anyone ever get that, in the summertime? they allow you to cut the grass, but when it's time to pay the bill, they don't want to, cus it "didn't need " cutting. a couple weeks ago, i was at a property mowing, i get done, and the lady asked to see me. we went in the kitchen. she pulls out the bill from september, which was for 3 cuts. she says, "please explain this bill to me. i have no sprinkler system, my lawn did not need to be cut, and yet i recieved a bill????" man my heart started pounding like a drum. i asked her who she talked to when she called to request a skipped cut? she said she didn't call, but "you have eyes, don't you?? can't you see it didn't need cutting?" i personally don't apreciate being spoken to like this from a client. i said, "well, your contract expires at the end of october, if u don't want us next year, that's fine, but....i committed a weekly service to you, and you committed the fee. i provided the service, and i'd like to be paid, NOW, being that the payment is overdue." she refused, saying that i had "nerve" asking her to pay for something that she didn't need. i sat down at the table, and asked, "what's for dinner? cus i aint leaving till i get paid." she calls her son downstairs, all 122 lbs of him, and asks him what he thought on the issue. i give him a 'i'll club you like a baby seal' look, and he says, "well mom, if you didn't ask him not to come, how is he supposed to know?" then he looks at me and says, "maybe next year, we can do every other week?" i said, "nope, can't help ya, but i need to be paid please, i have alot to do today." it took about 25 minutes, and i got my dough, and......sold her a fall leaf cleanup too. anyone else ever have them not want to pay, cus "it didn't need cutting?"
