Yeah..GOD DAMN Harley riders...I spent 2 weeks doing this damn bear on the front of a HD cruiser..the owner wanted this changed, and that changed...I took it to him yesterday for him to OK it before I drove it over to lawrence for install.he said 'looks great....that will work'. I get to Lawrence, the bike shop said 'he just got off the phone with us..told us to sand it off when it got here'. What a DICKLESS WONDER...reminded me of some other people I know how they dont have the balls to tell you the truth to your face. Oh well, Ill keep on spraying, and they'll keep on being dicks.
Nah...the shop owner that I subcontract for told me that he couldn't pay me, because he wasn't getting paid for it. usually I dont have much contact with the customers. Usullay the shop gets the order, works out the details with the customer, bids it, then hopes that I am going to do it for under that bid (I usually am around 20% under without even asking them what they quoted the customer). Then they give me the peices, and explain what the customer wanted. It just so happened this time it didnt' come out right after the translation from the customer, through the shop, to me. So I had to talk to the customer to find out what he really wanted (I dont think he KNEW what he wanted in hindsight). The shop owner told me that if I wanted paid, I'd have to talk to the customer (which means that the shop is giving up on him..cause if I tell him what I was going to charge to do it..he'll be pissed at the shop for the markup). I told the shop that the guy lied to my face about the thing being 'ok', so I didnt' figure he would have the balls to stand behind any payment anyways. I wrote it off in the end..had a beer and went on to the next bike.
