An offshoot of my residential cleaning service is my pet sitting business. I recently stayed in a new client's home for about 14 days to take care of his dog. When he received the bill, he responded with accusing me of damages in his home that I "supposedly" caused during my stay. His wife (whom he is currently divorcing, and not living in the home) left a voice message mentioning that I needed to apologize for the damage, and I need to rethink being in the cleaning and pet sitting business. Yesterday I received an itemized list of "additional" things that have been damaged. I guess my question is if anyone here has had this experience? If so, if you weren't carrying insurance, how was your experience in small claims court to recover your money? This has completely shocked me as I've never run into this before. Only with a little investigation on the internet did I find out that the house I stayed at is currently in foreclosure, the "accuser" is currently suing a medical company, and the wife is currently suing the condo complex she is living in.
