Indeed ... we pay them for their time and skills, and then it is the customer's prerogative as to what he wants.
We accomplished a lot yesterday ... it was something that we did from scratch .. however, I was really furious when I returned home last night.
First it was the "manmaani of the fabricator, then he decided to double his demand at the time when I made the payment ... Everything was explained to him and he agreed on a certain price. Then, what he did was different and less than what we agreed, and then at the time of payment, he doubled his demand on "no grounds"
Then, it was the selfish upholstery shop. This man uses different identities to promote his shop on PakWheels .. and as the reality goes .. he is "the most ghattiya person" you could ever encounter. I asked him about the cost of covering about 2 sq. ft of cloth .. and he said "bas aap labour kay charges day daina" .. and then when the job was finished, he demanded an insane amount of money ..
It was just sab'r and perseverance on our part that we accomplished this stuff.
We decided that next time we will either do the stuff ourselves or go to Lahore for getting it done.
