There are no pictures today. I have had a nasty thing to deal with in the last 24 hours. I mow lawns for two of my neighbors. We agreed on a price and also the terms of payment were agreed on. Well one neighbor has had some financial difficulties and I was nice and let the agreement slide some. Well it ends up I had to get tough over getting paid and it has me so frustrated I can't function. I know I shouldn't let others work on me that way, but I was trying to be the nice guy, but "Nice Guys finish last" I know others have had trouble getting paid for their work and I am sure you feel just as badly as I do. What are you to do? Hurt someones feeling and stand up for yourself or just don't help anyone out. Hope everyone has a better day than what I have Chris

Unfortunately, sometimes the nice gals finish last. If you had an agreement, you should expect the other party to honor it if you have done your part. If they were not able to pay you for your services, they should have asked you not to perform them. Just my opinion.

I think Katie M. is right. But, I guess we live and learn! NEXT time you will know if someone tells you they can't pay for your work...then don't go or if you do, don't expect payment. It's too bad they couldn't pay SOMETHING at least.
