    They didn't forget about the other contractor, they called numbers like yours. The contractor who shows up first wins. I'd leave the other ones, chances are the same thing will happen or worse you'll have to chase your money when you're done.

    I use to drive around all day and knock on doors when I was younger. I was a clean cut kid and wore nice work clothes. I would knock on the door with my card in my hand and sell those yards all day long.

    When I pull up to a property and it's either already done or someone else is there doing it, with a new customer that's usually the kiss of death, if I call them back it's only to give them the limp fish treatment (basically like giving a limp fish handshake, but over the phone).
