Contractor blues in Battambang...

Recommended Posts

Paul

So, we wanted to move to the little farm house, after everything is done. A few "creature comforts" just needed to be added first. You know, just basics - water, power, a proper toilet - with a bum gun, of course. Anyway, we started a little project, oh, about the first week of November. It was supposed to take ten (10) days to complete, at that time. 

Well, just read it, here:- Contractor blues in Battambang...

 

InfoLinks Warning: Infolinks IS installed on that forum. Since the date of adding them, not even one member has mentioned them to me. So, if you are one of those who really hated them here, you have been warned.

You need to get a larger display for your GT-I9505. It was properly written BUM GUN. :P 


Go to bed. It's quarter past 4am in the Phils.

I know what it means, we had this conversation at god knows what hour under a 'mushroom' at you know where. But its not a Philippines term diba?

 

Anyway the term is appropriate in Cambodia because they really have the strength of a 'gun'. Well lets say as strong as you want something like that to be. In the Phililpines, most of them are 'Bum Dribblers".

Trust me, the Philippines does not hold the patent on bum dribblers. Around 2am EVERY night here, the water pressure goes to zero.

 

That's why I will be running my OWN pump, pressurizing my OWN water system, feeding my OWN bum gun. I will have two things that Cambodia (apparently) cannot seem to provide me with:

 

Constant, 24 hours per day water pressure - 55psi, mind you.

Clean, reliable, stable, and continuous power, 24 hours per day. 

 

Just waitin' on the pump to come in. Sometime this week, it should arrive.

If you read the original article, it appears as though my contractor is back. We will see how hard he works with no more money until the job is finished - complete - done, to our satisfaction.

 

I have to go the farm and scold him, now.

Im sure your southern charm will enchant him. 

 

Offer a bonus for on time delivery (or delivery on a certain date).

I'm glad you clarified that. Because, at this point, there is no chance in hell of an "on time delivery". We are a month overdue now. For Cambodia, that is probably right on time, though. :D

Ok, so dumb question time, in Australian we do not have such high tech gizmos, so my question is, after you wash your bum, how do you dry it ??

I don't know how you would. But, for me personally, I have more than enough people blowing smoke up my ass, which keeps mine pretty dry.

So...what is this? A Kiwi throwing in with the Aussies? With all of the nasty things they say about you? I'll have you know that I don't shave my ass. I use a blow torch to get rid of the excess hair. It also keeps the lice down to a manageable herd and provides some tucker for you down-under fellas who like to throw stuff on the barbie. If the blaze gets out of control, I just use the bum gun.

UPDATE on "Contractor Blues..."

 

Our guy showed up for work today, (I guess) because he had contracted out the roof to be put on in the front and rear. Both are 3.0m x 5.0m. Both were made of welded steel. The fellow who did the roofing work had two helpers. They worked from the time they arrived, until they left. Didn't even stop for lunch. I was a VERY happy camper. I do not think I could find someone better to do that work, anywhere in Cambodia.

 

After finishing the roofs on the front and rear, the roofing guy left.

 

We hung around and discussed a few things regarding the work they did, current other issues, and future things that were on our minds to do. 

 

Was getting a bit late, so we decided to hit the road back to the apartment, before it got too late. 

 

After arriving home, our contractor needed to bring some stuff back to Battambang to swap out for other parts. So, we met him to go by the plumbing supplier. While there, he asked for - you guessed it - MONEY, dinero, coin, cashola, dollars. I never had to say a word. Chan and I had already discussed it, prior to him arriving in the city to meet up. Not one more cent was going his way until he finished the job. 

 

He wasn't happy. But, I am not going through this mess again. Just looked at the calendar. Met with him on the 11th. He should have been finished on the 21st of November. It's the 9th of December now, right? So, no. When you are done, you will get 100% of what we owe you.

 

Something tells me that he will be showing up for work a bit more, and this job will be finished in short time. :)

Better yet tell him if he is NOT done--- you will start lowering the contract price

LOL---- Myself---I keep looking at the thing and thinking how in the hell do you wash your ass without getting water everywhere

 

AND THEN THERE IS THE BIG QUESTION

 

Aint that water cold when it splashes on your nutts :)

First, don't knock it until you have tried it. 

 

Second, let's get back on the subject here, which is NOT Paul's bum gun.
