45. Tell them you got a great job offer in another town and you
Edited on Sun Nov-13-05 09:27 AM by tinfoilinfor2005
and your S.O. will be moving very soon (this will take care of ending an extended friendship). Then tell them you have a buyer for the house, but the buyer has examined the trim/molding, etc., and they would like it redone (this will take care care of your embarrassment for having to tell them that their first job was crappy). Let them finish, pay them, and bid them a fond farewell.

Yes, you will have some guilt about not being truthful with him, but then again, he's not your mother. And he's not really your problem. His intimate confessions make me wonder whether that isn't what he really is after.
