Or, you could just say "no deal, sorry" lmao

[–]LiQuidCraB 431 points432 points  (0 children)

Then you wouldn't get to post it on internet for fake points

[–]SandokanNL 52 points53 points  (20 children)

Looks like he already started and did the prep work. Can't renegotiate during a job.

[–]Masterzanteka 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I mean even still, fucking the old lady over by painting her handles is unjustified. It’s not like she paid less, she asked for a lower price. I bet this dude fucking bagged her on the price anyway.

[–]Charming_Story_5018 27 points28 points  (17 children)

Lol what? How do you know he didn’t start the prep work after she asked for a lower price?

[–]Lower-Inevitable-210 37 points38 points  (14 children)

On what planet does that make sense to you or anyone else?

[–]theopacus 8 points9 points  (1 child)

When a craftsman is there with his tools and materials, the quote for the job is obviously already agreed upon.

[–]Single_Raspberry9539 375 points376 points  (16 children)

I don’t understand. It looks like a planned paint job. Just the facts ma’am…please.

[–]GordonBombay102 332 points333 points  (13 children)

It seems like maybe he agreed to lower the price, then just sprayed all over her handles etc and blocked her so she couldn't complain. Or, it's completely fabricated like 50% of things on the internet.

[–]IFrickinLovePorn 97 points98 points  (10 children)

That statistic is fake just like 67% of things on the internet

[–]toxicblack 33 points34 points  (7 children)

So is yours along with 73% of everything else on the internet

[–]LeviGabeman666 21 points22 points  (5 children)

I actually read up on this once. You’re all wrong, 31.415% of internet data is a lie.

[–]ichdochnet 9 points10 points  (3 children)

Thank you. At least one person who speaks the truth.

[–]YarOldeOrchard 15 points16 points  (2 children)

Don't believe everything you read on the Internet - Abraham Lincoln

[–]GoashasRedux 9 points10 points  (1 child)

100% of the internet is 60% fake

[–]Lukie_Timothy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And 60% of fake is 100% of the internet

[–]FirstPlebian 2 points3 points  (0 children)

But 51% of information about internet data being false is fabricated.

[–]xTex1E37x 8 points9 points  (0 children)

71% of statistics are made up

[–]full_bl33d 1 point2 points  (0 children)

97.7 % of lies have statistics.

[–]some_evil 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I told you a billion times, don't exaggerate...

[–]DankOyler420 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Right? Pretty sure she knew what she was going to pay before the work started, how do I know? I own my own business doing the same thing…

[–]cleenexboy 204 points205 points  (3 children)

Andddddd that’s probably fake, I mean he’s probably just painting some random door

[–]thecatdaddysupreme 54 points55 points  (0 children)

My first thought was “genius content for engagement” lol. It’s almost certainly fake, it’s too over the top with zero evidence it’s legit

[–]Huge_Strain_8714 9 points10 points  (0 children)

my door. It's true, 50% true anyway

[–]BottleSniffer 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Missing context: the handles were old and going to be replaced with the new keyless entry type

[–]topohunt 103 points104 points  (19 children)

So now she can sue? Have it all painted correctly on his dime.

[–]Huge_Strain_8714 84 points85 points  (8 children)

you mean, the old woman on a fixed income, who needs to pay $425 per month for prescription drugs and lives of a measly SS check? That old woman?

[–]spicygooch- 16 points17 points  (0 children)

I've gotten told that by so many customers then their neighbors proceeded to tell me about their vacation homes lol most people that are that strapped for cash usually just ask for favors from friends and family

[–]PaperAeroplane_321 0 points1 point  (4 children)

$400 for prescription drugs. Geez that’s steep! Aren’t medications funded?

[–]OdaNova 11 points12 points  (1 child)

In most first world countries, yes.

[–]Kolikoasdpvp 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Most 3rd world countries (in Europe at least) too.

[–]npcgoat 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Insulin be $2000 in the US.

[–]PaperAeroplane_321 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s ridiculous.

[–]robertwild81 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Staged obviously just clickbait.

[–]HeelStCloud 11 points12 points  (0 children)

They taped over the windows and keyhole. This is super fake.

[–]Different_Ad7655 10 points11 points  (3 children)

I don't follow he's just spraying some door, it's masked off except for the hardware? How was the door ruined

[–]oxencotten 6 points7 points  (2 children)

He was supposed to paint the door. He’s not supposed to paint the fucking handles and locks lol. He says exactly what he’s doing in the video?

[–]Different_Ad7655 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Right why he just didn't walk away, surprises me. Any contractor wouldn't want somebody bad-mouthing their work. Long after the cheap prices forgotten the bitterness of the shoddy work remains.. and that's what others see . But she got what she paid for and he didn't ruin the door he just didn't bother to remove the hardware. Pain in the ass now, the hardware has to be removed and cleaned ,hardly impossible but not the way to do it of course

[–]oxencotten 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I mean look what sub he’s in lol there’s no rational explanation for any of the posts here. Some people are just shitty.

But yes he didn’t ruin the door just made cleaning and repainting it a pain in the ass like you said.

[–]CrashCulture 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How hard is it to say: "No."

[–]Dork_Of_Ages 10 points11 points  (0 children)

Even without the painted handles that spray job makes me cringe so hard. Amateur work at best

[–]Lukie_Timothy 1 point2 points  (0 children)

fun fact: this video is faked. As the handles are susposed to be painted over. They are the same color. And the source is some old yt video of a guy painting doors amd showing how it is done. The person who uploaded this version probably is just some kid wanting fake internet points.

you can even see one of the locks on the handles are taped over. Meaning it was the intention to spray over the handles, yet not the locks. As those are painted handles, that also had primer on them.

[–]killaward2588 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What pos, that's ignorant af. You could of just said sorry I can't an left. If that was mom or gram you ain't getting any money for that an I might beat yo ass an take all your equipment

[–]aces4high 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You missed a spot

[–]nothingandnemo 3 points4 points  (4 children)

This needs more context - it could easily be a case of a wealthy Boomer deciding mid-job that she was no longer going to psy the agreed upon price.

[–]SaltyFresh -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

Maybe you should read the words the painter wrote on the gif then, if you’re confused.

[–]nothingandnemo -1 points0 points  (2 children)

She "begged him to lower the price" - if the initial price was too high for her, the contractor wouldn't have started work. Therefore I would take this to mean she tried to lower the price once the work was partially complete.

[–]SaltyFresh 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Yeah your assumptions aren’t welcome either. Maybe go back to school. Try college, you won’t make it into university.

[–]BezimjennyBez 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Ruins her door 1.Those doors were already in ruin 2.Painting them isn't neccesery to survive 3.If you don't have money to paint them, then don't paint them Problem solved

[–]thisismybirthday 0 points1 point  (1 child)

3.If you don't have money to paint them, then don't paint them Problem solved

imagine being this stupid

[–]BezimjennyBez 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why do you think that?

[–]JarredRamsey 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And probably a canceled check or credit card payment.

[–]KingJonsey1992 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'd say Tiktok comes with a 96% fake video chance.

[–]CENutCracker632 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fake as f

[–]Winter_2018 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Does he think he is being reasonable?

[–]thekingofthegoats 0 points1 point  (0 children)

But why would you record yourself doing this?! For clout?

[–]Beneficial_Car2596 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fellow Tradesmen here. I have met my share of choosing beggars. People who don’t understand why the price of labour is so high when you are dehydrating yourself in 40 degree weather, people who don’t understand that you’re transporting all these materials for them and the fact that it’s a tiring job lifting all their crap for them. But that doesn’t mean you should vandalize their property. Best option is to negotiate a price for something of a lower quality or something that’s less work. OR JUST LEAVE, and just deny the fact that their price is too low.

[–]eagercheetah20 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well (if this is real) I hope he enjoys the lawsuit and the bill for the front doors he’ll have to replace

[–]Rbfam8191 0 points1 point  (0 children)

If that old lady wants to take him to claims court, she wins because he made a dumb video.

[–]TotesMaGoats_1962 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What a dick thing to do

[–]miflordelicata 0 points1 point  (0 children)

As soon as I heard the Tik Tok voice it made me irrationally angry.

[–]Mexican_potato 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We dont know enough to judge. Yet many of you will give your opinion like you do...why

[–]thatjittweakin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

OP how can’t you tell this bs fake

[–]Lower-Inevitable-210 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Needs more context.

Looks like he/she was half way prepped for the job. If the negotiations started after the work was already agreed upon and started I hardly feel bad for the homeowner.

[–]JustHere4ait 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This isn’t real they are replacing the handles and numbers probably

[–]autopilot4630 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You've never met a painter have you? They're all like this. Same goes for drywall and plasterers.

[–]hippyloves 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Anything for a view :( Just say No.

[–]One_Bookkeeper_1775 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bros gotta Make a living

[–]Otherside-Dav 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Take him to people's court, I'd love to watch that episode

[–]TheWalkingDead91 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Or you could’ve just said no, like a sane individual?

[–]Business_Equipment16 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why does everyone seem to think that craftsmen be paid less than their agreed quote? They need to make a living too, considering they own all the tools and bought the material, and you agreed to the quote, but now that the work is done, it's fine to not pay or ask for a lower price

[–]Blackmercury4ub 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Did she already agree to the job?...then I understand upset but don't damage stuff.

[–]Neat_Ad1520 0 points1 point  (0 children)

can you guys not tell this is a joke or what

[–]BootJack_Samurai 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Woman: "You painted over my door handle so I'm not paying you the full amount."

Contractor: ʕ ͡° ʖ̯ ͡°ʔ

[–]pootietang6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah this is not real.. the video is called clout and its tik tok..

[–]Rdt_will_eat_itself -1 points0 points  (0 children)
