Keith10 the Irish handyman

Hi, If you know him or if he contacts you for work please kindly let me know as I am still with a broken window that he promised to come and replace, back in December.
Thanks!

Perhaps he is ignoring the OP... not a great advertisement is it.

Re: Keith10 the Irish handyman

I think you are right unfortunately. I offered to share the cost with him so I really hope he will come and finish the job.

You're the one who specifically mentioned his nationality in your thread title.

I think marischi is implying that because he's Irish, he's a shoddy handyman.

I don't find the joke funny but maybe others do.

I wonder if I am the only one who saw the thread title and immediately thought "Dis'll all have to come down".

(But I'm pretty sure Parnell has read Myles, so I'm probably not alone.)

Ach, you see.. that witticism, JagWaugh, went unperceived and you need to quietly replaced it back into the treasury of your mind.

Parnell is probably leaning on a wall somewhere and will be along in due course

I see. Well each nationality has its reputation and that's why I want him to come and finish the job. I hope he will.

Re: Keith10 the Irish handyman

Maybe your Keith from Ireland is in England this weekend, after all it was the Grand National, and you know how "them folk" love a wager on the horses.

Do you not have some other way of contacting this guy? Send him an invoice and start the claims process if he does not respond.

Re: Keith10 the Irish handyman

No I don't otherwise I would. I sent him a message via the forum but he didn't reply. I don't know the name of his company either. I trusted him. And I still want to believe he will see the message, think about his reputation and come to finish the job.

According to his profile, he has e-mail enabled. Try sending an e-mail instead of a private message.

Yes the quality of deep fried Mars bars has risen

There is some great food to be had north of the wall, so the poster who talked about Scots cuisine has probably never tried it, or never got further than a Wetherspoons
