This is a bit off-topic, but I'm wondering if there are other people here in professions who are "people persons" (which I am definitely not). It's about how to shake bad clients - clients who are always objecting to invoices that they already agreed upon, who disparage you or your staff, who don't do their part (with regard to supplying documents or information or whatever) and who generally make your life miserable.

What is the best way of parting from them without pissing them off too much? Or incurring other obligations?

If you're afraid to dismiss them outright then you can simply ratchet up the pricing - DRAMATICALLY. Blame it on high gas prices, material costs, etc. That always works for me.

In our business (fiber processing) we just tell them we are over a year out, but we can recommend another mill which has a shorter turn around.

There are always two extremes....the truth lies in the middle.
