Bored rich, spoilt housewives.............the bane of my bloody life.
As long as she pays up then I suppose its worth putting up with her!

that's the problem, the last job I did for her she took 2 months to pay!


I have told her this time that the day I finish the job I want the money.........she didn't like that!

My Bank made a cock up with some direct debits, the easiest answer was to present the bills back to the customers, who then come up with any number of excuses that you can imagine.

Christ mate!


I have been known to go and take a fence down from a client who didn't pay me for 6 months.

I shouldn't have done it to be honest, very illegal, and not good for business but I just lost it.

Is there no way to take them to court?

Maybe, but I need their custom, or it all goes pear shaped

Cripes

Hope it all goes/went well!!

If all goes well with the bank perhaps come up with a 'claw back' scheme with the 7 people who have not paid and add a % of what they owe to every months bill until the debt is settled?

Back to putting up a blind....I hate manual work ;(
