    Would you like black and white or color? The benefits are... and the price
    difference is...

    Can you write it up both ways....

    Would you like a digital recorder or a VHS recorder? The benefits are...
    and the price difference is...

    Can you write it up both ways?

    How many cameras do you want? Can you write it up for a
    1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16...,30,31, or 32 camera system.

    Also... Can you write it all up as both a lease system or a purchase system?

    So let me get this straight. You want me to write up 256 different proposal
    for you? Then you want everything I told you about as options for the price
    on the cheapest of all the proposals?

  2. Sure I can "write it up both ways"...the first bid for each system is free, each bid thereafter is at my current rate $125.00 per many would you like? Oh...btw..."rush-jobs" are $250.00 per hour. Sign here.

    BTW..."Ala Carte Bids" will always be more if you want it priced that that OK too?

    Bob, don't take this the wrong way but....I think you may be loosing it!
    When was the last time you had a vacation? Some times you've got to
    listen....and talk less. Identify the idiot's...and walk away...I'll be in

    Don't know if the customer's "stupid" (as you state in your subject line) or
    "smart" because he's managed to delegate all the "heavy" work to you...

    Way to darned long! My last real vacation (more than four days) was about
    ten years ago. Not counting the two weeks I spent in the hospital trying to
    convince the nurses to take the damned morphine drip out of my arm after my
    motorcycle wreck three years ago.

    More and more I think about selling off my accounts and starting over in a
    different area of contracting, or even in a totally different field. I was
    actually starting to build up a decent living room computer service business
    when I let myself get drawn into becoming a communications contractor. CIS
    is my primary area of education too. Heck, I could make a living as a
    fishing guide / tournament pro in a pinch. Not a good living probably, LOL,
    but that is all a matter of perspective isn't it.

    Hang in there Bob....I'm sure more than a few of us feel the same way at
  7. Hang in there Bob....I'm sure more
    My last attempt at a vacation got spoiled. I had emergency surgery while I
    was in Brazil and when I got back I came down with the flu. So..... I'm
    heading back to Brazil this Friday (April 1st) for another 17 days.

    Life is grand! :^)

    Those are the customers you suggest they move their bed against a wall...
    That way there's only "one side" to get out of... ;-))

    I feel like I'll never go to a REAL vacation... I just can't get my mind out
    of the "job scope". Or it takes me at least four days to do so, which is
    usually almost a half of my vacation... :)
    But, it will get better.

  10. I feel like I'll never go to a REAL vacation...
    Solution: Take longer vacations.
