This is just a rant, but I am annoyed, to say the least.
I get an order yesterday - sometime around 4 p.m. At this time, I am spending time with my family at the mall - away from my computer. I had been determined not to answer any messages on my phone unless it was from family. I was spending QUALITY time with my kids.
Sue me! A mother who loves to be with her kids.
When I get home, the first thing I need to contend with is supper, then dishes. And, then the little one’s homework and getting him ready for bed. Gasp! I’m doing the mom thing! For shame!
Well, I head to bed a little earlier than normal - reminding myself to get in contact with the buyer in the morning to let them know I’ve got their order and will get to it soon. In reality, I work best first thing in the morning - usually up at 3:30 a.m, working until 5:30 a.m. when the kid gets up and then, off and on, until 7:45 or so when I leave for my job. I rarely have time to work in the afternoon hours - My best working times are early in the morning and on the weekends.
But, didn’t you hear dear Fiverr sellers! We are robots. We have to be attached to our computers and phones at all times. What if I didn’t have the Fiverr app? I would never have known I had this order until this morning.
Yes, he tried to cancel, claiming I was taking too long to message him and that my response time is 2 hours. Isn’t that response time in response to messages… not orders?!
Geez, the nerve of some folks!
Rant over! I have orders to complete and not a lot of time to get them done today!
