Thats' exactly what I do. It works. I had a PITA customer a wahile back. Anything that you know the end result of that is bad practice on plants put it in writing. When You walk up to them with a folder and show them that signed paper, and the contract and clauses, it intimidates them and they know they are in the wrong. It's funny to see thier facial reactions when they see that signed paper.
