning their kitchens and bathrooms black!
