You built a rock wall for me at a fair negotiated price. This was great, except you used way too much sand in the cement. My guess is you wanted to save a few bucks. Thanks! Because just a couple months after you finished, the wall started falling apart. When I asked you to look at it, you said that was the price for that type of wall, and that if I wanted a strong wall it would’ve cost more. You know, I was warned not to hire you, but I didn’t listen.
