This Job Was Not Right For Me
There are times when as a handyman, you are approached with a job that is simply not the right fit for your equipment or expertise. I was recently approached by a client that owns a business that is in need of having the parking lot restriped. Although I did appreciate the offer for the job, and also the confidence in me to do a great job, I did have to turn down the job. I do not have the proper equipment to do the job correctly, and I would not allow myself to do a bad job for a client. I didn’t fully turn this job down, instead, I referred it to my good friend Ronnie, who does parking lot striping in Houston, TX area.
I have known Ronnie for years and I know for sure he is an expert in his profession. Not only does he have the proper equipment, crew, and knowledge, but he also was willing to take on the job. He even agreed to allow me to assist on this specific job so I can learn the process. Having experience still does not fix the issue of me not having the proper equipment, but I will worry about that if ever approached again about a parking lot striping job.
