Guess who just called

The first hydroseeder called me this morning. Said they'd been so busy they weren't able to determine schedules, etc. I told him I already had the work scheduled to be done with another company. I wanted to tell him he was an a**hole for not even bothering to call and tell me he was too busy to take the job. But I didn't, because I'm a nice person. So instead I blog about it.

Don't call Maritime Hydroseed for any work. Not if you want an answer right away.

A call would have been common courtesy, and they were not too busy to do that. *shakes head* I won't ever call them.

Hmmm Mom & Dad used them a while ago and I recall it being a serious fiasco lasting an entire summer - and this was AFTER they were paid and the first lot of hydroseed was down. ACK!

Don't feel bad about not telling him he was an a-hole. You told him (basically) that you got sick of waiting for him and went to his competitor. And then you told all of us. Trust me -- that will hurt more than just his feelings. :)

My dad would say, "Vote with your feet". Crappy companies deserve lost business.

(Sorry, Liz, off topic - my Market Square Event Flier tells me that tonight's DVD Concert Series on the Boardwalk features U2's 'Rattle and Hum' - not quite live and in person, but... :)
