	To tell the truth, personally, I don't give a hoot about
 people not taking us seriously. Seriously.

	How is this an atttack? Are they being called in, or not? If
 not, I have no objections.

	When I get called in on a job, I get paid money. I do not
 think that as a very, very, very low attack on me. In fact, I like
 being called in on jobs. It helps me pay my mortgage.

	What the heck are you flaming me about?

	I have no reason to work with anybody incomeptent enough to
 think I am a kid frightened for my toy. Sheesh. 

	If they are that unproffessional, they do not get hired by
 me. Period. 

Tomislav> And people do want that, no matter what their profession is.

	They wast to keep their pride? Sure. Let 'em go ahead. Calling
 customers kids is not the way to do it, especially when all the
 customer said was to call them in on a job.

	I have no idea what this means.
