    I agree we are independent businessmen and being independent we can run our businesses as we see fit. I would not call you an IDIOT either...Well not seriously.

    I believe the wearing booties is a good idea for many service businesses. If you are a plumber, hvac technician, appliance repair it only makes sense not to track up the clients home.

    However when we are there to perform carpet cleaning, wearing booties makes no sense. If we were to track up the carpet, we would clean it.

    To do it because it makes the client feel better...what about the client that realizes it makes no sense. Hard to defend your reasoning, if asked.

    We might get a call once or twice a year about if we wear them while cleaning. We explaining there is no reason to and they understand.

    We will wear them when cleaning air ducts to avoid tracking and then needing to clean their carpet.

    IDIOT! :winky:

    I went to do a quote last week, went to remove my shoes at the door. And she said since I spoke to you on the ph I've decided your doing my carpets so keep them on.

    Showing respect for customer to me is in corner guards, walkoff mats and general conduct, if some choose to go further so be it but I wont wear booties

    Yes but at least I'm not a dumbasshole! If I'm going to do something, I have a reason. Not just because some dumbasshole thinks it looks good. :winky:

    I’m not calling you an a-hole, or an idiot.
    Let’s just agree, to disagree on this...

    I wasn't trying to influence you. Do what you want to do, it's your business.

    I agree with Richard. I take off my shoes to do an estimate. I do not wear booties when cleaning, real pain in the ass and a safety issue especially going up or down stairs. I wear them if I have to exit the home and re-enter. I wonder how many booty wearing guys wear them on commercial jobs?

    I think there was a communication error. We average about 10k a week in my area rug cleaning division.

    Sincerely,
    The board idiot

    PS hog guy from Alabama is welcomed to edit any of my bathroom paperwork as long as he understands we flush in Kalifonia.

    I figured when I read the rules, that the Joe was Joe Appleby, so I read it with his accent in mind. Knowing Joe, those posted rules certainly match his style of doing business. And from what I have seen and heard, Appleby's would be an excellent company to work for.

    His employees seem happy, loyal, and very enthusiastic to work and learn. Joe himself is upbeat and super willing to share information with others. Just an all around good guy. You can see it reflected in his bathroom reading materials and in his employees.
