oldest trick in the book, i can't believe at this stage of the game, a customer is trying to pull this on me. here it is: you run a strict payment policy, like i do. i get my money by the first, or the service stops immediately. well, here it is, oct. 13th, payment is 13 days late. naturally i did not service the property after the payment became late (oct. 1st). here is the call i get, "bob, hi, this is mr. jones. let me know when you are comming to cut the grass again, i'll LEAVE A CHECK FOR YOU in the mailbox." see what happened here? they like to keep you on the hook. they still owe from sept, payment is late btw, and the only way they intend on paying me, is for me to come by and do more work for them, just to get the money they owe me that is past due. not a chance in hell it's goin down like that. i'll drive by tommorow, grab my check from the mailbox, then demand payment for the cuts that were missed as a result of thier late payment, a late fee, and a surcharge for having to drive over there to get a check. new guys, don't fall for the old, "i'll pay you next time you come over to cut my grass" trick. it's older than olderthandirt.
