A person comes into the store and wants me to come over and look a a piece he bought years ago at the gallery I use to work for. I remembered the customer and knew he spent lots on art and framing so I went. The problem was he had moved the piece to where it got very hot from the sun and the shadowboxing was coming lose a bit. This was a 48inch square piece with plexi front and back and very difficult to work on. I remember warning the gallery owner that the design could have problems if it got hot. I sure the customer was never told. Anyways on to the problem. The customer paid about 25 grand for the framed art in 1992 from a gallery that I was an employee at. He thinks I should fix it for FREE because I did the original work. I told him it would be $500.00 to pick up fix and rehang. He acts like I made the 25g's on the piece. This person knew I was in my own shop for 4 years and has never done anything with me, he mostly buys framed art. I see no reason to waste my time appeasing him.
