Outrageous late payment excuses
This only has a tangential connection with accountancy but still feels worth sharing here. Drawn from a survey conducted by FreeAgent and summarised on AccountingWeb:
Can I just buy you a pint and call it quits?
Our chief executive is still on his sailing holiday
I have been in hospital for 2 weeks to have my tonsils taken out (they hadn’t)
My cat is sick
My dog ate your invoice
Your invoice was unethical
I have no money left, but you’ll get what you’re owed if you work on my new project. And move with me to Qatar.
You didn’t chase me enough for payment
(to a professional photographer) The photograph you took is of me, so I don’t need to pay you
I referred you to a friend, so I thought that would mean you wouldn't charge me
