I am a part time taxidermist. To say I have had a bad year is an understatement. First born daughter had open heart surgery, I had a serious, staph infection, my wife was hospitalized after being kicked by a horse, and I was almost killed when a horse fell on me. To say I am behind in my work is an understatement. Here in lies the problem, almost all of my customers have been very understanding. When I take on a mount I tell thenm that there is No guaranteed completion date. I also require a 50% doen paymnet. Yesterday I got a call from a customer saying he was going to pick up his and 2 other deer since they wee not completed and it had been a year. I have tanned and shaved the skins, prepped the forms, and cleaned the antlers. I feel I do not owe him any of his deposit back. For those full timers, what do you think? Your responses are greatly appreciated.
