I have also learned that there are some people that you can never please, no matter what you do for them. Those are the people I don't do business with anymore.

It was in the paper some time ago that a contractor shot and killed a perfectionist customer. So now the customer is cured instantly of

I agree. There is a reason that the words 'on' and 'off' aren't cast on 3-way and 4-way switches.
