As someone mentioned earlier in plain English.. a deal is a deal. Man-up and accept it.
the anger is in your words...

a bid price on a million dollar project can be rescinded with no more than a fax stating that you have made an error...period...no proof required...

so even if you took a chance and 'lowballed' the bid, you can claim 'error' and rescind your bid...it's the LAW...

the same will apply here....
so I guess a deal is a deal is not as simple as you make it, that's why we have laws and lawyers, to sort it out....
