Take my advice and don't offer me any of your own.
My local Trading Standards office - consulted recently over a disastrous kitchen installation that started in December - has kindly sent me a sticker to display on my door.
Grateful though I am, I really can't go along with this business of not wanting free advice. I mean, who'd turn down something that's free? Accountants and solicitors charge a lot of money, so if someone knocked at your door offering financial or legal advice on a pro bono basis, you'd be a fool not to take it.
Just the other day, a nice man called round and told me I had a few slates missing off my roof. He said he'd have them fixed in next to no time. That's old-fashioned courtesy that you just can't knock.
