And there was this one. Guy started @ 9am & was still there @ 10.30pm that night to do 4m2. This is the result the customer got:

After removal of the tiles I noticed some areas were packed to at least 25mm with ready mixed addy. The plasterboard had been attempted to be stuck to the brick wall with a 50mm cavity with ready mixed too.

He stuck the tiles to painted existing tiles

I started @ 9am, removed both sets of tiles, re-sheeted, tiled, grouted & siliconed by 3pm. God knows what he was doing to be there that length of time. Customer even bought him a chippy @ 7pm as they felt bad for him.

Heres the end result with Milford Cream I think it was

i know that Blob fixing or dot/dab or whatever you like to call it, is frowned -on and not -up to BS, but it's equally still not illegal to fix like this it's just another way to fix tile ( i and most on here would never dream of fixing like this ) but as said i think it allowable !!! technically .......
