Lucky her, it's usually the home demolition guys that show up at the wrong address.

"I was out grocery shopping and I don't lock my door. I live in a little town bordering Detroit, super safe."

-Not anymore that you just broadcast everywhere your location and that you don't lock your doors/windows.

When your sugar daddy has a construction company and you did that thing he likes for the 1,000th time

It's The Daily Star, so I question the existence of home renovators, but wouldn't her kitchen have to be identical to the correct house for custom countertops to fit?
 
2022-07-14 2:15:39 PM  
I think she's just trying to go viral.  Something is off.  Why pay the bill?  I can't imagine a contractor starting work without talking to anyone at all

This is the second time something like this has happened to her in a year.  I'm going to go out on a limb and say this one at least was staged after the first one went viral and she saw what that did to her view counts (if that one was even real either).

I will never understand this mindset of small towns somehow being "safe" from crime. like, okay - maybe you're less likely to randomly get shot or mugged, but property theft is rampant is small towns - especially if your "little town" has a meth / heroin problem.

remember last summer when there was that major uptick with catalytic converter? a very large chunk of those thefts happened in small towns out in the middle of bumfark "it doesn't happen here" nowhere.

They did it a few months ago too, getting dimensions for her custom countertop.
 
2022-07-14 2:20:15 PM  
I'm calling BS on this story. Granite counters are custom measured and fit. If they had "showed up at the wrong house" the counter tops wouldn't have fit right.

People are gullible, incredulous, and stupid.

News at 11.

Lying "influencer" is lying.

This it is total bullshiat.

Not only that when we had our counter tops re-done, even measured they took hours to install.   The sink has to be a particular kind, the whole shebang.

She likely has a bet with a friend to see how dumb of a story she can get posted to the I terwebs

In America, after the company realized the mistake, they'd come back and tear it all back out if you didn't pay, and not bother to replace the original work.
 
2022-07-14 2:36:21 PM  
Yes, this really happened, And Chloe is definitely not an Instagram attention whore trying to get clicks.
 
2022-07-14 2:38:38 PM  
Hey, lady
What's with the lips?

Nevermind, you leave the door unlocked

Ill ask you in person
 
2022-07-14 2:40:45 PM  
Enough with this clickbait BS. In the real world, the crew would show up sporadically, come unprepared and finish the job six months late and 25% over budget.
 
2022-07-14 2:42:35 PM  
One time this Instagram influencer came to the wrong house and blew me. I kept saying baby you got the wrong house. Totally true story.

She says it's a "cookie cutter" neighborhood where all the houses are the same. I have lived in such houses and installed my own quartz countertops, it's within the realm of possibility. What sets off my BS detector is that they tried to bill her and she paid the bill. Also, this is the second time workers have shown up at her house by mistake? So, while possible, it's exceedingly improbable.

That's a hell of a coincidence. I've spent a few quality weekends in your neighborhood, going house-to-house and when an unlocked door, I go in, claim I'm looking for someone else, and then blow random guys. LOL! #notgay

Could they show up here, and double the size of our kitchen while they're at it (without making the library, er, "family room", smaller?
 
2022-07-14 3:02:28 PM  
I was helping my buddy move and as we loaded up the first load in the morning, a roofing crew was showing up to the house across the street and getting to work.

That evening, right as we finished, they were finishing also... just cleaning up the mess.  Then a truck pulled up and a VERY angry boss jumped out... They were supposed to replace the roof on the house next door!

Well, they had to have her say something to deflect from the preposterous implausibility of the entire idiot story.

In the history of things that didn't happen, this didn't happen most of all.

She says she paid for it. LOL. Yeah, this story isn't sounding right at all.
 
2022-07-14 3:37:29 PM  
I am in home improvement. This story isn't possible. Walking into a home without permission with the homeowner present and the trades all showing up getting an entire kitchen installed in one day while she is out is laughable. And everything just happens to fit perfectly is pure and simple BS. And she paid for the mistake, please.

Boss learned his lesson to show up at the beginning of a project, not just at the end.

Why can't these guys show up at my house? My simple renovation projects take weeks/months, and usually several angry phone calls.
 
2022-07-14 3:54:51 PM  
She mentioned in that video: "They're at the wrong house but I'm not going to stop them because I'd love to have free concrete - or a deck, whatever they're building."

"...and that's why I'm gonna pay that bill when they present it. SO I can get free stuff!"

I don't think this woman knows how "free" works.

Well with the gloryhole this random crew of builders installed in my kitchen instead of this hot intagram chick's kitchen it's not gay if you don't know what's on the other side.

There's actually tutorials out there that explain every step to getting free cabinets, among other things, from the big box stores.

/ my dad got screwed by someone that did it (was a licensed remodeler that did contract jobs for Lowes). Customer got 12 grand of cabinets for free, dad got $0.

Yep... Sure, we've had 100% legit "Workers show up at the wrong house" stories before, and sure, maybe they were already started when she walked in, but not with everything working out exactly perfect in the end, and then her willingly paying for work that she didn't ask for or want? Yeah, I agree, none of this shiat makes sense.

Especially with kitchen freaking counters.

I agree. In the last year, I've had my roof, and then the roof on the shed in the back yard replaced. They ring the doorbell. The crew chief talks to me.

Well, people normally steal what they see and can case out.  I live in a very rural place, at the end of a long dead end road with only a few houses on it, and you can't see my house from that road due to it being on a wooded acreage.  Nobody drives by our house, so nobody knows if we have anything to steal.  Cameras, fences, and very large dogs may also help.

I call bs. I'm on week 7 of my kitchen remodel and I still don't have countertops. The installers would have known immediately it was the wrong house. The old backsplash and the fact the old countertops were still there would have been a dead giveaway.

It IS America.

Hence the "little town bordering Detroit" part.
 
2022-07-14 6:00:09 PM  
Sure, lady.  I'm sure it was also a total surprise when they measured your countertops the week prior to them arriving to install because they don't cut most elements of a countertop on site.

I used to live in Minneapolis.  I keep track, and my old neighborhood has at least one murder within 6 blocks of my old house  every year.  Where I live now, hasn't had a murder in over 100 years.  I like those odds quite a bit better.
