Just about. Haven't you hear about Chinese Wedding Dinners. They set the start time at 7pm so they hopefully will have all there by 8. Why do you think all locals eat brekkie on company time at their desk AFTER they clock in. Otherwise they would have to be docked as they would be even later than they normally are.

S.K.Y. 9 445 445 0: I took a chance on him off a craigslist notice. On the basis of one pickup/deliv of a dining suite, a great experience. Prompt, accommodating, quick to respond via sms, excellent price compared to others I phoned, good communication skills (a near-disaster for me on a previous deliv. encounter), and an allaround nice guy. Goes by "Sky:" his initials; tell him hi from Paul on Thomson.

Honestly, I can't remember. He gave me a namecard once but I ditch it. I only saved his number on phone, in case I ever need it.

Worse place for rubber time through experience: KL

"Halo ok I see you later between 2pm-4pm to fix your plumbing issue"

2 days later and they still don't show up - even after 100 calls! And condo mgmt won't pay for the plumbing if it's from another company.

I have learnt to find a "local" company, be really nice to them the first time and from then on, they will be very reliable!
Just me
