    I had an opportunity to submit a proposal for 10 convenience stores with the possibility of getting as many as I could handle, really. I new the high and low, it was only $10 difference. I shaved $1.50 off the high and sent in a nice proposal with all the smooching included. I got it back with a request to cut every 10 days instead of weekly. DOH!!! I should have stated a monthly price instead of weekly, agreed? By the way, what kind of faux paux have you made when submitting bids?

    Sometimes I would forget to include certain things: ie, mulch on a planting job, etc.
