4 weeks behind on a delivering a boat for a first time customer and feeling guilty about it I thought I'd forego the vinyl decal, do something nice for the fellow, and splurge for handpainted lettering on the transom. On the morning of delivery I passed him on his bike which I thought was kinda good because he would see the boat on the trailer and get a sense of her out of the shop and a bit of distance.
5 minutes after I pulled into the delivery lot I watched him arrive, red faced and out of breath. He was obviously not happy. And for good reason. We'd painted Debbie Do on the transom. His wife's name was Betty. Ooops. The kicker is that he'd approved the artwork for the decal which did say Betty Do. If only I'd stuck with vinyl. Harrumph.
I'm guessing there might be a few others of you with similar stories.
Anybody care to share?
