Yeah, I'm sure they would appreciate that! Its much better to make friends than enemies in this industry. People like that just plain SUCK! And if one of my customers called another service because we were in a situation like that I'd say screw you keep 'em!

Wow...didn't expect to see the lecture coming. I skimmed the topic quickly and responded before i had put a lot of thought into it. It would be better to just tell her no.
