I'm a little pissed right now as I just got another email that he's booked a gig for March 10th. Didnt ask me if I was free or not. I felt like telling him that I'm busy that night but unlike him, I'm not a d!ck. Instead, I just told him not to book anymore gigs between now and the end of April unless he has someone ready to take my place. I promised him that I would finish the current gigs that he has booked thru April unless he finds someone to replace me beforehand. May is currently unbooked and at that point, I really don't care as I'm out.

The problem that I have is that my son takes possession of his new house next weekend and we have 6 weeks to gut his kitchen and main bathroom and renovate them before he fully moves in Seeing as I work all week, I can only help out on weekends. This guy now has me booked for 5 of those 6 weekends.

If it was me Rob, I would tell him you are busy. He should have asked you first and yes, he's the dick for not asking you.

I'm with John on this one. You clearly explained that you would fulfill all the engagements that were already booked, and not that you were willing to cram in more. Your family is more important than this guy's pipe dream.
