    Would it be wrong to spray Round up all over a customers yard for non payment of services?

    had a rich guy that owes a hundred + and would never pay. thought about that collection company on the net that for a fee could hound the guy w/ threats and such but just decided to let him win. all my bro's said i should do the round-up thing but i thought his yard did'nt actually do anything to me. as much as i wanted to spray "Shystyer",(spelling),on his parkway, i realized i learned something about communicating my services and now make everything i do clear to my customer exactly what the charges will be b/4 hand. Haven't had a problem since.

    I have a neurosurgeon that still owes me for snowplowing. Is the economy so bad that even they are losing money?!!!

    No, it would not be wrong at all. Matter of fact it would be so right that you should do it in the light of day when he is home and make sure people see you and your company truck there.

    Why does everyone have to blame the economy? The economy has nothing to do with him not paying. He is just like half of the other highly paid people out there. Plain and simple.
