A mate lives in a private rented house, he asked the landlord to do a few repairs and one of them was to box in around the pipes underneath his boiler. An easy enough job - you would think. Anyway after waiting for weeks for the work to be done two clowns show up and tackle the boxing in job.

Apparently this was their second attempt.

That is utter w*nk.

But why ask for pipes to be boxed in if it's rental? If I was asked, unless it was a safety thing, I'd have said no (or do it yourself).

Yep, pretty turd :lol:

Although, it's clear they've not been taught how to scribe, I'd have to give them a 'B' for effort on the use of pythagoras to work out that cut. Not executed very well but it shows a little thought. Which is sadly in short supply nowadays :roll:

If they're reading this - I think you just lost them.

I could have guessed it better than that, and cut it better, even without a coping saw.

Yea I know what you mean. They probably used it, whilst not really knowing what they were using.

It does show some degree of thought though, so I ain't changing my 'B' grade :lol:

That has nothing to do with Pythagoras, It has everything to do with Bodger, his older and less talented brother....

Yes it does. Pythagoras theorem states that for every sh1t angle there's an equal and opposite sh1t angle :lol:
