A pet peeve of mine is a client paying me upon service. With as much as I get in and out of my pocket with keys, knife, etc, their payment bound to come flying out with it. It was windy yesterday and the only client that doesn't mail in their payment brought me a check out. I know I folded it and put it in my pocket. When I got home, guess what?...no check in my pocket. How do you handle these situations? 1. Have client re-issue a check and have them worry about the stop payment. 2. You pay for a stop payment and have them re-issue a check. 3. Forget about it, it was only $120.
