Way back in September…
Me: You said the cheque was in the mail three weeks in a row and I have received nothing. If I don’t receive anything in one week, I will be forced to take down your site.
Two weeks later…
Client: My site is down!
Me: I told you three times the site comes down without payment.
Client: And I told YOU three times that the cheque is in the mail!
Me: Well I still haven’t been paid despite you telling me that so many times.
Three weeks later, I received a postdated cheque.
