I was on holiday at the beginning of the month and a colleague was supposed to deliver a design project in my stead. However, the client said he was happy to wait two weeks until I came back so that he could keep working with me.
Client: When will the magazine be delivered?
Me: Not be until tomorrow.
Client: It was supposed to be delivered at the beginning of the month. It’s two weeks late.
Me: You said you were fine with the project being delayed while I was away.
Client: Yes, but I thought you would have made up that time so it could be delivered on time?
Me: That’s not possible. I was away on holiday for two weeks and you said it could wait.
Client: Couldn’t you have finished it while you were away? I said it could wait but I didn’t know that meant it would take longer!
