well, the electrician turned up at 9.25,with a brand new fan. he was disgusted how it had been rewired,this done last year by their so called electricians when house was rewired and new kitchen fitted, he said no wonder it wont work as a humidistat,someones cut it out,and theres no second live feed. sounds about right. this was done by the same pratt who forgot to connect the earths up in a ceiling rose, think will leave that for another day tho lol. anyway,he drank his 3rd cup of tea,munched his biccys ( im good, evry1 who works here gets tea or coffee,and i find it pays off.) and left. no door. as he leaving the decorator rang,has door been done yet?? no i said tell them to ring me when its done he said.
11.45 and a van puls up,cheery chappie knocks on door and walks in, another cuppa made,old door soon off. and he went to van. came back with a long package. laid it on carpet and opened it. he said,this looks exciting,and grinned. i left him to it,and got mine and mums lunch. he was about an hour,had to fill in old hinge and lock keep holes up. stuck his head round lounge door, all done, thanks for tea bye. went. sooooo i went to lok at my nice new concertina door.
I think my swearing was heard right down road,lol. i have never seen so much crap in all my life. its plastic,consisting of thin cheap slats done in a faux wood effect,suspended from a rail,not fixed at bottom, the catch is a cheap magnetic one............................. its a bloody shower curtain well that is what it looks like. i was livid. mum was upset. it is completely useless,no privacy,and best bit of all,if window is open,and there is a wind,which there was tosay,the bloody thing blows outward down the bottom of it,or if front door opens,it blows inwards. really good. to open and close it,it is so rubbishy you need to pull it from the top else it sticks,mum cant bless her.she only ickle,4 ft 10 bent over with arthritis too.
so, ive now got a glorified shower curtain for a door. the nice lady who came to see me about door from our housing association has received what is quite possibly the longest email i have ever sent. i think she will see i'm rather unhappy. to say least. anyway,told her that i dont care if a door does catch on bath mats ( the excuse used for gap under door ) i will take mat up. fit me a door,fit it properly soon. one thing i noticed,which i did point out,rest of doors in house are 30 inches,old bathroom door was 27, this new opening is 33 inches.!!! now if wheelchair goes through rest of doors ok,which it does,and "surveyor" who origionally came out was told that, why was opening into bathroom made so big?????
i only needed one bloody inch extra to get wheelchair through. i could have done a better job myself. i did say to surveyor,all it needed was door lining taking out,refaced with thinner wood,and a sliding door fitted onto hall wall. couldnt do that,oh no. so i now got huge doorway,not enough room now for a sliding door and a curtain. the decorator turned up by the way little later,took one look looked at me,and said ive got better one than that in my caravan and that's rubbish. he did gloss frame and i can paper hall weekend got enough spare paper and boarder to do it also paint bathroom sometime . i really hope this gets sorted out quickly,otherwise i shall contact my council. i know it doesn't meet building regs.and did point that out in email. you couldnt make it up. take care all
