Interesting comment, I recently lost a job because I brought my son on an estimate because I had to watch him that day. The response was "we are not sure that you will be a good match. We need someone that can provide for our needs reliably without interference from personal matters." Now obviously this is a db comment and not a customer I would want. Not to mention one of the top things we are known for is reliability. I have missed holidays and left funerals to deal with clients. This was simply based on me holding my sleeping infant son while talking to the client.

Now on the other side of things I have about 10 customers that outfitted him better than half his relatives last christmas.
