I’m feeling much better since this morning. I drove a loop (not the “loop”) around town, and ended up at home in time to visit with the city wastewater service men. Apparently, my sewer connection is not damaged “enough” to warrant intervention by the city, so I’ll be purchasing a new sewer connection to repair the joints for south of $3000. Perhaps I can cancel my March trip. Oh yeah: I’m still feeling better with a $3000 future cost versus a bad client. Good riddance.
After a dentist appointment, lunch, and a call to my lawyer to get a client termination form letter (funny what those guys have on hand, huh?), I buried myself in “complex” design calculations. Now that I’m at the end of the day (not night; going back later), I feel really good about ditching the client. I called another client for some data for my calc’s, got what I needed without an inquisition, and went back to work feeling even better. By morning, I expect to have put it all behind me except mailing the formal termination letter.
