We all know the horror stories from buyers/customers when the seller/supplier doesn't get back to them.
We all know how frustrating it can be when you've paid out your money and can't get a status update or even a simple reply .
My rant is a little different.
It goes the opposite way.
I am currently cleaning my inbox out and have to sift through countless PMs sent to me requesting price quotes for painting services. I really appreciate the fact that people would consider entrusting me with thier stuff, and I realize that it is a big decision for them. I know that quality is never cheap and many cannot afford what I charge. That's cool, I couldn't afford me either.
However, It really irritates me when I don't hear back from a potential customer. In nearly every quote, I ask them to LMK if they decide not to go with me. I feel that's a very simple courtesy.
Many times, I have more than one project on the bench at a time and attepmting to schedule things is nearly impossible when you are anticipating new projects coming in.
I know, it's fairly pointless to even bring this up, but I had to vent a little.
