Awkward situation..... need suggestions!

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

never been in that situation, but you can be pretty certain that if she hasn't paid then it probably because she can't. She doesn't want to have to dodge your bill any more than you want to chase her down for it. I would give it a week and then stop by. also when money is tight, fridays are the best day to stop by and the 15th and 30th(government and SS pay days). More likely to get something when they have it.
