Trust No One… except God, as no one can be strong except in the strength of God, or safe except in His defense.
A bit of vigilance will ensure you will be unlike a fool and his money who are soon parted. Exercise caution when dealing with these types of people.
•A Skinny Chef
I mean how do you know they really love food? Also, be careful of the overweight cook, it might mean they eat all the best bits of the food before serving.
•people who do not make funny faces at babies
What other fraudulent behaviour are they hiding behind that poker face.
•People who don’t show up on Google.
How else will you know, they are who they say are, if Google says they don’t exist?
•Men with very smooth and clean hands.
It means that they have never had to work hard, maybe they wear gloves (those are great for not leaving fingerprints) or worse they pay others to do their dirty work
• PeOpLe WhO tYpE LiKe This
Sorry to tell you this but they’re almost definitely plotting to kill you.
• Hairdressers and barbers
They will look you in the eye and swear they did not just mess up you hairline and say how its the cut that’s not suited to the shape of your face…
•Tailors, Carpenters, Mechanics, Builders, Painters, Plumbers, Repairmen,…..
First, its important to never pay the full amount before they start working on your project, but also make sure you pay enough down payment or deposit to ensure their commitment to start working.
Don’t be fooled, by how smoothly they talk and how well they tell you they can do the job (they will never tell you that a task is outside of their scope)…
If it’s a job that can be done while you wait, then wait and watch them work. Don’t let them convince you to take a walk and come back later. (this when the funny things happen like switching parts or outsourcing to one who can actually do the job they pretended to be able to do)
If you want something done, let’s say a coffee table set or an outfit for a wedding in a week’s time, drop in regularly to check for progress, don’t just go on the day before the wedding to pick up your order, because you will hear all sorts of stories.
Always get a quote before you let them start work, if they supplying and fitting make sure the prices are not being inflated; you may want to supply your own materials.
For my sister’s wedding a couple years back we decided to wear All White Suits…. we were referred to a reliable tailor…
Can you make six suits like this:
No problem he says… but one month later, on the day of the wedding, he was still sewing; we were almost late for the church service waiting for him to finish.
Which reminds me, he still owes us a jacket and six neckties…
Never trust anyone who says trust me….
