    ANd they really wonder why there is so much opposition to 'replacing' the SBT revenue that will be 'lost'.

    I love my country, but can't stand my government. Bunch of crooks.

    Good point, but then again if they are not paying is it really a "customer". Even if by some miracle chance there is a confidentiality statement in the contract, I would consider the contract null and void for non-payment.

    This customer is like one of those ones in the recent SNOW article. Always want you there first thing, but don't want true service. You would think an agency with that much elderly foot traffic would want salt every storm. NOPE.

    You can bet if these people that are ripping us off were there on Saturdays, they'd want it salted.

    True. They could get salt stains on the cuffs of their pants and then expense the dry cleaning.
