Client: I love everything you have proposed, and the price seems reasonable. Let’s move ahead as quickly as possible!
Client’s husband: We are not doing any of that. It’s too expensive and we don’t need the work done!
At this point, they started bickering between themselves.
Me: here is my card. Talk amongst yourselves and please call me if you would like to go ahead, or if you have any questions.
The husband walked me to the door:
Client’s husband: We’re not going to call. You don’t have the job.
Months later, the client called:
Client: I’m surprised! It’s been a few months since we met and I haven’t heard anything from you regarding scheduling. I actually assumed the work would be done by now.
Me: Well no. Your husband told me you were not interested.
Client: Oh, don’t listen to him. No one else does.
