There comes a time where every person has a bad day but dang it - WHY TODAY!
I’ve had two buyers want to cancel their orders; another is not responding to my request for assistance (so I have to cancel it, as it’s due tomorrow.)
One of the proposed cancelled orders was due to my misunderstanding an article. ehh - it happens from time to time, which is why I was always tell my buyers if you feel I’ve misunderstood something, let me know and I’ll be happy to go back over it. Geeze, give me a chance to rectify it, people. I’m only human.
The other person wanted something edited - his instructions were fairly clear except for one aspect and we handled that way. It was the way I thought. Then I edited the piece. Now, it’s not a normal blog or article that needs editing but a resume style type of material. This is something a little out of my league, but given Fiverr’s new system - I can’t afford to really send a cancellation. Even worse, he sends me a new file that’s more than 100 words than the first one and more than my $10 specification.
I do the job to the best of my abilities. Don’t deliver it because I want to make sure we’re on the same page. He comes back with… We’re going to have to cancel. Best Wishes. Not even a word of WHY he feels he should cancel the order.
No buddy! You’re going to tell me where I effed up and go from there. Even more so, I should be paid for the time I spent on it and for the fact that YOU did not order accordingly. I really don’t give a hoot and a holler for ratings. Bite me on that regard.
I am sick of the crap lately… Maybe it’s the fact that crap has been downhill all week for me - if it’s not one thing, it’s another. And, Fiverr feels more like a job than in times’ past.
I can tell I’m getting burned out!
Screw Fiverr for the rest of the weekend!
