Fair enough but what do you do when you meet honest polite employers/potential customers?
Do you ...
A. Be honest to them and deliver extra value?
B. Be honest to them but charge a premium because you can?
C. Be honest to them but under deliver because you can?
D. Charge them an arm and a leg because you are being polite/honest?
E. Or simply try to squeeze as much as you can out of them because they are honest polite people?
F. Dictate your terms to them because you can. i.e. bully them because they are honest and polite/kind.
So from the above which one represent you? Be honest and be polite. I am.
i used to get the arse-ache with people asking for me to come around and quote. generally if it was a small job such as fitting a door i could quote over the phone, if it was bigger then the travel, the calculating, printing and delivering the quote would be costing me time.
it is one of the reasons i ended up working on new builds as there were no customers to deal with, no time wasters and (usually) no hidden surprises and no wrangling about why the cost for the job had gone up....
