No more Mrs. Niceguy!

I have absolutely had it.  I try to be patient, understanding, and relaxed and now I see that that gets you absolutely now where.  They have been putting stucco up on the building the Salon is in.  Now, that is great except they started in October and not only are the workers not done because they are never there, they are complete pigs.  I have left very considerate and patient messages with the landlord with very appreciative responses and it is still a disaster with garbage, bricks, shingles, boards with nails sticking out of them, no sign, no front light and just crap strewn everywhere.  Everyday I go to work and it is absolutely embarrassing.  I finally had a PMS fit and started calling everyday.  Mondays message was much kinder and gentler than Fridays message I assure you.  I called Friday and told them I had had it, and was not paying rent until their pigs came and picked up their garbage and all the crap all over the front of my business and if it wasn't done by 4:00 on Friday, I would do it over the weekend and take $30 per hour out of my rent check.  Magically they came and do you know  that the crew they brought with them had 2 months worth of scaffolding , garbage etc. picked up in 1 1/2 hours!   Amazing.  Now I don't have to do it Thank God, but I will still be taking the price of my Bistro Set that they broke and my front deck mats off, I also need to put up a new security light the light I had is just hanging off the front wall and doesn't work, and  my front sign which I wouldn't have had a problem paying for except now I do.   It is still not done, I still have no sign up and I have decided that from now on, it is all business.  If I try to please every one else and not ruffle any feathers, I am the one who ends up frustrated.  Moxie Lady move over, Bubba is coming in.
