I met with a potential client yesterday. I was number six on her list of ten or so interviewees being seen during the week. After talking about caring for her pet, and learning the routine, she told me I was really nice, but another pet sitter was cheaper. I think from now on, I'll start being ornery, but cheap. She did tell me later, the other sitter was overweight, and feared the woman might fall on the icy sidewalks and sue. The sitter also expressed an unwillingness to visit during a storm. Ah! What to do? What to do? She IS cheaper than me! I must work on being ornery.
