On a serious note, they obviously didn’t want the job and was just fobbing the customer off. That seems like a complete waste to me. When trading conditions have been as tough as they have been, every salesman from every company should be making the effort to competitively sell every lead they go on. Nationals should throw away their minimum order rules and take advantage of what they have to go on.
Needless to say the price we have submitted was a lot less than they had quoted, and we like to think our product is better than their’s also.
