keep telling myself I'm going to do that myself, but still haven't picked up an interior set. But then again, for some strange reason I can't quite figure out they never even seem to notice my feet.

I take one of my boots off. Usually my left one because it has a tendancy to itch more.

I have been asked to remove my boots when giving a bid,but never when doing the work.
When the super clean jobs come up I do what I need to do to keep it clean.
As little as using my interior drops, to making a sealed tent walkway to the work areas.
I have a box of shoe covers in the van that haven't been touched in months.

I've only been asked to remove my shoes 3 times. Twice by foreign customers and once by a woman who just had new carpet laid. However, I always ask before entering.

Reminds me of a job I did for an interior decorator years ago.
I had just met her while working for one of her friends,she liked my work and wanted me to come paint a few rooms in her house.
Nice place with a long paved driveway,white fence,convertible Mercedes in the open garage. I rolled in thinking this is gonna be a good one.
Her and her 10 year old son greeted me at the door when I arrived.
I had my black lab in the back of my pick up,and the boy asked his mom and I if he could play with her while we were talking.
While we were talking in one of the rooms,the dog and the boy ran past the doorway down the hall. When I went to get my dog she told me not to worry about it because they had dogs.
So were walking through each room one by one when we came around a corner and right in the middle of the room,on her nice white carpet is a big fresh pile of dog crap.
I was mortified!
Surprisingly,the lady walked to the kitchen grabbed a handful of paper towels and scooped it up like it was no big deal. She gave it to the kid and he threw it out somewhere. She said that spot is where her dog had an accident.
She turned out to be one of my favorite customers.
Her husband owns a duck club- when he has an open blind he will let me hunt there to this day,two dogs later.
To keep it related to the op-I did not take my shoes off when I gave that bid.

Wouldn't happen to be Delavan where you hunt?

Another issue I have with contractors, bringing your dog to the job site. What the heck is that all about? How do you know I don't have a cat that has anxiety issues, or a wife that sees every dog bigger than a Daschund to be a lethal threat ? Huh?..Huh? what about that!

lol-
She would never jump out until I gave her the go ahead-even when a cat would taunt her. My work van had a platform behind the driver seat and she would hang out there all day,with the slider open.
I have hunted near Delavan- south of colusa. The club I mentioned is in Gridley. I have a few rice farmers around Marysville that I call when I get the urge.

It is a courtesy. Your outside shoe have stepped in spit, worms on the walkway, poop from others shoes.

Being PROFESSIONAL is taking off your shoes when in someones home.

Take them off at estimates but not when painting....maybe take them off on the way to the room your painting then put them back on if carpet is super nice...I don't wear "booties" and never will.....
