AMEN!!!

But I will have an 09 in the driveway soon. Shhhhhh its barley gonna be lettered. Just enough to write it off.

Thank God for tthe rain, it was getting verry dry. This should keep us busy for a few more weeks before it gets dry again. Its actually been a pretty mild summer heatwise.
Hey whats the best way of trying to get an x-customer to pay. Ive got one that owes me $1710.I was mowing their personal house and servicing a bunch of rentals and investment properties they own.They sent me partial payments for a couple months and then things just went to far so I told them I would have to be paid in full before I continued service. They had me send the final bill but it has been a month and no reply.
They will pay one way or another.Even if I have to go oldschool on their a$$.

neil, number one get over your "old boss" big darn deal dont we all have one? it sounds like your day revolves around trying to "get back at him". a wise man once took his employee to a hill over looking a beautiful estate surrounded by lavish gardens, a enormous pool and amazing veiw of the lake. the wise man said " if you work your a$$ off all day every day for me some day this will all be mine".

number two, go see some one if you know what i mean, you dont have both paddles in the water.

I was angry that night.....sorry if I rubbed anyone wrong. Its not normally me.

I did work my ass off for him. That is one of the good things I learned from him, hard work takes you places.

I did work for a long time with him, maybe not constant, but it was slave driving for someone who didnt care for anything but his bottom line.

I am over it now. I have made a decision. 60-65 high end residentals and Im done, we will see what I can gross then, and see where I wanna go from there.

I know its not gonna happen over night, but for now, I dont wanna be big.
