The contractor sounds like he was just ripped off. And it’s ok to think certain things but not to write them in a publication! I think that it was tongue-in-cheek but...

It would make me very nervous to hire a contractor like this.

You may not be aware, and unless I'm mistaken, this company is and has been, the SOLE provider of garage doors (and?) for ALL Villages homes for years...so we're not talking about some small fry contractor.

Which, to me at least, made his comments...even that much more egregious.

After reading the entire article and its unmistakable tone, I personally can't imagine anyone being naïve enough to believe that this very clearly stated and implied threat...was "tongue-in-cheek."

I would encourage everyone to read the entire article, and point out at any time ...where he sounded like he was 'just joking.'

No I did not know that the contractor was so prevalent in TV. Wow! In that case it really would be prudent to apologize or at least explain because I would not work with someone who’d threaten me.

Yep, it's pretty darned amazing...that's for sure.

In fact, further research shows that they also build trusses and other building materials, that I'm guessing...have went into thousands and thousands of houses here in TV (they've been in business for over 70 years).

For those who still haven't had a chance to read the entire article, or who might try and excuse the tone as just "tongue-in-cheek" or "kidding"...here it is in its entirety.

Y'all make up your own minds.

And oh yeah, what part of...

...sounds like a joke?

I mean seriously..."JUST as prevalent...as ripping off older homeowners?!"

It's probably just me and my sense of fairness, but the more I think about it...the more disgusted I become.
