No- this is a know it all customer-I want the customer to order all my parts. I really like it when they use their own logic. This is too funny-thanks for posting.

I always wanted to start another company where I would do all the negotiating and then at the day of the installation all dress like Rastafarians. I just kind of think it might be fun to every once in a while do a completely terrible job.
Many years ago (I never call price shoppers back) I was called in for a heating quote. The customer was pretty upfront concerning pricing, kind of over the top actually.
At one point completely worn out by this guy I said "So price is the only consideration?" He said yes, the ONLY consideration. My reply was "Ok, we can do the complete heating install for $1000".
He stopped and looked very confused, telling me that was $2000 cheaper then anyone else had bid, and he knew the heater cost $1200. I told him I could do the job for that price but I would have to install a heater that fell off the loading dock, and pick up a few installers from the Home Depot parking lot. He then said no F'ing way is he going for that. So price is not the ONLY consideration?
He signed a contract, but later stopped payment on the check because a guy told him on the phone he would cut $500 off my price. And that is why I don't bother calling these guys back anymore.

I am pretty sure memoe was not human but a computer virus. IF he was some kids grandpa there is a serial killer in the making...it was like watching one of those newscasters that had a brain scramble and gibberish comes out their mouths.
I mean REALLY?

By the way, when approached by clowns like this I reply with "Come down to (my competitors) place of business and we'll discuss ways to make it totally free! Bring a pumpkin or any type of gourd in for trade!
