    Lady calls me up for an estimate. Sounds like she's got an attitude in her message. I call up and get her husband. He has even more of an attitude.
    I had to call her again because are times conflicted and she was very pleasant this time.
    I saw her this evening. I'm talking with her, another lco pulls up and she gets embarrased. Doesn't bother me. 30 seconds later I hear this yelling "WILL YOU MOVE YOUR TRUCK!!" I turned around and the wife says I think he's talking to you. I said me? YEAH!! He yells out again "HE'S GOT A MILLION PLACES TO PARK AND HE PARKS IN FRONT OF MY GARAGE" I get into my truck now it's GOD!@#$%!! I park it someplace else now. gets out of his car again and his wife tells him to be polite ya da ya da. He yells again HE'S GOT A MILLION PLACES TO PARK AND HE PARKS THERE" I was about to leave but I kept cool. His wife comes over and is VERY apologetic. Then starts complimenting me about my eyes which was a first for me in my life. probably trying to apologize again. I've already decided I'm not working for them. The other lco is gone by now.
    Should I send a HIGH estimate or just forget them?

    Forget them..if the man is talking like your not even there and you are there this is a sign that he will not respect you at all.Shine this job on unless you like to be treated like a slave.

    Are you saying that the husband is a LCO and the wife is hiring you?? Or are you saying you were parked in front of the neighbors garage??

    My first question is always to do with where I am parked.
    It's just polite.

    It's in a way sort of like coming in a bad mood to find a vacuum cleaner salesman sitting in your chair.
    But it sure doesn't excuse the rudeness...
