You‟ve discovered some nagging (DIY!!!) problem or other at home that needs fixing and you pop down to the local Hardware, DIY or Paint Store where you ask… “What would you suggest or recommend to stop the paint peeling off my walls, freshen up my ugly faded deck, refurbish my rusty railings, prevent black mould on my walls, my flat roof needs attention or whatever”
Smiling back nervously, and with a definite touch of„ ‘I wish you didn’t ask ME that’ s/he
(assistant) politely replies…..
“Hmmmmm, that’s a new one on me…I don’t really know which product will work best for you, but you could take a look down there on the third aisle, second shelf down beside the thinners… you might find something suitable there!!”
Or, in other words… one of those “Leave me alone because I don’t know” answers… Sound familiar?
To be fair, people in those jobs & most broad range stores are asked thousands of different questions, so it is impossible for them to know all the answers… who tells them?
Your questions need answers only a specialist in those matters can provide.
