I show up for an estimate today right on time and I see another contractor is speaking with the client. I have 2 clients to see, one at 11 the other just after. Back patio front walkway etc.. I decide to drive on and I'll check it out a bit later, I go do a few chores and drive by, around 1/2 hour later, still there, one hour later, guy is still there!! Forget it, I'm gone, don't need the hassle.
Get back to the office and I have a call waiting, its the guy who was supposed to meet me at 11. Says "where were you, we had an apointment and you didn't show" !!! . Seems like he thought nothing of it too have two estimaters there at the same time. Unbelievable. What's wrong with people these days? Anyhow I'm meeting him tomorrow and I'll fill him in on proper protocol while I'm there. Worst of this is that he had one of my competitors do some work there this year and its great. I'm hoping 2013 is not going to start like this!
Just had to get it off my shoulders!
