Instance #1: I thank the buyer for placing their order.
Their response? “It’s my complete pleasure, hopefully…”
Instance #2: I thank another buyer for placing their order of a 150-word document.
Response: I’d like a 200-word document, but I’ll pay you the extra word amount after I see that what you write is satisfactory enough.
What they say isn’t particularly mean, but it seems like they expect me to possibly fail. I’ve been writing for 10+ years now, but I don’t like that kind of pressure.
In general, I’ve been working with clients who read the directions wrong and I clarify things over and over again, and they still don’t get it. A 250-word bio is half a page (I state all that in the gig), but then they wonder why they can’t get 2 pages for the same price… -_-
And there are PLENTY more, but these are the most recent ones. Luckily, things aren’t all negative. I’ve also been working with some amazingly pleasant clients.
What are some rude remarks you’ve come across on here? Or well-meaning comments that come off the wrong way…
