New Paper: Electrician bullied me

9 December 2005

The New Paper

I refer to the letter by Ms Lynn Aw entitled, "Electrician bullied me" (TNP, 08 Dec 2005).

Ms Aw shared her unfortunate experience with an electrician engaged by her to fix her faulty toilet light. She found the contractor through an advertisement in the newspaper.
