Business etiquette

I know manners have flown the coop. But, when running a business and making money off customers, wouldn't you think the old rules would still be a good idea.doh
I am used to no service in many stores. Find it yourself or try to find a clerk. "help in aisle 7" is code for "not my job, head for the bathroom and hide".mumbling Of course that is almost better than the clerk who follows you all over trying to help. Please..just looking!frustrated I'll call you if I need you!
I need to get a roof on my barn. Started last year and still looking. Call companies. Smaller have a machine. Leave name/number/message. And NEVER get a call back. Or promises to come look. And never see nor hear them again.
Got hold one of the roofers awhile back. He called back. Said he could do a prelim off satellite views. confused Okaaaay?!dunno And still waiting to hear back. One company does it right, their message stated not til Oct for opening. THANK YOU!handshake
Leave voice mail. No one calls back. Now onto tree service. Called back. Made appointment. AND...never showed. Never called.
Talking to lawyer for trust. Started last year. Secretary says he will call, has questions. Yep...still waiting. Good thing I dont have one foot in the grave already.
Seems the norm these days is never keep a promise. Never be where you said you would. Never pick up a dang PHONE to let someone know change of plans. Glad all these folks are so dad gum important. Hope you are late for the prize drawing and your business goes belly up.very mad

I feel your pain. Unfortunately, I suffer similar situations here, and know of many others who do as well. Apparently, it's a 'new' trend, and quite popular - lack of business etiquette 101.roll eyes sigh

Custom Barns

Once known as the “cathedrals of the prairies,” the iconic barn symbolizes strength and independence. Whether you use it for horses, hobbies, or storage, a custom timber frame or post and beam barn from Timberlyne is built to stand the test of time. Design flexibility and material choices are virtually limitless. From an authentic reclaimed wood barn to full dimension rough-cut timber, the possibilities are endless.

Frame: 8x precision cut timbers, powder coated steel joinery
Walls: 2x6 girts, 1/2" sheathing, house wrap, sill, KD pine siding: 1x10 board, 1x4 batten
Roof: 4x6 purlins, KD 1x10 roof decking, roof underlayment
Second floor: 2x6 T&G decking, 2x10 joists (Optional)

A Wisconsin last will and testament is a legal document in which a testator (person to whom the will belongs) states their final wishes

yeah yeah
You can make your own will in Wisconsin, using Quicken WillMaker & Trust. However, you may want to consult a lawyer in some situations. For example, if you think that your will might be contested or if you want to disinherit your spouse, you should talk with an attorney.

The basic requirements for a Wisconsin last will and testament include the following: Age: The testator must be at least 18 years old. Capacity: The testator must be of sound mind. Signature: The will must be signed by the testator or by someone else in the testator's name in his conscious presence, by his direction.

You don't need a lawyer to create a will if you have a straightforward financial situation. A will outlines how you would like your assets distributed after your death and names a guardian for any minor children.

Thank you but none of that fits me. I have a barn that is well over 100 years. It was built by the Guildner barn builders. One of them married the homesteaders daughter and lived here. The lumber for the barn came from a logging raft. Two guys were coming down river heading to New Orleans. They spent the night at the hostel that was here. Last run in November. In the morning, the river had frozen their raft in. They wintered here and bartered the raft. There are massive wood pegged timbers that run the whole length of the barn. I just need a second shingle roof done. Fast, easy, simple. But roofers either are busy or only want high price jobs on mcmansions.
As far as a lawyer goes...I have to do a trust because my inheritors are not related. And to avoid probate, you need a trust. I have the basis done, I am a paralegal. But, to be official and not mess up with the and ors, need it done by an estate lawyer. If he ever gets it done!!!
I have done all the roofs on the farm myself. The barn is not one! It takes scaffolding and the 2xs due to two story side and the steep pitch. Not a job for one person much less an old woman.
Once upon a time a long time ago, I gave a hand replacing Shingles on a roof in Puyallup in Washington State.
It is actually quite an art correctly splitting and fitting shingles.
