The point isn't the money.  The point is getting ripped off.  It was nice
to think that one didn't have to run around chasing contractors who didn't
show up half the time, whose word you had to take, and that now a big store
did the hiring and overseeing and you could *trust* them to make sure the
job got done.  If they're scamming money with such impunity, what are they
doing with the rest of their promises?  Think Citibank would say forget it
if you owed them $255?

hey, Irene, it's cool. i know a fellow who once stole $25,000 from a large bank.

so in the grand scheme of things (the little people vs. the Big Corps), you're 
still ahead.

(and no, i won't turn him in. he became a Republican and is now a pillager of the community.)
