There is nothing more frustrating than a buyer who is ridiculously vague. No matter how many times you deliver the work, it’s never what he wants. Yet, he isn’t being specific enough. I had an extremely long day at work today. When I came home, I tackled one of these jobs where the buyer ordered without contacting me first. (Granted, my gig says that all buyers should contact me before ordering, but that’s not the point.)
I wrote a beautiful piece based on the instructions he gave. When I submitted it, he responded with BOLD lettering that that’s not what he wanted. Like I’m some idiot. I revised based on his new instructions. It still wasn’t what he wanted. I just wasted TWO HOURS of my life for NO pay. Absolute waste of time. Thanks for the headache.
