I couldn't believe what I was seeing the other day when I received an e-mail from my 2nd contractor. The last time that I e-mailed him was January, I believe. I also called him, on his cell phone. Did he respond at that point in time? No, he did not.

This latest e-mail was more of the same. Excuses, apologies, and empty promises. I can't believe that he really thought that I was still waiting on him to complete my project.

The man has closed his construction company. Good. That means that he can't disappoint anymore people.

I should have deleted the e-mail with no response, but I told him the attic was finished, and I left it at that. I offered no specifics.

Arrogant. Good riddance.
