A longtime client who runs a local nonprofit asked me to do a couple dozen rather detailed new webpages for his site (kind of a mini-site within his larger website).
We both live in Seattle, Washington.
He made a big deal (as he always does) about how he is short on cash, waiting for grant money to come in, etc.
So, because of this long sob story, I told him I would do it for X amount & he agreed to that.
Then, he says, oh, and can you have it done in the next few days, before my girlfriend fly out to attend an art exhibit in Venice, Italy?
I just wanted to scream. And I declined the job.
