It's a proven fact.
Frank just finished up a job for a man who is a multi-millionaire. He wanted his home and his brother's home done. In addition, his wife is an interior designer and he told Frank that he'd hook him up with her and that he would be working for a very LONG time. We were thrilled.
To show his gratitude, Frank gave the guy a deal on his house. He charged him essentially $1500-$2000 less than what the job was worth. He took the man's verbal abuse, his disdain and bad behavior. The man missed every appointment that Frank made with him. The job got finished.
And we have no work.
There is no second house. There is no connection to the wife. Essentially, a gentleman's agreement was made and this man, with homes all over the world, took advantage of a common, everyday blue-collar worker and thanks to his lie, got a great deal on having his home completely pressure washed and painted.
Just another case of the rich getting richer and the poor staying poor.
