    Is there anyone besides myself keeping their lawyer busy chasing money on the street. I'm checking THEIR (new prospects)background now, what a twist.

    The storms were , as you know relentless .I believe the 2 customers that owe money are trying to weasle out .Our service is second to none and cannot be used as an exuse.They figure it was not worth staying open during or after the storms.Thats business.Ill probably see at the most 40% of that coin , if lucky.

    Small Claims Court is a good option if you have the time to go to a couple of court dates. In Illinois we can collect up to $5K, your laws may vary. I'd shoot for every penny! You earned it.

    No lawyer is needed and it is about as simple as some of the court dramas you see on television without the intentional humiliation by the judge as seen on television. My first year a guy tried to weasel out of a $5,000 bill. The judge awarded me the vast majority of what I had billed.

    (He did have to assert his great knowledge of deicing :realmad: and said I had overapplied for conditions, but that was a matter of a few hundred dollars he deducted.) I just wonder if I was such a fool to overapply, why in the hell did DOT go out more than I did??? Duh!!! :gunsfiring:
