    I've gotten 'pushy' in recently about getting a check right away, it has generally paid off.

    I've noticed that the lower the apparent income level of the custy, the more readily they pay, i.e., no need to prod them. Ironic, isn't it?

    If I can keep $3000 in my money market account for 6 days, I'll...
    If it looks like I asked a question, but put a period, it's probably a question.

    True, true, MB, I had forgotten about the lawyer who screwed me. He'll get his I trust.

    Lots of good advice. We always get paid, eventually. Its just the aggravation of small minded people on a power trip.

    We also ignore property managers who 'have many important clients seeking qualified help'. Real estate agents are low on the list as well.

    I was told a long time ago you can only get rich by not paying bills.

    It’s just stuff, hoops to jump through.

    Annoying, but unless, like Brian, you eschew working for those sort of clients, it comes with the territory.
    I?m condescending, that means I talk down to people.

    You are correct in my mind. Each time i think about moving to another location i realize that i live in a bubble of high income, disposable income type people.

    As a generality, this is so true! That and the uber wealthy, invoice in, no questions PAID.

    Brian, I am surprised your insurance company charges you to add an additional insured. Not doubting, just surprised.
