Darn, I fell for one of the oldest in the books sigh
Had a client approach me with a very long project but he needed a turnaround of 48 hours, when I would usually allow 7 days for a project of this length. I juggled around other things, put my gigs on holiday for a day to avoid new orders and pulled an all nighter - not an easy thing to do with four kids at home too.
I delivered and he asked for some additional work. He said “I may as well tell you now that I am planning to send you a tip of $100 when we complete because you’ve been so accommodating.”
Delivery was on Wednesday. The order autocompletes shortly and, you’ve guessed it, no tip.
No real point to this post other than, urgh, sometimes I don’t like people very much
