How did you ever let your billings get this high?
That was the first lesson I learned. And remember our discussion on "deliverables" submitted on fade-away paper?
ps: I am employed but the boss recently emphasized that we are "at will" employees.

There seems to be little discussion of the current global economy
And its impact on the structural engineering business…other than Bill
P.’s ongoing employment travails.
My hope is that this is because the members of this list have not
Been overly effected by things.
At any rate, I received a letter from a client that owes me $50,000.00 yesterday.
After spending the better part of the page reminding me that we are in the worst
Economy since the Great Depression, he closed with:
I am currently reviewing our outstanding accounts with you and will
follow up with a letter of status on each project. However, with the
projects that have failed, are in foreclosure or will be impossible to collect,
I am requesting that you write off and forgive the debt."
