Like all the people working with computers, I too was mistaken to someone who knows absolutely everything and can do absolutely anything.
I don’t mind learning new things, so when I worked for this client who built store furniture, I was asked to create 3D models, Build a 3D shopping app with a video game engine, and later on, create the company’s website from scratch.
All this while already working on other projects that were already part of my job.
I was working alone on all of this, since everybody else, well, built furniture.
They hired a digital PR. To this day I have no idea what she did, but she insisted the website just had to be done in WordPress… meaning I had to redo everything and create a custom-made theme that matched the work I’d already done even though I’d never touched WordPress before.
One day I heard they’re doing a big opening gala to exhibit all the projects I’ve been working on, to show how digital they are. I was waiting for the invitation till the day of the gala. It never arrived. The client didn’t even come to talk to me about it.
On the same day (it was about noon) I went to ask him when to come, and he said I wasn’t invited (again, to exhibit all the projects I alone was working on).
Me: Why am I not invited? I’m the only reason you have a digital presence at all.
Client: Honestly, I find it weird you haven’t been able to finish them all up until now. It’s been almost a year!
Me: …I’m sick. I have to go home.
I quit the following day.
Client: You can’t leave us like this! At least finish the website.
It was the worst website I will ever make. All WordPress templates were basically baked-in HTML code for each page.
