Has anyone ever had someone else take credit for a project that you did for them? Here is my story, about six months ago I was approached by an acquaintance and asked if I would make a small computer cabinet for his wife as a Christmas present . I did the design work, built it and even carved in some flowers as nice accents. I was paid $400 which I thought was low but hey it was Christmas and besides I enjoyed doing it. I was proud of my work. Fast forward to this past weekend. I was attending an anniversary party at the acquaintances' house when a mutual friend suggested that I should get "Joe" to show me the cabinet that he made for his wife thinking I would appreciate the work of a "fellow" woodworker. We all went into the den and lo and behold there is the cabinet I made. Well his wife started bragging about how much work her dear old hubby had put into it and how proud she was of him. I didn't know what to do, I wanted to explode. That bastard is ripping me off. Upon closer inspection I noticed he had removed my signature from the back, I had burned it in and his was in its place. I wanted to confront him at the party but not wanting to make a scene I left with no satisfaction. I have tried calling him and have even gone back over there to confront him but he won't face me. I don't know what to do, this bastard is taking credit for my hard work. Does anyone have any suggestions? I can't stop thinking about it. I want to expose this jerk for the phoney that he is.
No announcement yet.
