Letter: Workmen not interested

Yesterday I spend a small fortune ringing around gas firms to attend to my L.P.G boiler.

Why do people put extensive ads in the yellow pages quoting “Fast response and years experience, no job too small” etc when they have no intention of even answering your calls, leaving you alone to do the work?

Out of my 10 phone calls (mobile) only one helpful lady from Lincoln gave my a number to ring nearer my location.

Firms around the Louth area must either be very nice off due to their high prices or very uninterested.

Perhaps this would be a good area to encourage hardworking Polish trained immigrants to settle, they would make a fortune and probably be more reliable.
