After all, I had to find out if his treatments really worked and I had to be paid for a translation before I could pay him.

He could not believe his ears.
When I told him, that this was the way of the translation-world, he looked at me with a pair of unbelievable eyes.
Really? Never heard of such rubbish. I want immediate payment and don't give reductions.
And that is the way it should be, payment upon delivery. (POD).
