A whole morning to explain about work at home.

Today, finally, Marco came. He was supposed to come to do some work at home before my surgery. As it is, he came just today to see what I needed. We talked and I showed over several cups of tea and coffee. He says that he will come tomorrow and will do part of the work. Seeing is believing. I had a long list of "to do things". He is charging me very little as compared to other people. But I must confess that it is due to my knowing him since he was a baby. The thing I want to do first is the plastic on the terrace. that will come along with a change of pots in my terrace wall. There are some things that he did not even listen to while I was telling him. I don´t know if he´ll charge me more to do that later on. These are Autumn jobs that I´m not able to do anymore. But several of them mean saving later on.

It's quite difficult to depend upon others to do work you're no longer able to do isn't it? Even if you've known them for a long time.

Yes. Noone knows what you want and besides, I don´t have a lot of money to do it all over.

@blitzfrick I think he comes here only when he has the time because he won´t charge me much.

He sounds pretty frustrating to try to work with.

I would make a list and then ask him to set a price for it all. That way you will not be stiffed in the end. Good luck at getting it all done.
