Was doing an estimate yesterday, and right before I gave the quote, the lady says....."by the way...I have cancer".....I was like....a..ahhhhhh...sorry to here that... what was I suppose to say?...did she think that was going to affect the quote? ( It might affect the payment options). She was without a doubt trying to use her sickness as a leverage for getting a better price.
What has the world come to......Next I'll here..

By the way.....My farther just passed away.... (and in this tough time... were thinking of having the house washed and repainted)

Its not quite as depressing as sick or dying people, but I once had a lady try to get me to give her a discount because her daughter's wedding was coming up. First of all, she had me working even at night so I would get it done in time and she drove a Benz. Some people just don't late paying for things.
