Boris was supposed to deliver the project within 2 weeks, but I extended the deadline by a month, then requested an additional extension due to a kidney health issue and I granted him another month. He continued to request more time, citing the same health issue, and after four months, he was still unable to deliver the project. So, I decided to end project.
Interestingly, Boris then began working on another project without any apparent health issues, which made me question his professionalism!
