advice for contractors that want my business:

If you want the job, or even to offer a bid, how about you don't return my call at SEVEN IN THE FUCKING MORNING? Believe it or not, there are homeowners out there that work from noon until 9pm who's first thought when the phone rings that early in the morning is "Oh, shit, mom died".

One of them called Monday morning at 7:15, and I groggily answered the phone; when it was only a roofer and not an emergency, I was in a real bad mood. Then Tuesday morning, another roofer did the same damn thing.
Perhaps it's my fault for not saying "hey, I wake up at 10, don't call before 9:30" when I left msgs on Friday afternoon, but I just assumed that since even telemarketers are prohibited from calling before 8am, other people would follow that rule of thumb.
