Cant handle the truth. Dont worry, im very content that word is out now. You cant stop people from relating the truth through word of mouth. When i made my post there was nothing on red bud topix, and my single paragraph would have drifted down the list in to obscurity weeks ago if there hadnt been so many replies suggesting shady business practices where somehow acceptable while complaining about being a victim of them is not. It was supporters of bad business that kept the thread from going away, his support did what i never intended to do, drag out a quick warning into a long bitchfest that not one word of was good press. I told the anbsolute truth, and will again, where it wont be removed because someone cried. There are lots of business review sites people commonly refer to, they want the truth, and some of them do their own research before publishing complaints, they dont remove their reviews over pouting or allow personal attacks, which were even minimal here. I didnt want a war, i didnt even really want to hurt anyone, only to protect a few naive people like myself, but I dont appreciate censorship. Ill be moving this to another venue after putting the whole thing together on paper to eliminate all the accusations, if they tell me its poppycock, so be it, but if they publish it it'll be way worse than some anonymous gripe on here. Im thinking someone got upset they had to start writing up estimates.

When you put it on paper, you might want to consider paragraphs, proper grammar, and perhaps spell check. Good luck!

Another avenue to consider would be approaching the business in person, but it's much easier to mount an anonymous attack on the internet. You're an inspiration to everyone I'm sure.

Its you thinking you get your say and others dont thats pushed this whole thing this far. Why should i give someone who has already done me wrong a chance to, what, tell me to screw off? When did anyone ever say "yes, i overcharged you, let me give a little money back", when they had done it on purpose? This was no mistake, it was opportunism. Dont worry, when im being formal, i can spell, space, and punctuate flawlessly. Stick your opinions in your stupid asses. Keep pushing, see where that leads. The man or his mother no doubt had the last item down after bursing into tears, those tears wont influence any consumer protection agency, and i have a retired licensed union plumber with 30 years experience ready to show proof of my claim through industry standards.

Well I will wait patiently for you scathing review of this horrific scandal. Furthermore, I'm sitting on the edge of me seat to see if you have the guts to reveal your true identity so the business can defend their actions rather than fight faceless allegations.

And again, if you would have done half of the research you've done AFTER the work was done before hand, you wouldn't be in this position. So if the lesson is that people should get multiple quotes before allowing a contractor to work on their home, again, I think most people know that. But if you wanted you message to reach stupid people, you've certainly come to the right place & seem to be a great spokesperson for that cause.

That is what my original post said, and if you have ever tried to get a plumber to show up to do a repair in red bud you understand that getting just one to show up in less than a period of months is an amazing fete, and you understand the difficulty in trying to get just one competing estimate, not to mention "multiple estimates". If you haven't, you're just blowing smoke to hide a buddies or your own scam. Good business people charge uniform rates. If my bill was an example of the norm the man would have even less work than i believe he must now. The best defense anyone has offered is that i was naive, as though that makes it ok to price gouge. I have admitted my stupidity, and am never going to go away as long others keep making excuses. I cant tell if its one crook or a bunch of them defending that practice, but it doesnt intimidate me. How would you feel if you found out your dentist charged you more than other customers because you didnt ask him first if he charged you extra? That could be arranged, better start getting dental estimates.

Don't be a coward come forward with your name. If you can talk bad about people then say your name. People are tired of you and your complaining. I have seen two year olds behave better then you. You are a immature, spoiled, selfcentered piece of crap!!!!!!!!!!

I'd ask them why they charged extra. If it was justifiable (and in your case - it looks like you had an emergency repair & perhaps you paid a premium to have the work done on YOUR schedule rather than the plumbers)- I'd continue to give them my business. If I didn't think it was justifiable, I'd find a new dentist.

What I wouldn't do was complain to faceless people on Topix, but suit yourself.

yes, you are. I came here after much consideration and being absolutely sure of myself through fairly extensive learning.
