Use the c word to my wife, respect goes out the window.
Of course, as it should. I think you may have misunderstood the intent of my posts. I try to treat others well, but that has its limits. Your post would be an good example of an area i have no tolerance for.
My tree example, i needed them down and didn't have time to meet with 3 other contractors, then wait another 2 months to get on their schedule. In this case it was best for me to work with the current one as he already was out once and I'd have been charged for that if he finished the job or not.
Sometimes you have to pick and choose your battles in life. I choose to work with this guy to get the job done and kept it cordial and he worked with me and discounted the price of the job and did more work than we initially agreed to.
If you feel you'd have made out better in my examole with your attitude, that's your choice, your life, but id argue you would not havem. There's a difference in standing your ground or being someones door mat or looking at the big picture. Some people cause more problems for themselves by loosing control of their emotions and running off at the mouth at the wrong time. Not to say you do, but I've seen it happen pleanty of times and i had to clean up the mess in a former occupation.
