so i get a call the other day a guy wants a price to demolition a pond project of his and fill it in . i go over and give him a price and he says to go ahead and do it . so i tell him that we have to sign a contract to protect both of us . he reads over it and says "i have a clause to where if i have to hire a lawyer i can collect atty fees and that that aint right" . then goes on to tell me that he wrote contracts for the govt for like 30 years and he will not sign one . i also told him i needed a deposit and he said"there aint no way he is going to give a perfect stranger a deposit ".but he says"he will pay me in full when done". so i say to my self yeh right i have been through that song and dance before and i aint gonna do it again . so i left never to return . and no matter what i aint gonna extend credit without a contract and deposit . oh well .
