We had a number of small jobs that needed doing - creeper trimming around the house and dead branches removed from our red maple. Devlin did some trimming of the creepers over the porch in early spring
(that part of the creeper subsequently died!). He left, promising to return the following week. He finally showed up 3 weeks ago to remove the dead branches, had his helper rig up a rope in the tree = and left! Since then it has been promise after promise - none of which has been kept. Unfortunately we paid him for the whole number of jobs - $800. He did half a day's light work. We figure that he owes us $400 and have asked for it. He has not paid it back despite a number of requests not has he shown up to finish the jobs.
