a young man named JL called in response to my post for an electrician. He told me from what i had written he though I had a "faulty neutral" in the switch to my garbage disposal and offered to come take a look at it and give me a quote on the repair. I told him any day next week would be fine since it was late on Friday... he asked if I would be okay with Sunday, and we set the appointment for between 9 and 9:30. When no one had showed up by 10:30, I called. JL answered the phone and seemed not to remember me at all. He did not apologize but stated they had hired a new 'girl' to record the appointment and she had missed mine...that he really couldn't get angry, she was still very new. I told him that was fine, we could reschedule for one day next week. He state he had another appointment in my area today at 11 and it shouldn't take more than 30 minutes and he could come
by noon if I was agreeable. I was. It is now 5:23 PM and I haven't heard a word from him. Yes, anything is possible, he could have gotten tied up longer than he expected at the 11:00 appointment... (still he should have called) Or he might have been called home due to a family emergency, he could have been in a terrible accident.. and the list goes on. I truly pray there wasn't any family emergency or terrible accident... and I bear him no ill will no matter why he didn't show up. I must make my decision regarding what to do next based on what I do know and not on what might have happened. I know he made two appointments, I know he didn't make it to either one and he never called about either one with any explanation. Therefore I will be using someone else to resolve the problem I'm having with the electrical in my home. And I have to score based on what I know... So its one star. If he had at least been able to call and cancel the appointment I could have given him 2 stars for at least getting in touch.
