Rip off Britain ?

I wanted a new bathroom.
Twelve weeks to fit time I was told by the big chain store. Ok. I could wait that long.
They then phoned back.
Sorry, but it will be the end of February - six months!
I contact a local guy. He can do it in a couple of weeks.
Back to the chain store.
Give us a day sir.
Miracle upon miracle.
"We have found someone 'out of area' who can do it in six weeks. Ok?"
So why didn't they offer that in the first place?
Do these chain stores think we are suckers?
Yes.
To make matters worse the chain store was one hell of a lot more expensive.
Funny that.
Next job?
Get their fit price down...
Now I wonder if they'll say they got it wrong and actually it should have been.....
Keep you posted.

"Ah, sir we may be able to get a 10% reduction in price... there was an offer on in-store last week... I'll get back to you..."
That would save a load of my cash.
Don't ask, don't get...
