Ok, I got one for you bird stuffers.

I dropped off a pair of birds to a guy to get done. After 2 yrs, he said they were lost. Then after another year, they magically were found. Then a year later, he called and said they were done. 4 years after I had dropped them off and he wanted me to run down at that moment he called and pick them up and pay for them.

Now my question, Am I in the wrong for not running right down and picking them up? I think I should wait a year to pick them up just to prove a point. Just curious about what you guys would do????

I would offer a 2 for 1 payment for all your trouble.
He should have offered it to you already.

Tough question.

I would ask is he a full-time or part-time taxidermist. Also, 2 years is a very very long time to wait for any birds and to have him call you and say they were lost??? Myself, gut check time. Are these common birds or were these birds hard to get (do these birds mean something to you)?

Personally...I wouldn't entertain this topic myself and I don't know if I would be taking him any more work in the near future. One thing is for sure, you could go down and look at them and if you like, decide to either pay for them or walk, your choice.

I'm part-time and I can't seem to keep up with all the work I've got. Being a Husband, Dad, Employee, and other stuff keeps me real busy. Customers should be #1 in my book and keeping a good time-line is important to me. When I get behind or tell a customer 6-9 months, etc, and it takes a year bothers me alot. It's a business, you should try and run it like a business, plus try to keep your word.

I'm would be a little cautious on this one myself.

Let us know what you decide to do.
