    Funny had 28 calls on Monday , 22 yesterday, 5 today.
    Always seems like its Monday, friday, thursday tuesday wednesday.
    Been like this forever. Ive always done an estimate or two on Wednesday nights as I know I will not have a lot of calls to make.
    Weird.

    Or you get the ones that call mid May and say " Ill be home tomorrow" leaving one to respond " well you will be home alone because tomorrow has been booked for a month"

    Nope :hammerhead: keep the crew busy for booked
    jobs, but your responsibility is to garner new work; at least
    showing up will calm the savage beast.

    I'm not talking about the crew, I'm saying your job is
    to calm the storm.

    I do that quite well. One thing I find shocking is so far Ive set about 180 appointments for start ups and have only had about 7 people not say yes to the first date and time I asked them.

    I just wish it was the good old days of indoor DCVA backflows, that allowed earlier startups. Those are weeks I'll never get back. :(
