Maybe you forgot something?

Friend of mine works for a law firm in their accounting department. Yesterday he was going through some outstanding balances they owed contractors that had worked for them. I looked at some of the figures which ranged from a “mere” $5,000 up to $75,000!
Now, this wasn’t money that they were late in paying, this was money that these people had failed to collect yet, which makes me wonder how the hell someone hasn’t gotten around to collecting $75,000! A friend of mine owed me $20 for about a month and I didn’t let him hear the end of it until he paid me back. Of course, I’m probably in different economic straights than someone doing contract work for a law firm. Crazy, just crazy.
