So I had a client that provided me with a order, to pretty much take an article full of mismatched garbage and formatting mistakes, and rewrite and turn it into 3 articles.
I did that. Then they decided to nitpick every single tiny thing, including capitalized proper nouns and tried to tell me that my work was awful and “unfit for publication.”
I told them that most of their issues were nonsense, and that I will correct the few minor spelling errors and send it back it.
They told me my actions were “deplorable” and that I sucked at my job, and then went silent for 4 days. They did not even log onto Fiverr according to the “Last seen” feature.
the order marked itself as complete, and as I did the work they wanted, I thought that was OK. Apparently not. They apparently complained to Fiverr, and got their full refund back without ever asking for a cancellation!
That means that I am out of 80$, and several hours of my time formatting and trying to make sense of some poorly written rough draft that in some areas was just rambling or didn’t make much sense.
But seriously, if you are going to comb through my writings and find every tiny nuance and tell me that it wasn’t written to specifications that were not laid out in the contract, then why am I being hired?
Fiverr gave me no actual reason for this cancellation, btw. But whatever, now I know to avoid people who don’t have profile pictures.
