What is it with the incredible speed at which contractors can cash checks?<br />n<br />nEvery week, we drop a large bundle on our general. He takes it home at the end of the day, and by mid-next-day, it’s already cleared the account. That’s less than 24 hours!<br />n<br />nRecently, we made a second payment to another sub. Wrote him a check at morning, maybe 9AM and handed it to him. By 10:30, my bank is calling me to verify the validity of the check. Holy cats, 90 minutes? The only thing I can think of is he went down to my bank and tried to actually <strong>cash</strong> it. I didn’t think anyone does that anymore.<br />n<br />nNow if we switch the discussion on how quickly they can get their job done, well, that’s a study in opposites.
