98% of the time, when someone walks into our office holding a check, they're a deadbeat dropping off a rent check so that we don't kick them out of their home. Today, some lady came in with at check and I immediately started asking her my standard deadbeat questions. Apparently, she was a new client dropping of a retainer check and was a wee bit offended by my assumption.
My bad. But, maybe you shouldn't just walk into an office holding a check. It kinda gives the wrong idea. That, or I completely put my foot in my mouth and have no way of digging myself out of this one. It could go either way.
There's probably a lesson to be learned from this, but I'm not really in a lesson learning mood today.
