Re: They Just Don't Get It.

Sprint away from this "opportunity"
This guy obviously doesn't understand that you will be using supplies off your truck. (In addition to gas, phone minutes, insurance, WEAR & TEAR on your vehicle and tools, guys know the list.)

These are also the kind of guys who will accuse you of "milking" the job to boost your hours.

He will also expect free callbacks. (Because it didn't get done "his way" the first time.)

220...221...whatever it takes!

You could put the wife out there at 20 per hour and pay her 10 so you pocket 10!

Tell your wife you'll ask her opinion if you need help baking a pie. And you shouldn't be baking pies. She should.
