Well back in April me and a good friend from school decided to start up a lawn business in which we would split all the money for equip. and gas down the middle. At first we payed for a $300 Echo blower, and a $70 Bolens weedeater out of our earnings. As time progressed I began to get irritated as to how much money I was wasting in my truck on gas, and that my partner didn't seem to be doing as much work as me. Also, my partner began slacking off on some jobs, (he would go and sit in the truck while I finished up weedeating, because he can't edge) So finally this past month on a sunday I told him "we have to cut tomorrow" and he said "ok". The next day he neither shows up, nor do I get a phone call. I finally hired another good friend for help on some lawns. Eventually I hear from my first partner a week later after school, and he says "Sorry I've been at football, but just give me half the money invested in the blower and weedeater and like 5 or 6 lawns (we only have 10)" Now this is basically my business in which I use MY trailer, MY truck, and I talk to every single customer (I also give all the estimates), most of which I have cut grass for for a long time, and all he has to do is show up. I also keep up with clients information and exactly when to cut on a huge calendar in my room. So basically, I don't feel it's right for him to deserve 5 lawns. I will give him his $180 he put into the blower/weedeater, but no lawns. What do you guys think of this, and how should I go about it?
