I got a fairly new customer I have done over 6k in work for over the past 5 weeks. I never had a problem and got paid instantly on the other invoices. We are doing his house in stages and stage 1 and 2 were paid (4800) no problems. I emailed them thier latest invoice Monday and got this back. Billy If your in the area this week please just drop by and pick up your check. Just hold it to the 1st of the month before you cash it) Im not to worried about waiting til the 1st of the month for it as all my clients have 30 days to pay but the fact they asked me to hold it when I don't normally kinda irritated me. My response to her was "kelly its fine just hold on to your check and mail it to me at the first of the month no worries" she shot back 30 seconds later. Well its already out by the mailbox so just come get it and hold it. Does anyone else hold checks? Im flexible with my customers and have even let some older folks break thier larger bills over 3 months or so but never had a problem. Im not a finance co but this guy is a doctor... new armada in driveway new benz in the driveway. The wife just got a new tanning bed installed in the guest house and now I gotta hold a check for 1300 bucks.
