I’m not paying you cash, he tells the contractor, firmly. So the contractor collects the cash from his wife while he’s out…
Left hand didn't know what the right hand was doing?

I am dealing with a contractor who is conning us. In the very beginning he offered us a huge tax break if we paid cash. I said, “No!” Certified cheque or nothing. Later, when I wasn’t home, he and his father came here and talked her (Editor’s Note: Wife, we assume?) into paying cash. I walked in the door just after she’d paid him and he was gone before I knew what had happened.
So, he’s got 3 grand. First day, he showed 2 hours, wasted some time and left. Yesterday, he was only an hour and then took a 4 hour lunch, then left early.
Today, he worked – though he was an hour late. When he’s about to leave he said, “I’ve underpriced the foam and the flooring.” Says he needs $1,500 more in cash.
I can’t afford to eat the cash but I will to get rid of this man and his crew.
