Unfreakinbeliveable part 2

Well, the head guy from the driveway company showed up today. He was NOT very nice or apologetic.

He stated that the damage to the neighbor’s lawn was (ready? Everyone sitting?) Not his fault. THEN he proceeded to say that he had never, ever seen this happen before and that he would fix it, but it wouldn’t be in the near future. He said “I’m going to wait until there’s not an ounce of rain in the forecast, because this will just happen again.”

When I brought up our neighbor’s concerns about the tar all over her lawn, he pish poshed me and said that there’s no way it could break a blade, and it wasn’t her property anyway.

Well, who is he to know that where he got the stuff all over was our property and not hers? It was HER property that he got stuff all over.

So, Doug called Colostomy. He had obviously gotten a call from the guy after he left here.

Colostomy said “He seems like a real asshole.”

My thought? Takes one to know one..

but I digress.

So, for all of you in the Capital Region, I’m going to out this company so that you do NOT use them ever. I usually don’t do this, but after the meeting today where he basically didn’t want to fix it and the hell we’ve been through, I am going to do it. The world needs to know how bad this was.

The company that screwed up our driveway is

D&S Services- driveway sealers and powerwashers

www.drdriveway.net  (this is choice because I double checked this 3x, and it won’t give you clearance to enter without a password. Yeah, really up front and honest, huh?)

Robert Kirkby, President

Phone:  518-877-4981


Oh, and wanna hear something hilarious? In their brochure, they have this quote:

“The bitterness of poor quality lasts long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

Yeah. you got that right.

    Been there, done that. We had new counter installed right after doing all the flooring in our house. The counter guys cut a hole into our dishwasher which leaked all over our brand new wood floors. One year later and we still haven’t seen the counter guys out since they gave us a “new” messed up dishwasher. I am losing my mind. But hey, on the bright side, my husband is dealing with it. By dealing with it I mean not. Haha. Oh well. What do you do?? Laugh or go crazy. I feel your pain.
