Today, a guy for whom I did a design job told me he would only be able to pay me in 3 weeks. I told him that it was OK, as long as I didn't have to follow him around to collect my money. "Don't worry, I know the feeling," he said, "I used to run an illegal business." FML

The mans word is his word, and he said "used" to. Two strong reasons to build a trusting partnership.

I don't know if I'd trust that "in three weeks" crap...


You should definitely try to get that money as soon as possible. Just to be safe, let your lawyer know what is happening.

Sure because that's how the legal system works

As if everybody has lawyers to help them with that crap lol?!

Nope like what people yell when they see a spider maybe? crazion can you let us know if you saw a spider?

I was just saying nope to the illegal business guy geez lol.

what did he do?

He may not have mean he sold something illegal but that the business wasn't legal. I used to work under the table. I did my work and got paid but I wasn't on the papers.

Well aren't you rather distasteful.

You know, not all comments need to be witty or have a pun. Normal comments work also. :)

Then what's your purpose of commenting

Good luck with that

Not saying he won't pay you back, but as an artist, this is why I make sure to always get the commissioner to at least pay half before I get started just in case.

I can just see the follow up fml...

I picture that episode of Stewie trying to get his money from Brian and beating him with a golf club and shooting him in the kneecaps. Best episode ever.
