I've had some big balances hanging out there before, this season so far seems to be the worst for some reason. But in due time it will pay, but my patience is wearing thin this time around. I've already started dropping the hammer on the customers who owe me.

What sucks is that I hate having debt to my suppliers. I pay for all our materials up front when we get them. Normally turn around on pay is 15-30 days and it's not a huge issues. This time though, there are some invoices pushing up to 40 days or more. Deposits will be required from here on out.

My rant. I'm fixing to go to the body shop to drop off my brand new truck because someone ran into the back of it yesterday.

I never can find anything to rant about work for myself, outside all the time, love what I do even when things break and screw up just fix it and do work.
