how has that worked out so far???calling the cops and reporting them not paying as theft of services is what I'm asking aboutI understand not wanting to sign because I am reluctant to sign things myself. More and more I find nongovernment entities asking for my drivers license, and entering it into their system. I have started refusing. I don't mind showing it, I just don't like my personal info in computer systems that are vulnerable to being hacked. They are usually pretty quick to try to justify their request by saying that they don't share it with anyone. Well no schitt you moron, but last I knew most hackers don't actually come out and just request it politely. I am actually surprised at how many people sign willingly, without question or without reading it. The few who do seem always to be th for an authorization and approval signature to do the work and then a final acknowledgement that it was done. Problem is, I have to enter all the labor and parts first, else it is a royal pain to go back in and change things once they have signed. How many jobs go over or below my estimated time, or require more or less materials than I expected at first glance? Just about every one. Our dispatchers do a very good job at explaining our charges ahead of time, basically the rate and T and M. Most of our customers are repeat so they know what to expect. Occasionally I'll get one that will ask total cost before I start, so I give them a verbal ballpark, and stress the ballpark. It would take me forever if I had to change every previously authorized invoice and correct it to what I actually ended up doing or using. I have been told that we do call the police and report theft of services if they do refuse to pay.
