Previous back story:
For those who don’t want to read: I told this guy i didnt want to be friends with him anymore and for him to leave me alone due to his unending negativity. When we were friends, he helped design my save the date cards. He had started designing invitations and menus but I didn’t use them at all, I went with something on zazzle. He didn’t print them, just used photoshop on an image an engagement shoot with some fancy font to make the save the date that is all.
After months of not talking and telling him to leave me alone he has sent me an invoice in asking for payment of services rendered (save the date cards) of $800
He did NOT print them for me, he only designed them, and only used photoshop and a picture of our engagement with some fancy font, nothing that I could not have personally gone on etsy to find and buy myself
We have NO contract, verbal/written or otherwise saying that I would ever pay him but now since the friendship has ended he has decided to ask for money saying I used him for the save the date cards. My husband tutored him for several hours straight going on several hours we did not charge him for, we paid for meals for him we didn’t charge him for, I bought him drinks that I never asked for money back, I helped him with when he got locked out of his car twice and I didn’t ask for money then
I feel like he just wants to make me miserable and threatening to sue me for money for these supposed services however once I itemized my own list of things we could have collected from him, it equals to well over a thousand dollars and it COST ME more in the end than it ever did for his save the date cards
also to mention, he did design invitations, but we didn’t use them and went with something else, we didn’t use anything other than a save the date JPEG file made by him and he did not pay for printing or anything just photoshopped it and gave it to me in a file.
I don’t want to pay ANYTHING, i AM OUTRAGED that he is itemizing this and asking me for payment when I didn’t ask for payment for all the times I cooked for him in my home, my husband tutored him, spent hours helping him pick out clothing, buying him coffee drinks, or meals this is ridiculous! What should I do?
