Good luck with your search.
Umm. Not sure its very professional old boy throwing your toys out of the pram in public! Fine though I have no professional reputation to worry about so lets examine how the conversation went shall we.
I asked you if you could look at a leak which you very kindly explained that due to your high work load you could not look at straight away but you would ring me back on Friday to give me a better indication as to when you could fit me in. That was no problem what so ever and I thanked you for your time and looked forward to talking on Friday.
Friday came and by around 1400 I still had not heard from you so I thought I would ring you. I phoned at 1400 ish - no reply and tried again at 1500 - to which the strangest thing happened. The phone rang and then went to engaged almost like somebody pressed the don't answer button? Of that I cant be sure so forgive me if you did not deny the call. I have my reservations though!
I did not come on here shouting off. Far from it pal. In fact I believe if you took the time to read the post it said something along the lines of it was a shame you could not do the work as you appeared helpful on the phone, understood you are busy and was looking for somebody reliable. Those are facts pal. You did not ring me back when you said you would which makes you, in my book, unreliable. Sorry if you don't like it!
What I am seeing though, just in time thankfully, is your true colours as warned to me by others in the local area. Thank you for your time Ed, I have found numerous other people who are at this moment carrying out work for me in the area so no need for the good luck bit. You are certainly not the only person who can carry out work on boats pal.
Good luck with building local relations in the future.
