I used to work at a copy and print center where we made works of presentation cards, books, notebooks, etc. And the place was located near a high school, college and tribunal. It got pretty busy.
One morning, a client came in and took a USB out of her purse.
Me: Hi, what can I help you with?
Client: I need 10 books for a presentation today. The perforations need to be done horizontal, letter size, full color, please.
I tried to make the books quickly and it was kind of hard because each of them had just 15 pages, which was actually too little to work with. I kept at it even as other clients came through the door and were waiting, trying to get it done in a hurry. When I was almost finished:
Client: You know what? I’m going to get you to make 17 more. And can you add two extra pages to all the books you already finished? Hope that isn’t a bother. Will I have to pay for the extra two pages?
Me: (silently resolves to look for another job)
