Trucks break. People get injured. Employees do not show up to work. It rains. The police give you a hard time for the condition of your equipment. People do not pay you for the work you have done for them. Suppliers go out of business. Customers get incredibly angry with you. Accidents occur, and mater...

11 Airbnb Bungalows To Book For A Dose Of Fresh Air & Sunshine
