Being very knowledgeable in all aspects of home construction, I have gained a good reputation among friends,family members
All this is a good thing but, it can be a big problem too...
A good example is my dear mother in law, who calls me often for advice about different problems in her house.
Two weeks ago she had a leak from a pipe. She had called a plumber, and he told her that he must break the wall in the
bathroom in order for him to fix the leak...
That meant a job worth fifteen thousands dollars.
So, she called me and I came to see what can be done.
The bathroom wall where the pipe was located had the kitchen behind it.
My advice to my mother in law was to remove one section of the kitchen cabinet and break the wall in
order to gain access to
the pipe. Needless to say that the plumber was not happy with my idea...(he was not going to earn much money)
Now it became my problem, and I had no choice but to accommodate my mother in law, so I did.
It took me four hours to fix the problem at a cost of fourty dollars.
I saved her a lot money but, now whenever a problem will arise she will call me..
