    Is it just me or all these divorce women late with paying there bills. They want stuff done and you give them a price and then after its done they whine about price and don't want to pay it. I think they are the cheapest creatures on the planet. No wonder there all divorced. Maybe it's the high gas prices making them all nuts.

    Now that you mention it, yeah, I have run across a fair share that just cannot seem to get a payment to me on time. One of the worst customers I ever had was three divorced women living in one house. I won't get into it. Just think of your subject, a divorced woman...x 3.

    if they wanted to trade for my services then yea i am ok with that if she looks good haha. 99% of these women got the house in the settlement and who knows what else. The location i work in is upper class so houses go for big bucks. it just sucks because about 75 percent of my clients are divorce women who are always late payers and i have to call them every month. i do have a few good payers that are women i should add. my male clients are so happy they are not doing the work they are happy to pay haha. i think the next business i go into after i get sick of begging for my money will be something where they have to pay ahead.

    That's why you get all your customers on AutoPay. I almost never have customers pay us late anymore. Automatically comes out of their checking account once a month and goes straight into mine. No worries.

    That sounds great. Do you have a website link to the company that sets that up? or is it something there banks have to do.
