I have a commercial account that was my very first yard 10 years ago, consist of 3 properties. It is about 40% of my total income. They have stuck with me threw it all. This past year I started having problems with them being slow payers. Instead of being paid in a week was taking 3 months but I kept them because I always got it at some point. They got a new manager about two weeks ago and he requested a meeting with me today. He told me the last manager had left them deep in debt and they could no longer pay me but he was going to catch up every penny that he owed me, was well pleased with my work. Said he was going to try to start having some employs doing it I asked him did he have any idea how much he was going to have to spend on equipment and he had no idea. I offered to break down the cost of each yard for him and how much equipment he will have to buy and drop it back off which was ok. I am hoping this might change his mind. When I finished it tonight it was about 55% of what they are paying me so I'll see. I did not get upset one bit, I have had so much bad luck that I am used to it I then left and went to my next account that is a 7 year one. The lady was actually sitting on the porch crying when I pulled up because she could not pay her bills and her van blew an engine so another one bit the dust. I then left that one and about a mile away my left trailor tire blew out, shredded and tore the fender well and lights off the trailor. Of course I had no spare, knew I was pushing my luck and it would bite me one day. I limped home a 5mph on the rim. Now about this time I am getting in a real foul mood so I said the h*ll with it, was calling it a day and will fix the tire tommorow. What gets me though is I have always belived that if you do good work, are dependable and nice to folks the work will come to you. I wish I had a nickle for every person who has told me "Danny, you have the shi**iest luck of any person I know". You know, it is really really starting to get old too.
