@cora_123:  they possibly lost out on a commission somewhere

when it comes to money, everyone is really weird about it

cancelling a service with any contractor means less money for them and its not you they’re mad it, its probably that they’re thinking of their own lives and how much needs to be paid/met this month, performance goals, or actual monetary value that needs to come in, that they’re taking it out on you.

@cora_123:  That was very unprofessional of them.  But try not to let it bother you, you haven’t done anything wrong.  Since it involves their losing business and money it stands to reason they don’t want to lose customers.  Pretty dumb of them not to realize they alienated you from ever coming back to them for future business, though.  And telling your friends and family what jerks they are.  If it makes you feel better you could email and let your feelings be known.  Or just realize you made the right decision to not deal with people who transact business like that.

@cora_123:  it is only business.  people in these types of industries should be used to rejection by now; if not, they are in the wrong line of work.

keep in mind, it is all in the delivery of this bad news.  if you are flat out blunt, yeah, i can see some hostility.   i have a knack for letting people down easy.  the disappointment has less of an impact this way and they still feel good.   i have never had someone upset at me directly for not using their services anymore.
