What my back charges <added> up too this year

SO you know the B/S back charges.. and the money you billed for that should be yours? I added up all the money they tried to keep from me and after adding up all the c/bs back charges etc. i came up to a total of nearly 24k.
most were BS c/bs that you had to fight to get the money back cause the lazy updaters... a couple were our fault due to installing smokes or a co2 in a home that shouldn't have got one but oh well. but 24k is alot of money the beast tried to keep.
I got 80% back the other i just gave up i wasted more time on the phone, and emails trying to get it back..
if you are a new comer this is your future! they act like your best friend but they will lure you in so far and trap you! just careful.

If you are a regular contractor you can easily spend that amount on advertising and chasing prospects.

if only

If i only were smart enough to have left when i wanted too.. even 1/4 of that money could be used for a good SEO to promote my business on google etc. 24k is alot of money that they tried to steal..

I just hope new vendors see this and keep track of there C/B's cause they are sneaky... im just happy that chapter of my life is gone and i dont have to deal with them..

5 children has been trying to call and e-mail me for 2 days. They are desperate! Guess they don't remember they charged me back $165 for not reporting a 2"x4" burned spot in a hardwood floor on a teardown house 2 years ago and i told them to piss up a rope as i already quit and they had already paid me. Or maybe they do remember??

We put a new kitchen, a new roof, and flooring in one a few years ago then we tore it down.

Yep, there isn't one regional or national that doesn't read this board or isn't a member here.

Mtmtnman and I are friends. He's kind of ornry so any time I can make a joke to get him to crack a smile, I try

But, were you able to do it through a back charge on someone poor unfortunate "contractor"??

Some days I feel bad , well maybe just for only a minute. I know there are preservation contractors getting back charged to pay for the rebuilds we do. Although, I can't say we've rebuilt anything only to tear it down....yet
