If someone comes up to me and wants it one time I will do it. But I won't do it right then and there when they want it. THe people that pay my bills come first. If its a new customer that wants it regularly then yes I will squeeze them in that day
My policy on one time cuts is to be paid up front. I got burned one time and thats all it took to come up with a policy.
If I can cut it right away I will if not I give a time when I can but always with money in hand.
