I’m fuming. Other half did some painting for a friends mum. He would finish his job and go there and paint until 11pm. He was doing 17 hours a day! This was to make some money to pay wedding off.
He started painting on the 14th June until 20th June, he even missed fathers day!
the women hasn’t paid yet! We’ve texted her asking for payment before sat as the suits are due to be paid. shes texted back saying she’s paying all work men together and the workmen haven’t finished yet so Adam won’t be paid until they have finished!!!! Even though he has nothing to Do with these work men!!
i need the money by sat! Wwyd?

Go round there? If she’s not being helpful through the phone, why not pay her a visit (just him mind) and explain in person that the work is done, you need payment. Be firm. Remember that she has no really valid reason not to pay.

I would wait unless it is a friend I dont care about my relationship with. It sucks but did he set up a payment timeframe with her? In the future, I would NEVER do any business with her again. Stories like these are why I dont do business with friends. I have no patience for this stuff.

She lives at the yard where my daughters pony is. She’s never there because she’s out working, and I don’t fancy asking my friend.
she texted saying she will be able to tell us soon when he will be paid, in the meantime send her his bank details.
we have 14 days until our wedding!!
her daughter dropped off his tools yday, but no money!

If it was me I (him) would call we and just lay it out. Tell her your wedding is in so many days, he didn’t realize he’d have to wait until all the work was done in order to get paid and he was counting on the money for wedding stuff, would there be any way she could pay him before the other guys seeing as though he doesn’t have anything to do with them and his part is done.
Thats all the advice I have, unfortunately you can’t MAKE her pay before she wants to, but maybe if she realizes that she’s putting him in a bad spot and he was doing her a favor by working so hard, she might cough up.

Sorry, this sucks :(. But I don’t think there is much more you can do other than continuing to bug her every few days until she pays. Good luck!

Without a proper agreement about terms (which is actually all the more important to have when working for friends) I agree that there’s not much more you can do than keep pushing for payment. Hopefully it’ll be easier to pay up than keep being asked for the money you are owed!
Also, and please don’t take this the wrong way, but I’ve noticed that you share an awful lot of personal information in your posts including your real name and that of your daughter and OH. You might consider being a little more guarded because it makes you very easy to find in real life.
