Re: “were quoted a ridiculous price and told it would take four months”.

Morel of the story, never ask someone you've shafted/pissed off for a reference.

My wife gets that regularly when working at a University. It's impressive how many crap/annoying students ask her for one - even after not being on good terms with her during their time there. On the other hand, she's become very good at writing references that don't look bad per-se, but leave out enough of the glowing positives to make the requesting companies/departments suspicious. Often this is followed by a phone call and a "What do you *really* think" query...
