Someone who should know better phoned me last night about fitting them an outside light… they weren’t a particularly close friend, but of course I said yes. I then said it would be about £xx.xx + VAT.
Their response… oh I thought you’d do it as a friend.
Yes. Of course, I spend many thousands of pounds qualifying as an electrician, registering and passing a part P (which was many nights revision, and many days practice with various systems), a hell of a lot insuring myself so if my work burns your building down you have a claim.
Yes, of course I do it free… what do you think?
