Did you know that house numbers could tell you if you are at the right house or not ??
I am not kidding, you could not make this up :)
Painter A in town was going to go to the house and give us an estimate. Without us being in town, we must call the broker we are working with/through and have them meet everyone at the house. They ( painter A & broker ) had a meeting at 10 am.
At 10:40, I receive a phone call from Painter A. I thought that I was going to be getting a quote. Nope. This is what I received:
Jeff, I missed the broker. I was late and he did not wait ( ummmm, it was 40 mins and you did have his cell number ). Then he explains what happened. I was up the street about 7 houses sitting in the driveway. The house was for sale, so I asuumed this was the house. After 40 mins, I looked at the house and house number and saw that they did not match with what number you said the house was .. so I bopped down the street and he was gone.
* shakes head *
Then painter A asks me not to be mad at the broker for leaving so an estimate could not be made. I assured Painter A that I would not hold it against the broker.
I sure hope painter B & C have better luck.
