Yeah mate we still have a long way to go yet, but we achieve something each day, tomorrows job is putting in the security camera system & getting a boiler or two ready to send off.

We've been getting a few members in that I've not met before too which is great :handgestures-thumbupleft:

From the look of the photo the main thing you are achieving each day is watching a lot of cricket. When customers come in do they have to wait for ads between overs to speak to you?

My wife got a bit upset when she was in labour with our last son and the obstetrician and I were more focused on the test match than her labour. I can see how it can be the same in shops with teles. Occasionally people ask me if I have a tele they can watch but I reply that they don't want me focused on it as well.

Good luck with the shop. It is looking great.

I do love my cricket sure, but the customer always comes first ;-) Main reason for the TV is for the security video system we're putting in :handgestures-thumbupleft: it's a shame we need to do this but it lowers our insurance premiums by a bit. it also alerts my phone if something triggers it during the night so I can load the mastiff and ting in the ute to be there within 2 minutes :D

Dunno why your wife got upset, that's just not cricket :laughing-rolling:

Nice to see the cricket on too :text-+1:
I'll have to save up the pennies for a trip over there on day, and bring a BIG empty suitcase for all the goodies I could buy :pray:

No problem mate, you'll be running the Neutralizer like a pro in no time :handgestures-thumbupleft:

The 100L milk can boilers are pretty awesome hey, pics just don't do them justice.

Cheers,

Good morning,
Managed to pop in to the store this weekend and had he pleasure of meeting a very patient Mrs Mac. Thank you for your time in explaining the different bits and bobs and guiding my infantile Still design. There are options I hadn't even thought of and I'm glad I asked! Why re-invent the wheel?!?!?

Some very interesting goodies there, my traveling companion was blown away by the 7', 12" round commercial still in the shop window! He asked if I'm doing one like that :))
Maybe later!

As a customer service focused business person, I appreciate your time and effort (patience) and the way you made the sale work in my interest! Will definitely be back!
