It can be frustrating. There's nothing wrong with venting your frustration.

The reason why electricians and other repair-related professions require licenses (and typically bonds to cover the work you perform) is to protect your customers from honest accidents as well as incompetent work. Sure, many electrical repairs are simple and easily performed by non-licensed homeowners without problem. However, if you are paying somebody to come in and do the work you want to make sure that person is competent and won't burn your house down but if they do, at least you want to be able to recover for your losses against them (which is why the license often requires you to carry a bond).
