    Well wat can I say this customer had us in to do a job but we was only there to do the work we did not buy any materials for this job the customer bought very cheap wall paper and the batch numbers did not match up so when I spoke to the customer about this she insisted that we put the wall paper up so we did an the to top it off she never bought enough paper to finish the job THATS NOT DOWN TO US SHE BOUGHT THE WALL PAPER ... So we did the job 17th an we was scheduled to be there for 3 days so we never had enough paper for us to finish she then said she was going to order some more so a week went by an I called her to see if the paper had come she said no an that she had to go away for a couple weeks So only when I explained to her that its not our fault that you never bought enough paper for the job an I asked her if she could pay us harf of the money so we can move onto the next job only then did she start to abuse us on the fone so I said if the work is that bad then keep your money an we will just strip the walls that we had done but no she insisted to send us harf the money PLEASE UNDERSTAND IF WE DID A BAD JOB THEN SHE WOULD OF LET US TAKE IT DOWN THAT JUST SHOWS THAT THE JOB WASNT A BAD JOB SHE WAS JUST TRYING TO CON US OUT OF PAYING US FOR THE WORK.... An to top it off well we was working in her house there was a man an a woman smoking drugs think it was herrion its not something were used we felt very uncomfortable ...... We charge no money upfront for any of our jobs that we do until we are finished that's our garentee to our customers .. Sorry u have to read this but unfortunately there are a lot of bad people in this world an she is 1 of them ....
