Really nice guy, but time to cut ties

Its a shame. Got a nice guy that we get screened top soil from. But he is always late. My guys just sitting waiting for over an hr.

Time to find a new top soil supplier. I try to be loyal, but enough is enough.

I try my best to be loyal to my suppliers, when service is good and pricing is comparable to others I will stick with them. But when they cost me money by having guys sitting around, or even worse make the company look bad because guys are sitting around waiting, then my loyalty goes out the door.

In the end "Business is Business" I try to stay loyal. But I always say its not personal.

I'd get rid of "my guy" first, who the heck waits for an hour for something, isn't there anyone else you can get your soil from. We always have 3 or 4 different suppliers for materials.

I took it that his man went to get soil and the guy wasn't there, if he was on the job waiting then thats another story. But one hour really isn't bad there is always something to do instead of waiting.

I took it as they were sitting on a job waiting for a dump truck. I guess it's all in how you percieve it
