What a pain. I know its good money but you might want to walk away. They are going to be watching you like a hawk and 2nd guessing everything you do. People are so clueless about their tile sometimes. I recently gave a quote for over $700 for tile and seal. I thought the customer was going to fall over when I geave her the estimate. I didn't get the job but I think it was a wake up call for them. There is maintenance free flooring out there.

I cleaned some T&G at the Hilton the other day that had a tile replaced at some point. The grout around the one tile was matched black to all the other grout. After I cleaned all the grout it sticks out like a sore thumb against the clean tan t&g.

Well today ended up being a day I should have just stayed in bed.

I woke up this morning to a text of my first job needing to reschedule. Ok, no big deal. I go to Vegas and get my second job done which was a $150 job. I then call my third job to let them know I am on my way and the customer said "you guys already cleaned the carpet yesterday". Well, it must have been some other "you guys" that did it.

So I ended up doing 1 job for $150 today and then to top things off On the way home I got a ticket that will cost me $120.

Oh, and no word from the tile job that was originally booked for today.

Bummer Todd.....

We all have those days though. Wait until you have a few employees and you have a day like that. At least you came close to break even for the day.

Tomorrow will be better.

Did you flirt with the cop?
Maybe you could have offered a free cleaning if he would let you go?

I can just see Todd pulling his pants leg up a little as the cop approaches... The cop stops, snarls, then pulls his sleeve up that is concealing the Semper Fi.......Just before he smacks Todd with a right to the chops for even thinking it! :eek:
