I Decide to be Ornery

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.

I think you are very reasonably priced and affordable. Besides, you are worth it! You are responsible and we know you will always come through for us: remember when our boiler broke down during a snowstorm while we were in Florida. You saved the day and kept our pups from being isolated. Many thanks!!!
