  1. Dear Tim,

    Contractors and/or tradesmen also need to be treated with respect... Pay them accordingly and on time. Otherwise they can really mischievous...



  2. Tim,

    Yes, that looked easy. But you're Tim Carter/Askthebuilder.com. It's hard to imagine that the supplier you talked to didn't know who you were, especially with the cameraman trailing along. It seems a bit unrealistic to think that there will be such immediate cooperation (or any at all) when a nobody-in-particular stops by the supplier and asks for the owner to chat.

    It could happen that way, but it doesn't seem likely.

  3. Well, the supplier came to the counter miked, so, no, this was not an impromptu visit! Tim should not have play-acted this.

    Doctors often won't recommend others, out of fear of being sued.

    I think that his advice is worth trying, since it only costs you less than a day of driving around your city.

    • Thanks for your comment Duds. How else are you going to get great audio unless he's wearing a mic. I don't have a full-blown production crew with an audio person handling a moving boom microphone. So as not to disrupt their business, I had to pre-arrange the visit. That's pretty much common sense. 😉
