Here' the lowdown: It's the first week of spring, a new customer approaches me while I'm mowing an existing customer's home. I finish up what I'm doing, head over there and give them a bid. They accept it. Now let me explain something here, I bill on the first of the month for all cuts the prior month. That bill is due on the 15th of the month it was sent. So, I continue to cut their grass for an entire month, send out there bill, and then cut two more times until the 15th when I haven't gotten paid yet. I knock on the door, and speak to the owner. He assures me his wife will send out the bill soon. So, I cut the grass for the 7th time. Now, the following week, I call because.......I haven't been paid yet. I let them know that I am not going to be cutting anymore until I receive payment. His wife says" That's ok, we got a mower, and we're going to do it ourselves." Then she says" My husband doesn't get paid till next Friday". Well, next Friday comes, and no check. Then I call, and I'm put off till the following Friday. It goes on like this till July! Finally, I go down to the court house, and file a case in Small claims court. This costs $65.00. Money well spent to see justice. Well, the court date is in September, and to my surprise, they were both there! It took the court about two seconds to decide in my favor. Now they were court ordered to pay me what they owed, plus a couple hours of my time, plus the court costs. Great. Well, I ask the judge, how do I get paid? He says" it's up to you to collect it". Yeah, great. They again agreed to pay me. $50.00 a week this time. Well, here it is, almost November, and I haven't seen a red cent. Now, I want to kill!!! I have never let anyone walk all over me, and I don't want this A$$ to be the first. I'm trying to maintain a business sense about things, but, I have these teenager thoughts envisioning myself late at night sneaking up and slashing their tires. This is not your typical customer, this is a selfish, piece of shat customer who could care less about anyone other than himself. I had employee wages, gas, time, invoices, court costs, ect.. Now, the only way that I can legaly get my money is to have his wages or his bank account garnished. Since I never received a check, I don't know his bank. The only way I can think of figuring out where this guy works is to stalk him early in the morning or steal his trash. Neither of which I have the time to do. Maybe this winter, It could be a fun thing to do to curb the boredom. What would you folks do in this situation?
