So I'm working in my office with the blinds closed and I keep hearing noises outside. It's trash day today, and it's really windy, so I thought it was my recycling box and trash cans rolling around. After a while I heard it some more and thought I should go out and get them. I open the door and see a man hammering a stake in my grass right next to the driveway and I realize that he just seal coated my driveway. We did not arrange for anyone to do this job so I looked at the guy and he must have seen my look of confusion on my face. He confirmed my address and I told him that's mine, then he tried to confirm my husband's name, but he said the name of my next door neighbor. Poor guy just did the wrong house! I hated to break the news to him, he was so upset with himself. I felt so bad that I didn't check out the window sooner. I asked him how long he had been there and he said 45 minutes. I asked him how much he normally charges for this and he said $125. I felt so bad for him to be out that labor and materials, so I told him I'd talk to my husband and see if there was something we could do. I asked him for his business card and told him I'd be in touch. We just built this house and have only been in it for 1 1/2 yrs. We had no intention on getting our driveway done this year. It's not in the budget to do this. What would you do? We're thinking of paying him $50 to help him recover his materials cost. He told me he couldn't expect me to pay him, he couldn't ask for that since it was his mistake. I feel so bad for him though, so that's why I think we'll pay him some. Do you think that's okay? Part of me feels like I should pay the whole thing to help him out, but it really was his mistake and we didn't ask for it. And it leaves me stranded here today since my car was in the garage and now I can't drive on it. My parents think I shouldn't pay him anything, but I feel too bad for him to do that. What would you do?
