    There is this guy who's job it is to cut the grass in a nearby churchyard, and as of last year I started helping him for a little cash every week. The first week of doing it, he phones me up and says where am I? I explain to him that unless he gives me a few days notice, I am not likely to be free to come. From then on, he hardly ever calls or texts me when he comes. However, if I hear him mowing and am free to come, he's always like "where have you been??"

    I don't know what to make of it...

    Since you havent signed anything and it's cash in hand, you dont have any duties to him in a legal sense so i wouldnt make much of it
