Have fun getting that. Being a sound guy is an 8 (or more) hour shift, it's a "day" job for most people who do it, and the folks who do it deserve to get a days wages for a days work. Now, at the same time, he's also supposed to be serving you, and if you have a problem with the service you are getting you should take that up with his boss.
