desperate to pay
If I were out of work right now I would become a facilitator. A middle man if you will that does nothing but help busy people get things done around their homes. In the last three days I have reached out to roughly 20 different trades by phone through email and on the internet to get bids on the things I need done around this house and the only people to get back with me are those that I have a personal relationship with. I am trying to give my money out in return for service and no one wants to call me back or email. the bitch of which is I am running out of time. This week was supposed to be collect bids week at night so I could craft the delicate schedule puzzle this weekend. A schedule is hard to make when no one has bid the work.
Now add in my upcoming almost 20 straight days on the road and that is a recipe for nothing getting done. I am really looking for a small project project manager. A To Do list wrangler. Someone to take this giant pile and turn it into done. This cant be that hard I just need someone to do it. Seriously this is a valid business idea and I even have a corny name that you can have if you are in my area: TO DOne. (I will expect a deep discount for helping you get on your feet but we can talk about that later) I give you my complete list of stuff, the time frame, and budget, we negotiate your fee, and I stop worrying about it. Simple right?
But NO. I’m going to keep beating my head against the phone trying to get someone to stop by. And woe to the next tradesman who whines to me about how bad the economy is. Maybe you just suck at the business part of your business like actually serving your customers. Holy crapcakes I am frustrated. I need to go because half of the people I contacted are from Angie’s List and I will now officially bitch out loud and proud about their lack of response. I really hate this shite plus I am getting my mental menstruation as I prepare for this massive road trip. Good times here at stupidtom central.
