The only way I would not show up is if I felt I was tricked into giving the too low price.
As far as quoting a higher price, that won't fly with me but I have been known to raise the price by $5 mid-season, just kinda slip it in there, it's still too low but it does help... Still, it's a tricky gamble. I have also been upfront about it, finish the job and come time to get paid, just let it out, let them know I made a mistake, sometimes it works.
