It feels bad enough to lose a job to the competition. It feels twice as bad to lose it to…nobody. Or rather, to Mr. Smith there, who saw your estimate and is now just sure he can handle all the electrical work himself. Although he’s a graphic designer. Who works 70-hour weeks. And has never picked up anything more brutish than a pair of tweezers in his life. Yeah, good luck with that, Mr. Smith. Instead of resenting the hapless Mr. Smith (who will doubtless soon be living an unimaginable nightmare that will be made ten times worse by the knowledge that it is all his own fault), move past the hostility and into the profitability.
