Re: Billed 260CHF to change a light bulb!

Did the sparky come and say "Ah. You need a new bulb. I'll just have to nip back and fetch one"? Ensuring two visits and associated travelling (and probably admin)?

If so then I reckon that's incompetance/laziness on behalf of the agency. I'm sure it's not beyond their wit to say "We need an XYZ123 bulb changing...", even if they needed to call you back to confirm what the bulb type was.

If they only came once, then I'm stuck as to where they got 260 CHF from, unless it was some sort of special bulb sourced from CERN.
