Did the electrician try to rip me off? or am I in the wrong??
If I call the management they will take longer to fix it, 3 weeks. So I thought of hiring a handy man. The handy man agreed to a flat rate of 60 dollars, he asked 120 at first since he said I need to do the wiring and all that. I said thats a lot I can wait for the management to fix it for free, but for 60, I can consider.
So he came in, took one look...and then pulled out a fuse from his pocket, and replaced it, what do you know...it works now. Took him 90 secons in total. Then he offered free advice for another 20 seconds that dont plug too many things into one wall plug...
And then he asked 60 dollars. I was like, that doesnt sound fair, I will pay you 20 as you didnt do anything. He disagreed as 60 is flat rate doesnt matter even if he worked for 2 seconds.
Finally he accepted 30 dollars. Am I in the wrong here or he was trying to rip me off?? what do you think??
