These self-centered "me" generation people are really something!
I did some free remodeling work for a young friend about 10 months ago.
Prior to doing this work, my friend assured me he would reimburse me for all
the materials I needed buy to do the work...
When I was done with the work, I gave him a copy of all the receipts for
things I had purchased as well as an itemized list and total amount he owed
me. Again my labor was free.
So the months rolled by and not a single dime came my way. But in the mean
time, my friend purchased all sorts of expensive "toys" for himself (he
makes very good money). Like fancy wheels/tires for his car (the old tires
were fine), a new very expensive entertainment system for his house, and on
I kept reminding him of the money owed to me...
Well after 10 months of this, he finally mentioned something about paying
me. He said he would total up the receipts I gave him. I again gave him a
copy if the itemized list I have given him 10 months prior.
After a couple of weeks, he called me and said "You can come and get the
money I owe you!"
I think I will try this with my electric bill. I'll call the electric
company and tell them I have the money for their bill and they can come and
pick it up!
Geeze these people are really something!
