A debate about what time is acceptable to send a text message is raging after a woman asked for a carpet quote after midnight.

She was met with a fierce response from the fitter when she got in touch while he was in bed.

The tradesman gave a foul-mouthed reply when interior designer Evandra asked him to price up a job at 12.15am.

She didn't like the tone of his response – so took her grumble to Twitter.

But she didn't get the sympathy she was hoping for after trying to call the man out on social media.

It started a debate about what is the latest time you can send text messages – but many still came down on her side.

He replied to her late night request: "Here's a quote!! Who the f*** asks for carpets at 12:15am?"

Evandra shared a screenshot of the text and tweeted: "Loooll??? But what in the name of customer service have I just experienced."

Her stance created a divide – and later asked her followers to vote on who was is the wrong.

One user wrote: "The notification most likely woke him up? I’d be p***** as hell if someone texted me at that hour about work and it’s not an emergency."

Another said: "Why not just message in the morning?" while she was also called "entitled".

But there was plenty of support for her as well.

A Twitter user posted: "He could have just replied in the morning – it's not like you rang them."

Another said: "He should have just put his phone on silent."

And a third said: "Just don't respond until your 'working hours' start – simple as that."

Evandra later went off on a rant about how people should invest in business phones if they don't want to be disturbed.

She said: "MUTED as some are upset about PAYING CUSTOMERS enquiring at their own convenience.

"Top tip: You should invest in a business phone which you switch off after your shift!

"Now why don't the 'it's your fault' merchants f*** offfff and pay for my new carpet."
