This year I took on a property I had maintained for 3 years. It changed hands this year from a real estate company to a guy wanting to turn the dilapidated building into a resteraunt. To the say least, he didn't have a lot business sense. Anyways, I had lot's of trouble with late payments, it was always try me next week... I always got payed so I continued... Anyways, I could tell he was having financial trouble. One night when driving past I notice that his sign out front said "FOR SALE". Thats was about 2 months ago and the lettering quickly came down. However, he stopped showing up and I never saw anyone there. I had reason to believe he'd got financial trouble and fled town and still owed me for the last cut....... so I stopped cutting. My father's a police officer in our fairly small town and I told him to be on the lookout for this customer so I could findout if he still needed my services or had left... Well today my dad finally saw the door blocked open there and my dad found him inside with the lawn chopped (it had grown to over a foot tall). Good news was I got my last money for my last cut (although incomparable to some of what my commercial accounts owe me). However he told my dad that he'd been there all along, and wanted to know where we had been. He said, "I can't trust anyone in this town anymore." Anyways, I feel bad if he's telling the truth. I think I did the right thing for me, especially since he's a shady character... We never saw him for the last two months... Anyways, I'm glad to be rid of the account, he didnt' fire me, but I don't want to deal with him anymore... Thoughts?
