2 months later, the client starts to get frustrated because this is taking longer than she was told, and she didn't see it coming together like the drawing of the mockup we did together. Now in all fairness, the site was fully functional for what the client wanted, but sloppy, and looked nothing like the mockup. I could never have handed that over with my name attached.
Programmer then tells me that he couldn't get it to look how the client wanted it because he is the only one working on it and it would be a lot of work. Not that it's impossible, but too much work.
So this week, the client pulls the plug and says she'll take her business elsewhere since I'm not getting it together.
Now the programmer is pissed and demanding his pay since he did work on it for 2 months.
So my question is this. Since I did not get paid and I actually had to buy a script for him that he sprung up on me mid project, should I pay him anything? Now I try to be fair and I don't burn bridges but this guy has already hurt my reputation and wasted months of my clients time. Plus, I had to spend my own money on the script.
