You provide a previous bid for someone and all and then they chose someone else for the job. Six months later they call you for recommendations on other work they want done that you know you won’t be part of. (plumbing, electrical, etc) How helpful are you?
I always help as I refer my subs and figure they can use the work. There is never money in it for me as it will be just an electrical or plumbing service call say $100-150 but I like to make sure my subs always have work.
Other guys say I am nuts and even my wife thinks I give away too much sometimes as honestly, these good deeds haven’t ever really paid me back in some 20 years.
Or do you do it just for Karma???
