Omg, that´s "stupid" of them, sure they have to pay eventually...I simply couldn´t tolerate this if happening on a regular basis..It´s hard to say anything but iv my week broken down into the 5 days from the start so no misunderstandings...sometimes I hav my money calculated on a piece paper, if I owe them money theyv overpaid or it was a bank hol as I don´t charge them...are you charging for extra hours, you invoice them for extra hours over the weekly rate n let them pay next week, messy I know... I know a cmer who gets paid in advance wages plus extra, then she refunds at end of week...

Just reread your post, it´s early lol, I´d afraid if my family, theyd be getting notice, I can´t imagine chasing wages, life´s too short,... I thought it was more an issue of them not being good at simple maths...The only issue iv ever had is a lady who chanced late collections so one 4.10pm I´d my car loaded, gate closed n waiting on road, quickest hand over ever, I was v cross saying iv a life etc n sped of down the road, I was really ticked as I knew this mum home at 3pm so why she not collect on time n it never happened again...Hav it out with them ASAP and let them pull up their socks, you could say youv to bank your money weekly from now on, although I wouldn´t bother excusing why you need your money on a Friday eve...
