Awkward situation..... need suggestions!

3529 Views 18 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  paint_booger
Recently, I painted all the windows, doors, and garage door for my best friends mom! I gave her the estimate and she accepted all the terms. On the day that I finished the job, she owed me $2100.00 and paid me $1600.00 of it and asked if she could send me a check for the balance in 2 weeks.
The 2 week check deadline was the 7th of June, and I still have not received anything.
I did send her a friendly reminder last Wednesday just to touch base just in case she forgot. This is one of those situations we all hate because as we all know business is business, but friends and business are a whole other deal!

Any suggestions would help greatly!

Thanks!!!!! Jeff

Same as Slick and Vermont

You've done the work, you want paying.
Can't go to your local grocery store and offer to pay for half your monthly shop now and the rest "whenever i got it" can you?!!!!

"One way or another" - is good for me. :shuriken: :gunsmilie:
