There should be a place where service people like myself can post and warn other service providers of potential hazards working for Mr or Mrs sloooooow payers, no payers, dirtbag ‘beat down’ artist, ‘con artist’

The general public has bbb, Facebook, neighborhood groups, google reviews, etc. They easily and quickly post their psychotic thinking and intentional lies that harm your business and often get away with it.
i know there could be some legal issues in body slamming back these dirtbag customers, however other small service guys like myself should have the same privilege without any ramifications.

Yea, no chance of libel there...


or.... you could just be a better business man


if these types of people are pervasive in your company you need to target a better audience


... ‘Mrs Jones at 55 Juniper Park Nebraska’s said I dented the side of her trailer and won’t pay me the $99 she owes me ‘. don’t work for her! it smells like cat urine and nicotine !

Years ago a general contractor hired me to do a water damage job. Emergency mitigation, packout, replaced cracked copper pipes, dry down, the whole shabang.

The entire time he was touting his concept of a reverse Angie's List for deadbeat customers.

He wound up being that deadbeat and shafted me for the entire bill.

Can you play?

or are you one of those dipshits that buys a Paul Reed Smith guitars and can only bang out smoke on the water
1. I hate that song and I don't care what anyone thinks about me for it. I also hate "Sweet Home Alabama", Way over-played!

2. I plunk, not pick, but I'm getting better. Taking Tony Trischka lessons and finally making some progress. I've been really regimented and making myself practice 1 hour everyday. I have a banjo in my shop-office and in my home-office so there's usually one at my fingertips. Someday when I get some nerve I'll post a video.

And you did not take him to court? (Said in my best Mitch Hedberg voice.)

totally agree with you....it would be nice...but it would also probably cause you more problems than what it's worth......it seems I run across more asshole carpet cleaners than I do clients...we use this board ...( just ignore Fred )....or a few private group chats to air it all out....and tomorrows another day....but... more than likely another asshole........

Hedberg was awesome
Hey Radar: There's a bunch of new (to me) Hedberg concerts (LOL) on Youtube now. Check 'em out if you haven't already! Some are very very funny. New and old stuff and much stuff off the top of his head.

I saw Dave Atell at a comedy show last uear

he lived next to hedberg and he told the bit about how a guy wasbanging on Mitch’s wall cause he was playing his music too loud

Mitxh replies through the wall “go around, I don’t know if there’s a door on your side but my wall is just flat”

deadpan comedy at its best

Let’s see the trucks, Facebook page, Google busineand your website

maybe we can unpack what you’re doing wrong

you shouldn’t need to vent publicly about customers
I found his google reviews - Two 5 star - Two 1 star - One accidental review...

I still have my original 1960 Gibson ES-335 blonde guitar (no starburst- bought it new in 1960).

It is a sweet sounding guitar through my 1964 Fender all tube Bandmaster amp and separate Fender reverb.

That baby is worth a few thousand. Nice. (and i'm being VERY conservative when I saw a few)
Local music store offered me 15K and a place in Chicago was going to fly here and was willing to pay 21K once it met his criteria.

The frets are hardly worn, which is what impressed the local guy.

Then I decided not to sell it because I just wanted to see what it was worth.

$21k is still to low, let me find something, give me a sec
