Meticode, not trying to bust your balls, but didn't you cheat on your wife after posting countless pics of her on ISH?

Why are you projecting your shitty career onto others? Back to scrubbing those toilets mop boy.

If he were to find your online history do you think he would regret giving you advice? (Not a dis.)

so he's like, send me the bid you plan on sending so i can review it. i send him the form which was a template i got from online, looks like most invoices you'd get. 30 mins he calls me and he's like "i'm going to be honest, this document is horrible. it screams amateur. you need x and xy, etc." basically a bunch of details stuffed in one or two pages. legal disclaimers. all types of exclusions. diagrams of the work. etc. he basically talked to me for 40 minutes straight on how to improve. halfway through i was like damn i suck.

anyways, i spent the last 6 hours starting from scrap making an excel worksheet. he sent me his bid document which was like 100x better than mines. it was in pdf format and told me to copy whatever i want. but i didn't want to copy it entirely so i just made my own. 6 hours straight, finally finished. looks decent but the bid deadline is tomorrow morning so that's all i could do for the moment. i'll make it better.

the grind never stops
Man good for you.
I knew you were having issues , but basically never honed up to it.
I am glad you got some great great advise.
Now after you get the job - you call the guy back , and either ask him out to dinner or ask him what his favorite drink is.
YOU SEND A CASE OF IT.

Itís irrelevant because people donít behave in real life like they do online. Iím sure the people I donít get alone with on here would be a joy to hang out with IRL. I just have too many hobbies to not share a mutual interest/s with someone and talk about that.
