time for dark Richard. So let me vent. please lord let me love everyone. Ok so here it is. why all the Asian hate? I really hate nobody, but lately getting the feeling that there is some conspiracy. I been paying google for these ads, ching ching the money flows out of my hands, been getting carrots dangled in front of me on promising jobs, and they just disappear. One thing I learned not to chase jobs as it only leads to low ballers. So right about the time after going through my Cancer bullshit. radical Neck dissection, radiation and chemo, cisplatin. I got a job, I needed one as i had not worked any decent projects. I got a job in Mesa building a 2 story addition for a Vietnamese family. The job was going well, until they started changing things, adding more work and not wanting to pay. The stress started to get to me. This lady was a screamer, not at me but her 2 kids in Vietnamese. The other issue was cockroaches’, they were everywhere, it was ok on the new stuff, but inside the house was awful, I dont like cockroaches, they give me the ebejeebies. Crickets, fine, but the roaches, not so nice or spiders. Anyway, I got most of the job done, and they were still changing and not paying. I needed the money, I did bid it low, but would have been fine without all the changes they refused to pay, anyway I was able to complete my contract. Well lo and behold I get a complaint from the ROC of Arizona. they filed a complaint. I had to meet with the investigator and the homeowner, Yes there were lots of bad work, but it was not my work, or on my contract. She had hired homeless people to do work, she complained the concrete was not level, well it was not the concrete it was the door installed improperly. there was more, none of it was mine. She had also hired an unlicensed contractor, and he was already under investigation, long story short, I was cleared of any wrongdoing. It was a lesson learned on pricing. You have to not price to get the job done above and beyond just a wage project. I do not think they were bad people, I liked them, but it was very stressful after going through all the treatments and being low on money. So that is not the reason I am writing, somehow they have all these reviews out there, they posted reviews on how I was a dishonest contractor on any and all sites they could. So here I am paying for these google ads, and the top searches under google show up under this lady and her husband, they use different names, but they are the same family, not one site, not 2 but all sites that have reviews, and google has them front and center, 10 years old. So google is taking my money and making sure I dont get new jobs. WTF my spidey senses have gone wild, and the google operators, all Asian, or with Asian accents. OK OK now that is not it. So a couple years ago, I go to the Phoenix Indian Center, I had been having issues with Covid, still not eating 100% clean food. stress? not sure but I was almost panicked. so this Asian doctor tells me she needs to send me to another hospital, I told here I did not want to go. She insisted and scared me into going, I knew on the way over there it was a mistake. they kept me locked up in a windowless room, I finally demanded to be released, long story short. 20k in hospital bills and 10k for the ride over. I walked back to the phoenix Indian hospital and picked up my car, got the bill a few months later. The government paid some, but they sent the rest to collections. now I dont want to make like I am anti anything, I just add them up as I see them. like the Asian that chased me and my sweet mary in Seattle only to scream at me “White Cracker” the hate is more from them than from others, it seems to get reciprocated and they get offended. I see that it is a cultural thing to low ball and wheel and deal, I had learned that was the norm for people from other countries and here too. i had my fill of those project, much better to get paid hourly and collect unemployment, or unenjoyment. I see the same disconnect from them as I do from the Amigos, so it is not abnormal, it is normal. So google does not seem to be a viable tact, as they are using tactics to keep you broke, the whole learning bullshit it just that. thousands of dollars later, but the worst part is posting 10 years old reviews from the one project. As a contractor, the work is often the easiest part, dealing with the people is the hardest part. it is not something you learn overnight, in hindsight, Now I dont take those kinds of deals, or price it at the going rate, which would have been 150k at the time, not 40k. here is the job when I was done. see image. anyhoo, there is today vent, sorry to tracy and any other Asian whom I might have offended with my tirade as with all people it is more a personal thing than a cultural. Any person who is married to a white person and visa versa, is not effected by the divided peoples, that I see with my own eye.
