    I must be outta my head.

    I went and picked up a tree (about 7' tall)

    Dug out the old dead tree hauled it off (again about 7' tall)

    dug another hole about 4' from where the orignial tree was, planted this tree.

    cut the lawn, put out some grass seed, at 25.00 to my account.

    and charged 150.00

    Now they want some of there money back.

    I have a little over 10 hes invested in this project.

    F$%^ them, I'm giving it all back and saying Kiss my ass.

    Doing work for family and friends can ruin a realationship. Never do it.

    I agree. If you do anything for family especially, don't think of doing is as part of your business. I help out close friends and family sometimes, but there is never any charge involved. They buy whatever they need, and I'll help out if I have time to get the job done.
