    What you have there is a price shopper, be glad you got out as soon as you did so you can fill that spot with someone who wants to find a quality co and stick with them.

    with my commercial contracts if they cancel within the year they pay me a $$$ early termination fee. maybe i should put that in my residential agreement?
