What would you say to someone who did a decent job but you know charged too much?

Since they want to do more work for you and you found someone as good for a much better price.
I said little because the man is egotistical and full of himself. Arguing would not benefit me.
I am angry and felt like confronting him but it would be a waste of time. I let it go but I will never recommend him. He did tile work in our kitchen for a decent price. He repaired my son's bathroom because we had a leak. It had to be repaired but he talked us into doing more. He bullshitted my husband about how cutting corners would look badly.
We had a new top put on the vanity and the worker commented that the bathroom looked nice. Than he quoted my husband a much cheaper price for the work that was done. We will be doing more work eventually. He will not ever work for me again. That is his lose and my friends will not use him.
When you highball someone you lose and LOL I have a big mouth.

I suppose it would depend on how much too much.
Without question, if I found someone that can do as good a job for less, I'd hire them over the other guy.
I don't think it would be practical to tell the first guy, because the second guy may not turn out to be as good as he sounds.
Burning bridges is never really a good idea, even after you're safely on the other side.
The first guy knows he's charging too much, and his job volume probably reflects that.
That suggests he/she wants to do less for more... not a good trait.
I call that being lazy.

He is very egotistical and thinks all American's are wealthy. Which I am not.
