Hi Tyler

I'm sure Flora will agree. It was never about the money in the first place. A small contribution to this fabulous site would have been nice but we have all learned something here which is the main thing. Good energy from the start.

Thanks
Dave

Yes, I realize that, but I'm partly afraid that I have lost my credibility here. I wish there was a way to proove that I didn't just run away with the photo and not pay..

Never entered my mind Tyler. We always feel a little bad when things goes sideways. It happens to me often.

PLEASE! Have a great weekend. The weather on Vancouver Island is going to be awesome!

Cheers
Dave

I agree with Chris. Realistically by hiring out a sub the burden should be on you if the client doesn't pay. Otherwise you do lose credibility.

Just my 2 cents....

Just my thoughts. Now knowing that the client hadn't agreed to pay, it does look like you farmed out a job that you didn't want to take the time for knowing you might not be paid for it.

Flora is being nice about it If you had chosen something I had worked on, and then didn't pay I wouldn't be as happy

Nothing personal at all, just the way I think on it.

When I phoned her and talked to her, she told me she was very interested, and sounded very nice and sure to go through with it. I don't know why she isn't responding to me now.

Noelf - I had posted this BEFORE the mix-up was noted.

Duv - You're in Nanaimo too? Uh oh! Maybe you are the one taking all the restoration clients from the city! Hehe. Do you do any restoration work for clients here?

"Noelf - I had posted this BEFORE the mix-up was noted."


I understand what you posted.

The reality was, you offered a job, someone did the job, and for whatever reason you didn't pay for the job. There was never a clause in the offer stating that the person who did the restoral would be paid if your client accepted the job.

You brought up how others might view you on the forum. I stated my opinion on the matter of someone offering a job, and then not paying for the completed job. And from the other comments I would have to say I'm not the only one with these thoughts.

I'm not trying to start an argument, I was just pointing out an opinion.
