to put it simply: we need to hire jeepneys for our activities next week. i contacted two groups to help me out. one of them gave me a price of php5k and we pay for the gasoline. the other gave a quoted a price of php10k. it was obvious that the first one could give better savings.
the only problem is:
they asked the same person.
panic button on... adrenaline pumping, red light flashing, siren blaring: damage control.
so i called up the person that both groups contacted and explained the whole thing. at the end, it turned out satisfactorily. but i still have to talk to the person who sent me the text last night. he sounded not so happy about the whole thing.
i hope i can inject a little humor to the whole thing. it was an honest mistake anyway.
funny how stuff turn out in community work.
