Being unable or unwilling to do tasks I once did, I’ve turned to Craigslist. Damn frustrating.
First, the bad spelling and grammar. If the poster isn’t bright enough to post something coherent and spelled properly I am loath to hire them.
This may reflect the quality of our educational system and probably does. Still, there are spell check programs or girlfriends.
Second, the lack of follow up. “Let me get back to you with a quote”. Never hear from them.
Third, the over promise, under perform issue. Seeking a part payment (or full) for work not completed.
In the end, it is what it is, and I deal with it. Still, it pisses me off that people take such little pride in what they do. Do they ever think through why the world is so hard?
