    I think that should be started. I met my client today at his office, he immediately hands me a check for my services. Says he's hungry & that he's buying. C'mon, let's go! "Oh, can you drive?"

    Why in the world did I say yes is beyond me at this moment.

    It started easy, I'm a big Raw Oyster fan and he kept calling me a bottom feeder. X went up. He then is excited to work with me and is ready to full charge this. I explain to him the process. He says he was happy to find me. I felt at that moment, I was on a date.

    It got better, he kept going to the bathroom. Long story short, got piss poor drunk before 3pm. Promised me the moon, then started getting super crazy belligerent. Disappears for a long while. Calls me, says he needs me to pick him up. Down the street.

    Oh, I had to pay 113.45 bill. Waitress lets me know that he's known for running out. I am irked. I go and get him. He tells he was testing me and my loyalty.

    my end result, I took him back to his office. Went to the bank, cashed the check (went directly to his bank) Took out 150.00 of the amount. Drove back to his office, he was passed out on his office couch, left the remainder of the money. Had wrote him a note that said I was severing our working relationship due to unprofessionalism.

    Went home & thought I won't do that again.

    Yeah, I think you made the right move. Sometimes the money is not worth dealing with crazy.

    U cut ties with him? Are you crazy. Thats a perfect client. Most of my clients who pay me on time and are great people are exactly like him. Call him back ask if he got your note and tell him you were testing his attitude!!!

    I think I made the right decision. I can't handle that crazy behavior.

    OP...I have to say you have some intestinal fortitude to say the least. I was rolling on the floor laughing at the story but I understand where you are coming from. So he was testing your "loyalty"? LOL
