    What do you think about a Facility Manager that hires another LCO to do a special job just because the LCO offered him a special price on a "Christmas Clean-up" and not notify you while you were still under contract?:angry:

    if the clean-up was in your contract, i would charge them for it!! but if the clean-up should have been done in nov and you didnt do it, well then its your fault.......
