    Do you enclose a cover letter with your bid?

    Sorry Bob ... don't like it.

    Kris, it's not mine. It belongs to a friend of mine who sent it to a prospective customer.

    It's terrible. If I received something like that as a prospective customer, I would have serious doubts about that company's ability to service my account.

    Yes it needs a grammar check and there are only a couple sentences on it!

    Ditto what Rodfather said. It reads as though it was written by a high school dropout.

    I will e-mail you one that I did and had success with in the past. That cover letter is simply....well,...... horrible. I know your punctuation and ability to put a complete sentence together is better than that!

    I sometimes with this forum had two segments:

    One for professionals, the other for uneducated guys trying to earn a buck.

    That letter is a total joke.
