So lately, I’ve been getting orders from people who don’t message me in advance but do gush about how great I am and what success they have had with my work previously.
Naturally, I’m flattered. Who wouldn’t be? The problem is that I have never ever dealt with these people previously. What is more, I am starting to suspect that these people are psychological piranhas of the worst kind possible.
For instance, just yesterday I got an order on my $30 video and writing gig which incudes a brief 30-second ‘introduction to the topic discussed in your article.’ In short, what this gig definitely does not include is the creation of a full explainer video. - This is why I am a little annoyed but also amused when people like this send me a youtube link to videos which I have apparently created previously for them which they would like me to once again emulate the style of.
Well, no. At first I thought that these orders were genuine mistakes but I am now realizing that someone (possibly using multiple accounts) is taking full advantage of me.
Well, the jokes on you Mo Fo. You can only know my name and my in-built penchant for charity if you have found me on this forum. In this case, no, I’m not going to create your custom 1-minute video for $30. In fact, I’m not even going to offer to do it for extra funds. Tomorrow you will get exactly what I state you will in my gig description.
This is the end Mr. Whoever You Are. Read this, weep, and know that whatever username disguise created in May 2017 which you might come up with next, it will not be entertained no matter how much you flatter me!
