What does "can do" mean?

A term used by contractors, fabricators or other people in any service industry which translates into: "We CAN'T do it -or- It won't be what we promised -or- We'll never get it done on time (if at all) -or- Once your deposit check clears, you won't see us again until you take us to small claims court".
This term is usually said quickly and excitedly 'WeCanDoIt!!!' ; and used throughout the United States, but is very prevalent in the Southern California region.
