It's funny how miserable some are

I had priced some work for some people. And this is the e-mail in it's entirety that the woman sent me this am (without her name which I omitted)

"No thank you. This estimate is way too high."


LOL - No "thank you for your time". That's ok, Karma will get her.

I also agree.

And also, we'll see when we she gets a few other quotes and they all come in the same range except for the one shitty hack that does it for $10 and she'll be unhappy then too. No winning with people like that.

I certainly hope you didn't waste any time and corrected her. It's not an estimate its a proposal.

Estimate isnt too high, she just cant afford to have a reputable business do the work.

She'll put an ad on craigslist looking for some hack to do it in his spare time and mess the whole job up. Then it will cost her double!!!
