Decling a customer request

I just declined a lead to DJ an event for May 11, my daughter's college graduation is on same day. I wasn't able to send personable message to decline it. And I got charged on top of it! Why are we not permitted to send a personable message thanking the customer for selecting us, and explaining why we can't provide services? This way customer doesn't think we avoided them. This has to change!

Re: Decling a customer request

@DJStevie it's in an effort to save you time from needing to write a long message for each job you decline. When you decline a job we'll kindly let the customer know that you're not available. In regards getting a job on days like that one, be sure to keep up on your Pro Calendar so that we won't show you for jobs on days that you're unavailable.

Where it may make sense for some, but for someone who loves being personable with customers, this takes away from what I've done all my life.
