    I'm down at the shop and just checked messages. Call from 1:00 today was a guy wanting an estimate for installing a small system. Wants us there today at 2:00. :dizzy: How do people think we can just drop what we are doing and bee-line right over for what they want. Like we are sitting around waiting for their call. Oh yeah, I am sitting in the office doing nothing. but still..... I put those off out of spite. I know it sounds petty, but I do.

    He doesn't know yet that we don't install. I'll give him your name Tom.

    if your hanging out on lawnsite and sitting in the office doing much of nothing then i guess they were right to assume you could be right over there. And if you really have that much time on your hands then you may want to consider install instead of handing away business.

    Mmmmm... no on the installs. it's not like I'm doing nothing right now. I'm returning calls and scheduling for all three of us. Yes I have time on my hands right NOW, while it is cold this week. But we are already booked for next week, week after, and so on. And I do have a repair job in 30 minutes, 2 blocks from shop.

    How come there is no smiley face icon with a tongue sticking out? :laugh: this will have to do.

    Oh, I forgot to hit the "More" button. I knew it was somewhere.


    I was looking for one that was giving more of a raspberry though. This will do.

    Once I talked with the guy, I didn't think you'd want the referral...... just told him no, and don't know anybody to refer.
