PostSubject: Fleeced again! I never saw it coming...   Sun Aug 15, 2010 3:03 pm

I thought it may be a good idea to start a thread where members can post funny stories telling the tales of the ingenious lengths people goto to fleece us out of a couple of quid or sherk off work.Please keep it jovial with no horror stories as we have all heard of those.There have been many instances over the years in foreign countries for me.But two this week for a friend and I.

Approx five days ago I engaged a local to clear approx 500m2 of 6ft high bush in the garden.Well the price doubled half way through the job,the sythe was broken after one hour so he decided to trample what he could so it looked like it had been cut.Still demanded his money though.

A friend in the village was employing the same guy to chop wood for him when he had finished at my house.I told him to be careful but what could go wrong with chopping wood? Well the friend was round earlier with a trailer load of logs which he found in the neighboring garden.Seems the guy had the cut one lob one approach to this activity.I knew he'd have him some how but didn't figure on the wood disappearing over the wall.We did have a good laugh over his ingenuity.

The guy we both employed is the village idiot by the way! Luckily there wasn't much money involved and we both have a sense of humor!

We employed a local lad to organise the laying of paths around our property. Well he employed a so called maestro who is Turkish. Every time the 'chef' went off site we found him lazing on one of our sun loungers sun bathing. As soon as he heard the car he was up and working with the rest of the useless bunch.

He had a great tan though. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

What a good topic, I know some won't find it funny but I have to say in some cases as above you can't help but laugh

Sorry to say it ABC but that really does take the biscuit and is worthy of a medal for the culprit

I agree with what you say and yes its yet another lesson learned but fair play to the Bulgarian for his initiative although it wasn't right
