This is the kind of s*%! that kills me. I went and bid on a job at a townhouse last night (apparently the owner had a stroke and could no longer care for the yard) I spoke w/ her sister. The place had been very meticulously maintained and I knew quality control would need to be top notch. So I give my price offered to let her take other bids before I could finish my sentence her pen was moving. Well today she calls to let me know she discussed it w/ her husband and sister and determined my price is too high. Then had the nerve to ask if "I could sharpen my pencil" . Needless to say I told her my policy on negotiating, I DON'T!!! I suppose I should thank her for saving me the headache that would have been dealing w/ her. Does anyone do price negotiations after the ink is dry?
