A business reputation can take years to build. It demands nurturing, cultivation and care. One businessman showed me how all of that work can go straight down the toilet in minutes flat. It's a story of the sweet sounds of the late, great Marvin Gaye, engine trouble, a tow truck and the "nightmare" car scenario.

To Walt & Susan, Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and wishes! I do have to share the credit though with "Stan"...after all he is the one who made this story possible :)

Yoni,

Great read. I've had my share of "Stans" fix my car over the years.

Congrats on breaking the 40 "Sugars"!

Congratulations on the 40 votes Yoni and looks like another one of yours is about to hit the 40 votes also. We get a lot out of your stories.

Well deserved.

Susan

Yoni this was a great story with great lessons. It is all about false assumptions on th epart of those who assume client satisfaction.I picked up on Biz Sugar at Job Shuk where I have read quite a few of your articles. As far as todays go, how about "Sticker Shock" as an alternate title? ;) Goof luck with all of your writing. My email if you ever want to talk writing (I do editing and some creative) is bizblog007 at Yahoo. All the best,Braden
