  In personal service business, both the provider and receiver has the
choice of selection or rejection. A case in point is that sometimes patients
want to interview their physician before signing up. I know of physicians
who if interviewed, will be very cordial and nice to the prospective patient
and after the interview when the patient is ready to hire the physician,
there are physicians who routinely will tell the prospect that the physician
also has the choice of accepting or not accepting a patient and routinely do
decide not to decline to accept the patient.

  My 2 cents worth. Your mileage and direction may vary.
