    Don'tcha just love it when you bid a job and the customer calls you back saying they found someone to do the job for half what I bid and then calls a week later complaining that the other person never showed or worse, did a really crummy job?
    And worst of worse, wants to try to negotiate my price all over again. Still thinks my bid was too high. Then she starts accusing me of being in cahoots with the other guy. I didn't have much to do for a bit so I let her talk. Should have just hung up but for some reason it tickled me.
    Don't think I want to work for her.:laugh:

    A recent bid that I did.

    customer: $25 is too much for 10K SF. My other guy charged $18.

    me: call your other guy.

    customer: he went out of business

    me: what happened?

    customer: he said he wasn't profitible.

    me: I'm still in business and trying to stay profitible. That's why it's $25.

    customer: I'll look for someone else.

    me: Thanks...so will I.
