the gm at a toyato dealership that i do asked me to price a sod install for him . i asked what he wanted done , he told me , i went to his home and priced it . he agreed to the price and i began without a contract . i didnt deem it necesarry because we have a good working relationship at the dealership . so when i finished he said wow that ditchbank looks good you are going to do the other one right and i said " no " it wasnt in the bid you only wanted the little one done . so then we get in a pizzing match and he finally agrees to buy aditional sod to do the other entire ditchbank . so any way now he is happy eventhough he had to spend alot extra and i learned a lesson . never ever do anything without a contract . i think when my wife wants me to do the dishes i will have her sign a contract so that i dont get stuck with doing the laundry also , lol .
