    Thats not what I meant at all. :dizzy: Customers don't care who you have to pay or what you have to pay.
    They just know what they can afford, what bills are due and what they can get away w/o paying right away.

    Its easier for him to lie than tell you he doesn't have your money or worse doesn't want to pay.

    It's been my experience that contractors can be the hardest to get money out of...I would much rather do the work for the home owner...

    I know it sucks. Been there.....most of the time they are hopefully just too embarrassed to admit that they do not have the money and not that they are out and out trying to screw you.Never work for them again unless the money is up front in advance. These people can only screw so many people before it catches up with them.

    I just got paid on a $50 push bill that was invoiced 12 December. Then the guy only sent $40 without explaining. The only reason he sent that now was because it was supposed to snow this week and he was worried his liquor store would not get plowed.....he's right it won't. When he calls in disbelief about not being plowed I plan on telling him I am sorry, I'll be right there and to please have the money including the past due amount ready for pick up prior to being plowed.
