    Actually, your supposed to find out what the lowest competitors bid is, and then cut it in half.

    Then when your all done, charge him a bunch of additions to the bid until you make a profit.

    Don't really do this

    The sad truth is some people reallly do that. Makes it hard for professionals to compete against amaturs when the bottom line is GREEN.
