I had a long list, at the top of which were two items: replacing the sliding closet doors in the den and fixing the fountain in the back yard. He loaned me his hand pump and I twice cleaned out the fountain for him, but he never got around to fixing it, thought I pulled the whole thing apart. The closet doors didn't seem to interest him, either. He did the chores I listed above. This was the second time we had worked together, and I had enjoyed the first time and appreciated his work. This time was like working with a different person, not really invested in his job. Considering he charged $300 for the water heater, fair enough, the little chores also cost $300, which seems steep. He told me to call him when I bought a replacement pump, and I did, but he never returned my call.
