Re: Dealing with Difficult Builder
Im not a musical instrument builder, but I build scientific instruments. I was supposed to finish a repair today, but yesterday i realized I don't have a key part that I didn't expect to require for this job. (I have one, but it is the wrong size.) I fully expect an unhappy customer when I call him tomorrow, as I am holding up a research project and somebody has a lot of money at stake here.
I will apologize and explain what I am doing to fix the problem, and hope I don't lose the customer. But things happen. This was fully unexpected.
Ha, ha! keep time: how sour sweet music is,
When time is broke and no proportion kept!
