    Default Electrician

    Hi

    Calling an electrician to restore mains power had, so far, proved too great a concession for either him or Rodger.

    What does -had, so far, proved too great a concession for either him or Rodger- mean?

    Thanks

    They didn't want to call an electrician because that would, I think, be an admission that they didn't know how to fix it. Either that or they didn't want to pay for the job.
