    I see a good, 1st round match in the making here. AbsHo, take note.

I'll tell you now, it's more than that. I got a quote this fall from Lowes for a fencing install that was a one day job, as described by Lowes. $1200 labor for two guys to come out for one day.

    Needless to say, I kept the wallet closed, manned up, and spent 4 Saturdays doing the job myself. It took me longer than them, but I saved the money, and I didn't complain. Everything has a cost.
    Did you previously post as someone else? Your posts have a slightly humblebrag, slightly douchey tone that rings familiar to me.

    You don't even know what he does for a living. Of course he isn't giving you the friend discount. Did you call him "buddy" or "chief" the whole time?

    Apparently you have the same problem as the other guy. I didn't know *at the time of the other projects* (which was a couple of years ago) that was his job. I knew this time, which was why I offered to pay him.

    "People like me"?

    Please avoid the topics of race, religion, and politics.
