Tradie's 'embarrassing' mistake after showing up at wrong house

·2-min read

A tradesman from Melbourne has accidentally ripped up the wrong homeowner's backyard, taking TikTok along for the ride.

Dreigan Fisher, known as @Dafishaaa on TikTok, arrived at a home before his boss and started ripping up pavers in the backyard.

However, he was starting the job at the wrong house.

"What a way to start the day, huh," he says in a video shared to TikTok.

He explains he got a text to say the job was at number 37 on a street in Cranbourne West and started to rip up the paving stones in the backyard.

"I wait for the client to come in with the excavator, waited for Tyler [his boss], pulled up the pavers, only to find up there’s a 37 all the way down there too,” he said on TikTok, gesturing down the street.

“I’ve just gone to a complete stranger's house, got them to open up the shed, pulled up their pavers, waited for my boss, just to find out it’s the wrong house. F**k.”

He completed the post with the hashtags "embarrassing" and and "will be back to replace your pavers".

Dreigan has shared only two videos on TikTok to date, the first being the video after he realised his mistake which has racked up over 178,000 views. 

The second was from his bosses point of view.

"He started ripping up pavers, ready for a job that's not gonna happen," his boss Tyler Brooks said in the TikTok video.

Tyler explained now they are going to have to put back the pavers — though he admits they not going in well.

"We're sorry!" he says on the video.

Because the pavers weren't going in well, Tyler says it looked as though they would have to replace them.

Fortunately for Dreigan, his boss didn't blame him for the mishap, but rather the layout of the street.

“It’s a really stupid setup because it’s all part of the one block of units but the end unit belongs to a different street but has the same number 37,” Mr Brooks told

“Dreigan is a loyal worker who doesn’t answer back, just does what he’s told. As you saw, he did what I asked. It was just unfortunate that there was another 37, three houses away,” he continued.

“Can’t blame him, he did everything right.”

Several others in the comments also blamed the street's layout opposed to Dreigan, with some saying the mishap was not his fault.
