You are your children's teacher.

I have a relative that is in the apartment moving business. Occaisionally people try to not pay him. He has learned to have them sign a form before he does the move. What most customers don't realize is that the form allows him to withold some of their possesions until the bill is paid.

So, he always loads the television first. That way, it's the last thing left on the truck. When he informs a non paying customer that he still has their TV, they panic. They borrow money from neighbors, inlaws, wherever they have to, to secure the beloved TV.
