Resturant customer calls up. Needs air conditioning. He took over the place a 2 years ago. From the description it sounded like one I estimated for the previous owners a few years back.
I say to the guy," I quoted this job a few years back. I could probably use my old engineering if nothing has changed." He said, "Oh yes it has changed all I need is the outdoor thing." " I had XYZ Sheet Metal put in an air handler and ducting. Now he saids because of government regulations he can't get a condensing unit."
Hmmmmm. I know the owner of XYZ Sheet Metal. So I call him up. Bud what's up with this restuarant guy. Come to find out he stiff him 6 grand for the work he already did.
The restaurant guy called and wanted to know why I didn't keep my appointment yesterday.
I sent him a note saying that since we talked I got some big jobs and I can not take on any more work at this time.
I also sent a copy to Bud at XYZ, just to make his day.
