said by datguy11 :Sorry I'm late to the party. I have seen that hundreds of times myself. Someone wants a phone, TV or network port somewhere and has nothing moved out of the way. Now sometimes I have had to move a whole room around to run cabling but I never blame the customer for that as they have no idea where I need to get to for that but when they pick a spot for an outlet then there is no excuse. Further if I break something as an independent contractor I pay for it or it goes through insurance if it is above the deductible. I have never done so to date. If I run into an asshole customer with shit in the way of the outlet that is likely to be an issue moving i tell them to move it and I will come back "no charge". If they don't I tell them to f-off and call someone else. To juxtapose client's motivations to get off their fat ass sometimes if I am charging by the hour things seem to get moved and quickly. If it is a set charge on some installs then some people sit back and expect me to re-arrange their house.
WTF!!!! HE KNEW we were coming, how the f**k am I supposed to work in that area with that obstruction? Then he acted like I was supposed to move it for him..jerk
