    I guess you get enough action going on some of it takes a while to catch up with you, I got the last big one last week and in another week or so we will do the contract up for the next season. Some places you don't mind you know they will get right with you, I had one place tho chase and call the dirt bag landlord and alway get the office girl who seem a tad light between the ears they have one story after another why they can't cut a check, finally get paid I told them call only when you have cash.

    All mine paid up by the end of May except for 1 guy. He might have a hard time getting into his small personal lot next winter. :laughing:

    Can't wait to "even up" with a deadbeat landlord this winter. Not sure if I'm going to block the entrance or just all the main entry doors. Probably just the entrance.

    Is it jim from vts? He owes a lot of people yet. He worked for tovar and stiffed anyone who worked directly for him. After talking to some route managers I hope he finds it very difficult to find employment there again!!!

    I have a guy who signed on halfway through the season-paid by CC. Then signed up for mowing and hasn't paid yet.

    It shouldn't surprise someone if they have more than the actual snowfall at the end of their driveway if he doesn't get his crap together.

    Almost started the same thread when I got mine last Friday. They sure did break the bank and paid for February and March, all at once.

    No it was a former sub like myself his truck broke down I helped him do his route said he pay me we agreed on a price then took 3 months to pay always had an excuse as to why he couldn't then he would not show up during a storm he finally paid after and he is not going to be there next year I would expect that from a customer with the winter we had but no from a fellow power you help out so he can make money sorry for the penmanship posted from a dump phone

    Still waiting on two USPS accounts and one national chain. The amounts are small, but it's the principle. It seems the larger the customer, the slower they pay. I had an older couple that would send the check the next day even before the invioce was sent.

    Was suppose to be the same thing us, but in February the credit cards were pulled from the two local branches we service. At least that's the story the postmasters are giving me.

    The most demanding customer I had still owes me $700. Every month I get a partial check and a hand written note saying why he can't pay the full amount. Also says he wants us this season too.....
