Customer always supplies decorative fixtures unless it's a cheap POS going in a closet. Tell them to make sure to buy bulbs too. I either send them to Blowes or a shwanky lighting store. I have also had customers supply Ikea fixtures and am surprised at how good they are.

Yuh .,, it do happend more than once before and with some resdentails top end side I can throw them some suprise and I never like to keep waiting for their decison so I just keep the ball rolling and get it done.

One inspector asked me why put in keyless socket in kitchen .,, I told him why due the customer cant make up their mind what they want it so I put in keyless socket for now until they make up their mind and he just laugh some and he pass my job on that.

yuh.,, the specail order items are worst some of the customers think they can get it overnight or next day and find a hard truth few of them do need a lead time to get it.,,

Oh well .,, not my issue with it but I just try to be flexiable some but I have to draw my line on that.

Once they do deciced what they want and they called me and I do charge extra for comming back and install it.

Not to toot my own horn here, but we've had a big spike in sales in these modern LED lights for vanity/bathroom mirror lights:
