I’ve just completed a proofreading job for a buyer. It wasn’t easy. In fact it was a total pain.
Despite their poor English, I maintained good communication, even carried out a bit of research to double-check some of the info they’d written (it’s the kind of guy I am) - all part of the service.
Their written feedback was “Great service, THANK YOU, you worked very hard at it!”
Well, that all sounds rather lovely - even ‘thank you’ was written in uppercase to emphasise it! They must love me I thought…
So why give me 4 stars in every category and not 5?! In seven years of selling on Fiverr, apart from one scammer who gave me 1 star, no one has ever given me 4 stars. Grrr.
This particular buyer was one of those - I call them - puppy dog buyers. They’re forever sending random messages, wanting to change the original order, chasing delivery, etc. His job took far longer than I would have liked it to, and that’s the reward I get!
By the way, I call them puppy dog buyers because just like a puppy they’re too excitable and can’t focus on one thought for very long.
Just had to get that off my chest. I’m now going to block them.
