So, I need some work done on my house and I am having trouble finding a decent contractor. My friend is a realtor and sent me a recommendation of the person the company she works for uses. I called the number, left a message stating I needed a call back whether he could help me or not. Later I am working, have my head /concentration completely in a program and I get a text from an number I don't recognize. "Can I call you later?" So, what do I say, I don't know who it is so I text "I don't know who you are." and get no answer. The next day I check the number thinking maybe it was the contractor and I was right, it was. Still haven't heard from him. I called again and his phone went straight to voicemail so I figure, 1. he is using his cell phone as his business phone, not very encouraging to me 2. he must be under 25 if he thinks texting instead of calling is ok. 3. he must not need the work if he didn't answer my text.
What kind of business person would send a text without identifying themselves? Even a 20 year old should know that.
I know I am old and crotchety but this seems extraordinarily idiotic for him to do that.
Got home and heard some noise from under a tarp I have on the porch. Okay, either a squirrel or snake. So I start moving the edges of the tarp, waiting for something to fly out from under it. Out comes smokey the kitten. Apparently it was comfy till I disturbed it.
