This guest post from Doris Dillon When my dad opened his new office for his roofing business, he hired me to run the front office. We have a lot of people in and out of here every day. Sometimes there are workers just coming through, and other times we have customers in the waiting room. The other day we had a customer that was waiting for his appointment to talk about getting a new roof. He went on and on about the house they had just bought. He said it was a fixer upper. So apparently they were having to do a lot of work before they moved in. He told me that the first thing they did was a shop for electricity through Green Mountain power in Irving. Then after they got the power turned on they could see everything that was going to have to be repaired or replaced. He went on and on about his house and how much money he was going to have to spend on it. I thought he was never going to hush. I decided right then that my dad was going to have to give me a raise for listening to all his clients.
