It may be that the customer wants @Pete-S to consult on the project but not have the entire project because his proposal was way more expensive.
A lost bid is not a termination.
No, I am saying I would have fired the customer. I gave my bid/proposal, you went with vendor B, I'm not fixing the shit they can't do, even if I am getting paid. That's the price they pay for going with cut rate vendors.
That's basically all of IT. If I wasn't willing to fix what other people broke, there would be no business.
True. I meant more so, I wasn't going to come in and fix it based on my original proposal, even though I didn't clearly state that.
