I had a Tiler come into the store yesterday with some KFC I might add thank you very much. Asked him how work was. He showed me how clean his hands were and told me " no work for five weeks" . Now I know he has been into the shop a few times over this time and i have got to know him quite well, but he never said a word. I felt stink because I had no idea. I told him he should have said something as we are always being asked about a tiler. The thing is, you won't get anywhere if you don't communicate. Some of the most successful people are also great communicators. So if times are tough, for goodness sakes don't keep it to yourself. Don't let pride be the last thing that beats you. Since Ive been on the other side of the counter I've come to realize that if you get to know and frequently visit your local Tile Store we will keep you in mind when asked about local Tilers, especially if we know you are short of work. This is another reason why sites like this can be good for the tradesmen. If any of you guys need a hand or are looking for a bit of work to tide you over then this is where you can make your request. Let's not be strangers, aye guys.
