They stiffed him $500 for a job I did an hour away because “his price wasn’t budgeted for that much”. Saddest thing is, he bit the bullet and allowed it. Screw that. He claims he’s just going to pad hours on other jobs we do to compensate, but who isnot to say they won’t do it again.
My Master doesn’t put up with that crap. They know that the site has to be empty when we arrive. If we show up and the sparky or tin knocker is there, we walk and that is an extra trip charge, hourly from the time we leave the shop until we get home or to the next job.

The company we deal with are slow payers to begin with. Just roughed in two bathrooms earlier this week. Owner of the company showed up with a check, payment in full otherwise they’d get a lien on another property and no work that day.

He’s an ******* in so many ways and loves the title!

That's assuming the high end guys have handled the exact same valves before. But, with so many out there, you can go a couple of years without handling the same one. So, each job can be a learning curve, aka a pita.
