i got some work in this real nice development, so i put fliers out in the whole development in an effort to get more clients there. well, i got a phone call for an estimate, i went by, and gave her a price, she says can u do it for $5 less? i said no way. she said if u do, ill get my 2 neighbors hire u too. i said well, y would i want to do u, and all yur neighbors for $5 less than what its worth? she said, no, just charge them regular, and give me the discount for getting them 4 u. i said, well, if they agree to my price, i can do it. i went by today with contracts, they all refused to sign a contract, said they would rather do it "on the honor system" i laughed, said no thanks, and politely left. i just got this gut feeling, if they wouldnt sign a simple agreement, which really only says ill do xyz work, and u will pay xyz for it, i have to think they r not trustworthy. would any of u guys have just said ok, and started working?
