Companies losing contractors

So we get a call the other day from a former client saying that they need a few inspections and grass cuts done.
I told them that we dropped our insurance and closed.
The idiot actually says "well could you activate your insurance and take care of these 4 cuts and 5 inspections, then if you want you can cancel the policy again".
Sure I will pay the $500.00 deposit for the insurance so that I can do $250.00 in work for you. Do they not understand that contractors are disgusted with most of them.

You were speaking to someone who has never actually owned or run a business.

I am still trying to figure out if they play dumb or just dumb or don't care. In general.

You have to understand that to these guys, contractors are just tools. Your company is just a means to an end, nothing more. Some will play up the "I like you and want to help your company" rhetoric but the reality is they know what allowables are available but typically have no idea how to do the work or if it even needs doing. PP is a pretty bizarre industry.
