Murder is not the right strategy

Last week, we published an article about a contractor facing murder charges after one of his disgruntled customers went missing.

We were curious how Contractor Nation dealt with such clients. Of this much we are sure: murder is not the proper way to handle this situation.

Clint Molesky had a very pragmatic approach to this topic, believing that it’s all about getting things straight up front…

Well, as a contractor you have to live up to your end of the deal. Everything should be on paper, the material that you’ll be using, what all will be done, and the length of time that in should take. Probably the best thing to do with big jobs is have two witnesses to be present and everyone signs the contract.

That’s some solid advice.

Marten made it clear that murder is not an option, and that sometimes it’s simply out of your hands, but as long as you tried your hardest, your conscience should be clean.

Not that for sure. I try to do what I can to make them happy enough so I can walk away holding my head up. Sometimes takes a bit of magic though.
