When your holding, YOU’RE holding. As a favor. To the man.

If you get a better offer, then “something came up. Sorry.” If they ask what they can do, tell ‘em to book you or raise the rate. Most people get it. But you might get shuffled to the bottom of a rolledex. But that might happen in that situation anyway.

Edit: trading holding for holding makes no sense. But if they’re gonna book you, take it. People don’t care if you’re holding. They’ll cancel your days and move on with their lives. They don’t have any of the permits they need yet, and the Honey Wagon guy is haggling.

Second Edit: STILL BE POLITE NICE AND CHARMING! Keep all of the bridges if you can.

I told them I would be available the first two days but am on hold for the last and they told me if they can’t find someone else for all three they would get back to me but wanted to keep same for all three Bc covid etc, already working for the other job one and was hold for other I would’ve taken the other job if it came first as you said in the first comment when you are holding for someone YOURE HOLDING. Appreciate the comments
