I fired a client over $15.00. This is true. I had gotten a call one day last month with a sad story about needing an inspection completed. They really needed this one done. I told them I could possibly get it done for them but I wanted a "little" more. With the price of gas and my time going up, I needed a little more for my efforts. I was feeling pretty good that I had gotten a better price for the inspection "albeit only $15.00" but better than nothing.
I did the inspection and then it was kicked back saying that I needed a lot more information. After spending about two hours on their web site and then sending it in for the second time. It was accepted.
Then Today I received the check. You got it. It was for the original amount they had first called offering.
I e-mailed, then called them and they said they "don't recall" offering me more. I told them "you didn't, I wanted more. And your company approved it. They told me "it's the national average", and it's all I would get.
So I told them I was firing them as a client for breach of a verbal contract. Then I told them to send an inspector from California for what they are paying me.
I won't be doing any more inspections for this company. They were fired.
