I agree with Travis. working people are the best for me, I have the most trouble with Old people and rich people. Old people I can understand if they are on a fixed income but i meet some rich people who are the biggest penny pinchers you have ever seen. I have this one couple living in a 500K house both driving Mercedes benz and they ask me "does this estimate include sales tax?" and "can you mow every other week." Who are they fooling? They also have a sprinkler system they never use. God forbid the water bill go up 20 bucks.
USED TO BE IT WAS PREACHERS, PLUMBERS AND POLITICIANS WERE THE BAD PAYERS.....IN OUR INDUSTRY, THOSE WHO PAY THE BEST ARE THE ONES YOU GET THE INVOICES TO IN A TIMELY AND ROUTINE MANNER, CALL THEM WHEN THEY ARE LATE AND DON'T GIVE THEM ANY FREEBIES.....CUT THEM OFF IF THEY ARE NOT PAYING IN AGREEMENT WITH YOUR ESTABLISHED SCHEDULES.
