Whoa...

Just because one of us thinks a customer is a PITA doesn't necessarily
make it so, no offense but maybe we just don't get along as individuals.

Because we are each different, it is always and very possible that one company's
PITA is another company's goldmine, I have seen this in real life and I believe it
is true, mostly a matter of inter-personal compatibility which to me is an issue
neither the customer nor the Lco has but so much control over.

And that some customers can't seem to get along with any Lco out there,
I understand this also but I still don't think personal issues should matter
insofar as to the customer's potential, I don't feel like I am perfect either
but I do believe we should keep personality outside of business, at least
as far as listing someone on a 'bad' list goes.

So what if they gave you or me a hard time, so long they paid?
It might have sucked but we don't have to go back there,
and the customer doesn't have to call us ever again, there, problem fixed.

But non-payers, deadbeats, especially habitual ones...
I don't mean the guy who once out of a thousand times forgot to pay,
I mean those who get off and thrive on stiffing the small business owner,
listing these (and there shouldn't be that many) I would have no real problem with.

I'm probably on there. A plumber I had do a bunch of work screwed up as more stuff than he got right, damaged a tree, toilet in wrong spot in a concrete floor, took 3 months to do about 4 days worth of work, etc etc. I got my lawyer involved, offered to pay him materials, refused the labor part (which was triple what was in the estimate). He said all or nothing. Took the advice of my lawyer, told him that since our offer wasn't good enough, he wasn't getting a frickin' cent. Never heard from him again, 3 years later.

It is easy... All you do it just type in the last name and the city you live in. It will search those posted within your city...

I found 3 people, that were potential leads, who wrote bad checks to other landscapers in the area... This is a great site!

I think it's a great idea. I also think they need to dump all the bogus entries. They are way to obvious.
