I told you I don’t hold that grudge no more, RIP

I’ve been approached by an old customer, who is a major customer for Bossman and the agency they do work for. To say that if I accepted the offer “it would put his nose so far out of joint it’d be in another room” would be an understatement . However it’s weekend work and the customer wants to pay under industry standard for normal time, doing this helps no one (OK I work for less than this for some people, they’ve earned it or are passing me work). So I’ve contacted the agency and we’ll be in discussions, still his nose will be out of joint.

    I was saying to myself “go for it” until you mentioned the under industry standard pay bit.

    Oh well, sounds like you have taken the next best option.

    Naut, not just under, under the normal rate on weekends hen it should be overtime. I don’t need the work so I think I’ll leave it in the agents hands to sort out.

    Mr Stu, that’s it. What happened to you get what you pay for?

    Any chance that Bossman won’t find out?

    & “What happened to you get what you pay for?”

    God knows! It seems most people don’t care much about quality these days

    “under industry standard” is about to be come normal bangar. We just “technically” dissolved our service agreements with Heidelberg, to try and find a cheaper option (they don’t know yet). We can force lower prices. The smaller guys are just going to do less maintenance on their stuff

    Lerm, Bossman will find out, no way he can’t.

    Uamada, my normal rate is $85 an hour that is industry standard unless you get one of the agencies involved and then ouch (I think KBA @ about $150 is cheapest). My sympathies for having to deal with Heidelberg, how’s the coffee supply standing up?
