Title says it all really. The wife thinks it's fine to leave tradesmen (two or three electricians in our case) alone in the house for a few hours. I'm not that trusting. What do the good people of ukworkshop think?
That never bothered me, but my son hates it!nothing worse than a nosy customer constantly asking questions and checking on what you're doing!
Quite. I'm almost always 'left to it' - keys to the house (and often the family car if it needs to be moved) alarm codes, everything. How else would anyone get any work done otherwise??Karl":3c9ruj5s said:I'd be a bit miffed if a customer said that they didn't want to leave me alone in their house.
I have customers leave me a key, quite a lot over the years.Lons":uk9p31zb said:I very often am left alone and surprising how many times I have a key in advance and until the end of the job. One regular even leaves the key under the milk box for me.

Then the police turned up as it was a monitored system, it was a good job that I knew one of them as he was a customer.
I had a rather red faced customer come home a little while later. Tom
