The latest in the ranting pot. This one had me dying of laughter as that is all I could do.
A new member on Fiverr, contacts me for a job at about 4:00am or so, naturally, I’m asleep, so I didn’t see it. I woke up to two messages, the initial one and one wondering why I haven’t responded, all in the space of two hours. I start my day at 9:30am, so I replied to this message at 10:57am after a long line of messages. [Flag 1]
After I responded, the person responds about 20 minutes later, we discuss the project going forward and I ask for a clarification on a certain part as with that particular gig (translation work) it’s not a simple word for word translation but structure, culture and more must be taken into consideration. The person then decides to rudely ask if I have some disability, and ironically stated that he/she cares about people’s feelings. [Flag 2]
Moving on smartly, still giving this person a chance, I ask them to kindly respond to my inquiry. They person then tells me to send an offer, I request the answer again, now the person says, that I don’t seem to be interested because I haven’t sent an offer and starts playing a race card and I quote “people of color always got some junk they coming to the table with, beat it okay.” [Flag 3].
So… I reported the message and that’s it.
What an ordeal to wake up to, at least… I had a good laugh…
