I just wanted to vent for a second. One of my pet peeves is when someone doesnt sit down and read an email or presentation that is given to them, then starts asking questions that are IN the document! I just finished a quote for a client. It was a pretty high-detail job with six different parts quoted 3 different ways each. It took about a week to get all the bids in, for me to find cost efficiencies/negotiate, and then today present the info in an email. Not two seconds after I send the mail, I get a call from the client. "How are these going to be packed? Where are they shipping from? How long is turn time? When do we need to get you the files? What were the quanities we originally wanted? Etc" I answered each question, then would say, "Everyting you're asking is in the email." Went on for about 30 minutes. Now this wasnt a long, drug out email. Maybe 100 words, then the quote. It basically stated my reason for quoting the job the way I did, where it was being manufactured, when it would ship, how long it would need, etc. At the end she laughs and says, "Guess I should have read it all before I called you. Oh well." I also used to have a boss, back in the day, who never, ever read a single proposal on her desk. She's hold it in front of her and start asking all the questions that were already answered in the proposal. It made meetings that should have been 15 minutes into three hour affairs. Plus she would cut you off mid sentence... Anyone else find that annoying?
