a guy i know (i didn't say i like him, i said i know him) has a small landscaping company. let's call him ajax landscaping. he hires an employee. he pays said employee $7 per hour to perform grasscutting, etc. this employee is actually a certified class a auto mechanic, in between jobs, and lookin for a job , he commited himself to the season, but said he would move on afterwards. ok, one day one of the trucks has a mechanical breakdown. the owner of ajax landscaping asks employee to come with him to get an estimate on the repair. the auto repair place quotes the repair at $800. the employee tells the owner of ajax, that if he were supplied the part, he would do the repair "alot cheaper." ok, so, the employee does the repair. the owner of ajax bought the parts for less than a couple hundred bucks. the employee did the repair, and when he was done said, "i'll tell ya what, just give me $200, that will be fine." the owner of ajax refused, saying that the employee's rate of pay was $7 an hour, and that's what he would get for the repair. of course there was an argument, and the owner wouldn't budge. the employee quit. the owner maintained his position that the employee was employed by ajax landscaping, therefor must do ANYTHING that was asked of him, for his hourly rate of pay. who was right? who was wrong?
