Oh, Yes! jobs

A friend of a friend told me about "Oh, yes!" jobs. The comment is often "Oh, yes! While you're here, can you also fix...." this is very common with referral company calls. I get a call to change a lock, and they want me to oil a glide on a drawer, or some other obscure thing. Problem is, that if I am agreeable and do the job, no one gets paid for the work.

*Make up an excuse not to do the work such as your agreement with the referring company prohibits you from doing other work or your insurance doesn't cover the extras or start charging labor for the extras. If there is a conflict with the referring company, you should discuss it with them. Stop doing work for free!

We told them we'd have to schedule that for another time because we had customers waiting. Company rule, because the simplest way for service workers to screw over their company is to take on these "while you're here" jobs, and the "neighbor next door" jobs, give them a good discount for paying cash, and pocket the cash without writing up the job. You can make a nice living working half the day for the company and half the day for yourself if you aren't forced to stick to the schedule and account for your time.

*Actually I was talking to a below average reader who has difficulty figuring things out for himself. I still recall the time you deliberately punctured the can of spray paint. I would have loved to have seen that video on YouTube.

What exactly is the truth?

When I worked 'service warrenty work' for a builder ,I got that all the time. It drove ne nuts! Had a guy that the clear sillycone around his backsplash was black from neglect of nonwash. My boss gave him a tube of clear& told him he won't redo it. The guy told me my boss left the tube for me to do!! Well that sucks cause I can't caulk worth a crap + the shit he gave him was from his car & had froze the night before!! When I got done trowling it on !!! He never asked for freebys again !!

Heh. Retired, heat with wood, workign removing an old dead, ugly locust for an old lady. Had to haul my rider mower and trailer up to haul the wood out from behind her house.
"Oh good, my lawn so needs mowing...."
I was glad to do it as I don't have much doing anyhow.

Oh, No!
I came here today with the proper tools and materials to fix your refrigerator and I have other jobs to do after you...
If you would like me to come back and fix your stove, I will take down the manufacturer and model number and look into repair parts and the proper service diagrams and get back to you on how much it will cost... But to repair that for you would require you book another appointment...
