Jack was in agony as he seethed about the negative comments he received about the lack of space to work under the sink to fix the garbage disposal unit.
The seven plumbers he had used so far were always complaining about it. None of them had actually repaired the unit.
Jack took a walk, to clear his head and calm down. As he went by the parking lot, he noticed a man in a white coat sitting in the current plumber’s company van. Jack asked the man why all the plumbers sent over always complained. The man replied, “What do you expect when you contract with the psychiatric hospital work release program to save a little money?”.
After sending the plumber and the man in the white coat away, Jack used a local contract services company. This plumber came in and fixed the disposal within about twenty minutes, with no complaint whatsoever.
Remember, nothing comes cheap or easy, so learn to let the negativity fade away instead of getting mad about it.
Also, try not to go with the cheapest option, without researching it properly, which is not all that hard to do.
