There’s obviously nothing left to do but to chase some of these pesky customers away by employing some of the worst PR moves.

What tactics should you employ to get rid of paying customers? Try the following suggestions if you want to lower your workload and shrink your bank account each month.

1. Be obnoxious on social media.
