Every year I call my customers in early March to see who will retain my services in the new season. Some don't answer the phone. Some don't return calls after I leave a message. Sometimes I have to pursue for days and even weeks before getting a reply. There are customers who give me the ax after I've worked for them for years without getting complaints from them about my work or my price. I know exactly what most rich people think of us in this business. I can't use that language here. Still, don't we earn enough RESPECT that we deserve at least a return phone call saying, "You and your work suck, and we already got someone else" ? Maybe I AM Rodney Dangerfield.
