A buyer purchased a podcast intro/outro from me but didn’t attach any requirements. They only sent me an audio file of a guy talking for 4 mins. I messaged them to say I couldn’t get started without a script and they immediately sent me 5 messages in a row saying
you need a script??
I don’t have a script!!!
what do you mean you need a script???
I explained that, as the nature of my work is reading words out loud, I require a script to get started.
if I knew all you did was read a script, I would’ve hired someone else
WHAT IS HAPPENING
a bit of back and forth went like this:
buyer: I don’t know how I was supposed to know all you do is the recording. I need you to write the script
me: I don’t even provide script writing as a service
buyer: well then your profile is misleading ma’am
me: it says nowhere on my profile that I provide script writing as a service, and says everywhere that I sell recordings
buyer: well then cancel the order and you need to put in your gig description that you don’t do script writing
Should I also add into my gig description that I don’t do wood carving, logo design, and programming?
I’ve asked CS to cancel for me. What a bizarre evening it’s been.
