    I went to pick up a last minute check from a customer today who still had a small balance from Nov. when I looked at the check she put an extra $100 on top of her balance as a Christmas bonus.I was very surprised to say the least,most of the time if I get something its like $25 here or there.This one customer is late a few times a year and is one of the few that I let slide because they are real nice and alway pay.So sometimes being a nice guy does payoff in the end.
