    I've been dealing with that lately.

    I've got the payroll scedule laid out, and they still want to hassle me. Drives me nuts.

    "Can I get me check early?",

    "Can I put today's hours on this paycheck?" when the payroll ended the day before.

    "I need to take off work all day so I can get this check in the bank."

    my biggest complaint that decreases my productivity is when I spend time on this site reading the threads about people complaining about parts of there business they chose to get into.

    honestly I don't really have any complaints or do any complaining. when something or someone gets on my nerves I just remind myself I chose this profession and can leave at any time and I choose who I work for and can fire them at any time.

    so true! i got in an accident over the summer because someone was tailgating me, while towing my trailer, and i had to slam on brakes because a tire came off of a car in front of me. they hit the back of my trailer, dented their front end pretty good. they will think twice about tailgating people next time.

    that was me and I did nothing wrong. in fact my lawyer is suppose to be contacting you about the law suit I'm filing against you because you have no brake lights on the trailer.........:laugh:

    Clients who want me to mow their lawn with nothing but a 21 inch mower. I mention I am getting a bigger mower, even just a walk behind, and they say they do not want it on their lawn and they still want to be charged the same.

    traffic, people who don't contain their dogs, teens at the drive thru who NEVER get my order right, trimmer line that is supposed to be commercial, but sucks, ..cars that turn up the boom at the gas station, customers who forget to leave the check out, and say that they're sorry, but continue to forget,.. potential customers who say they want me to cut when their grandson can't do it, customers who come outside with their teeth showing, squinting and yell "come back when it's not so hot"
