So if its going to cause damage why not go all in with some M16 Bouncing Betty? Although this clip is unbelievably unrealistic it is cool to watch the scene.

I dont know, from all the bad stuff you post about customers, the area and now crappy neighbors..are you sure you dont want to move? its a freaking nightmare to be in battle with neighbors...i have witnessed this with other people, 90% of the time it doesnt end till someone moves out..or gets locked up and even then that many times escalates it to the next level..

We had a shooting here on our side of town where the owner of a property had some nut renting a room next door to his and this nut just kept it up until they had a shootout.... The property owner had put up a video camera and had it all on film..... The nut pulled a gun first but the property owner shot him full of holes.....

The nut ended up healing up , but then went to jail....


TANGO....with this being rental property next door have you raised hell with the landlord about any of this???

I would put up the concrete barriors like you see along the interstates... that would certainly stop them .......

It's a rental, an old house, there's 3 apartments in the house. Only this nut creates trouble. The landlord is just as bad, he doesn't fix anything and the last tenant which were welfare but were great neighbors, we watched each other's place. He had to move out because the basement flooded every spring and lots of mold on the first floor too because the old walls aren't insulated.

I caught the landlord several times coming with his trailer backing up purposefully smashing my mini fence. I literally put my head through the open window of his car and told him to stop and next time the cops would be involved. That was the end of it.

I don't want to move because I'm close to the supply stores, there aren't many houses with a garage. Plus the other houses in good neighborhoods are 3 times the cost of mine but they have about 3 feet between houses, if you are lucky 10 feet and nowhere to put the snow in winter. I would need to work full time plus a tenant just to pay the mortgage.

The house in the back of me the people just moved in and hopefully they will complain about the constant radio in the summer.

I say you should get some cheap fence panels, the prefab ones from home depot. Put those up with 4x4 posts. Should only cost a couple hundred. Then pound in short lengths of rebar like every foot right next to your side of the fence. Leave them sticking up like 4 inches. If he drives into it it will puncture his tires


Or, do something expensive, like a good bit over your insurance deductible. Make sure you have cameras set up. When he damages it file a claim. Then your insurance companies lawyers will go after him and the landlord probably too lolz Let them fight the battle for you.

I try to stay away from him because I could do something stupid. It takes only one charge for me to lose my contracting license. It clearly states in order to keep it, you can't have a criminal record. Let the police do their job even if they are lazy and liars sometimes.

Even though it was my official full year on my own I did many many service jobs. I'm getting a lot LESS jobs from wranglers because they think the rate is high so that weeds them out.

Maybe getting bad customers is from a percentage to the proportion of jobs? I did nearly 200 service jobs in 2018. How many jobs did you? Do you do a lot of service calls or more bigger paying jobs like renos?

Maybe I'll get even less weirdos this year as the rate went up, I screen more people too with the knowledge I gain.

That's less than 1 service call a day. I sure hope you had a good hand full of remodels or other jobs to make you stay busy enough to make a living.

well now im a bad example because im at my end of the road sorta speaking, but when i was in full swing, i did more big stuff with a bunch of contractors and home owners and maybe 10% service work..you need to build up a good relationship with good quality contractors if that is possible...when i first started out nothing was turned down for work if i could make a decent profit, as the years go and a customer base grows you can start to cherry pick, but in the beginning i was 24/7/365 days a year, i would say being flexible with hours and days brought in lots of good work...i would goto work 3am at restaurants so they wouldnt have to close to get plumbing work done and they loved that, so i could charge more and they paid no problem..
i turned down more work from sketchy people that the hairs on the back of my neck would go up than i would do from quality customers..as time went on quality customer base grew ( mostly from referrals)and scammers got less and less...whatever you do, SAVE FOR RAINY DAYS...be able to pay 6 months expenses with no income and you will last..that doesnt mean you will pay that all out, but it is a nice security blanket to have...because desperate people do desperate stuff, like take work from people that are out to screw you from the beginning...
it isnt easy, but more than doable, if you read articles on building wealth the #1 item common to all articles is the discipline not to spend $$$ on impulse, you need to be able to NOT " buy it now"... and wait till you have the $$..
now thats not for tools that will make you money, before i was licensed and i worked for guys, i built up all the tools i would need and bought a new work van..i put off spending on any fun stuff as you would say...such as going out regularly for drinks with friends, travel, buying electronics for the house and stuff like that, yeah you miss out on some fun and laughs, but you have to stay focused on the prize and rewards down the line..
as they say, to build a nice house you need a solid foundation for it to last....
and sometimes in the beginning you question yourself what the hell did i get myself into....im sure there are more failures than success stories, but with your own business its up to you to make it what you want, and again in the beginning there is a good amount of sacrifice..
now if 10 years later you still have the same problems and no money , it may be time to re evaluate your business plan..
