So stressed I was up until midnight then awake at 4 am.
By 5.30 am decided to go out and have a coffee to try and relax.
I didn't care that I hadn't shaved
Didn't care that I hadn't put on make up
Didn't care that I looked like a bloke in a skirt
But all the other early coffee goers at 6 am were really quite chilled about me, smiled politely and staff were their usual lovely self.
So why am I stressed -
Well I did an hour of plumbing and spent $170 on parts.
BUT in the protection racket that is New Zealand..........
Anyway, my cost to do a mint job, within the scope if their written rules - lets call it $300
Plumbers pricing.......... cheapest $1,900......... average $2,400.
Same for my drain layer - $4,500 for 5 man hours of work and $300 of materials.
I really don't have the money to pay someone $700/hr (my weeks earnings) and another $500 for him to write a certificate to say he did an okay job.
