I have had this customer since last spring and her yard was by far my most profitable. $70 for a 5o minute job. always paid me cash and never complained. Last week I did the yard and went to collect money, she came to door and said she woould have to get with husband to get money, could I wait a few days. Being I neer had no trouble with her said sure. Went back last friday and she still did not have money. Yesterday I stupidly done the yard again and I noticed she did not come out of house to pay me like she usually does. I went and knocked on door and she needed to go cash her check and wanted to know if I could come back Wensday(today) I went back today and she still did not have the money and wanted to know if I could come back tommorw and apologized for putting me off. I told her that I did not time to keep coming by (nicely of course) and if she was having financial problems to let me know and I would work with her. She got real invasive and went back in house and I told her as she walked in the door I would be back tommorow to get paid, Yeah right. No I do not have a contract they do not go over in my area at all, very few lco have any at all. I guess I will have to eat this one. Dam thats 2 ztr payments too! What makes a good customer go bad? Customer #2 I done a $60 job for the most prominent lawyer in my area 4 months ago and have sent 4 bills even tacked on late chargesm no response or return call. This man drives a car that is 3 years of my salary and cant pay me $60?GRRRRR really ticks me off!
