DO NOT HIRE Sam West home repair, handyman, in the Houston Heights... Here is why!

My mom needed a small repair in the bathroom at our home. She called a repair man she found in the Leader, a Greater Heights publication, that we get all the time.  When she called the phone number (713) 582-5500 that in all caps read “WEST SAM” a man name Sam West came to our home right away, which we took as a good sign... to repair a towel rack in my bathroom. A seemingly simple task for a handyman. We even have all the parts. I was in the next room when my mom walked Sam West (West Sam on your phone) in, and I immediately detected his condescending tone toward my mother. As they continued to talk and exchange in conversation, his tone became more mean, disrespectful and chauvinistic toward her. My mom remained submissive and polite as she talked with him, “just to get the repair done,” she said.  However, I, an extremely tolerant person, upset and visibly shaken by this man’s treatment, had to interject and ask him to leave only five minutes into his visit. I told him “you don’t ta

WATCH: Versace Fall-Winter 2021 | Fashion Show

Image
Another example of the most spectacular fashion show editing today.  Runways are so last century. It's all about how to make your fashion show look like a music video. The pandemic has forced every designer to reimagine how to present their line and I'm loving he concepts. To see what it looks like on a model who is allowed to move and pose - even DANCE in the clothes, is what I'm living for right now. To allow models to demonstrate how cool they are and how to take a look to the edge, it so fun to see and worth a full watch for me. I'm not the biggest fan of the same faces in shows, but seeing Irina Shayk over and over again... never gets boring.
