because this is not the "i told you so" forum:

Step right up one and all for the next round of "COVER YOUR ASS".

Anyway. The point here is honesty. Be honest. If shit happens, shit happens. Shit happens to everyone and if someone can't comprehend then they need their fuckin' money back. This is not retail you do not have to be all smiles and obligation to the customer. Especially one who hasn't paid. You do have to be honest about it. Some commissions take longer than others. If someone is going to commission you let them fuckin' know, Okay? If you know you're going to be a slo mo then don't accept the money until later on. If you've already taken the money you need to get the hell up off your ass and find some motivation or work out a new deal. If you lose a commission because you were honest- OH WELL. You and your inner workings will be better off in the long run. Honesty is always the best policy.
