    People who drive 55 in the left lane, or people who ride in the left lane when there is no one around them for miles, or people who ride in the left lane doing the same speed as the car next to them, holding up traffic. Lead, follow or get the freak out of the way.

    Hi, there was a sign at the factory door of the last place I worked at before retirement......."Strictly no access to work area by general public".

    What gets done on the job is what it costs to do the job......customer pays for the job irrespective......and he is not qualified to cost the job.

    If the customer won't accept the job cost up front..........piss him off or he'll argue about the cost when the job is finished.

    While having no first hand or direct experience I'm told "Preparation H" is not as effective, nor the same product it used to be....

    After being married to the same wonderful girl for 37 years, my mother in law still says I don't deserve her daughter.

    I've got enough money to openly purchase most anything wanted without justification, but I'm too damned cheap to do it.

    Do I have a gripe? Best not get me started.

    Customers who claim a custom part is needed ASAP and is "HOT HOT HOT"....then I don't receive a PO until a week later which would only give me 1 day to make the parts.

    Eh. I'd volunteer in a low income clinic, maybe. But I need experience in mental health/psychiatric field...needless to say they didn't count me being a member on this forum as experience. Ho-hum.

    I think her hanging out here counts as helping the mentally challenged.

    Re: Got A Gripe?

    I've got a gripe. Master combination padlocks. They are garbage, they won't open or close properly. People by them because they assume that master makes good locks, well, they used to. I don't buy them because they are crap. But it seems like every job site I go to has one of these lock shaped turds on the gate. If you need a combination lock, I can recommend the Ace store brand.

    Yup, got a customer just like that.
    Said they'd get PO's to me for two jobs, rang a week later to ask if the jobs were done....."No PO, no start job"......had the PO's 5 minutes later.

    I think we have the same customer!

    I have another customer that I build offroad parts for.

    He kept changing his mind on what he wanted and 4 written estimates later he finally says he wants to order them. Great!

    No PO, nothing....3 weeks goes by and he emails asking where his parts are. I say, "No PO + No deposit = no parts!"

    He says, "I didn't know about the deposit".....

    Except that it was clearly written on the TERMS section of the (4) estimates I provided him...

    Some people just shouldn't try to be in business.

    Ughh. I feel her pain. I wanted to get something relatively close to home, after today I don't think its happening. If I have to drive far, I'd be losing a big chunk of change. Big thing that sucks about living in the country.
    The only other option is in home healthcare, and I'm DEFINITELY NOT ready for that. Nothing scarier than that to a newbie.
