A close family member emailed me at 7 PM on a Sunday.
Client: Hey, sorry to bother you, but I have something I need to be translated by 10 AM by tomorrow. Can you do that for me, please?
I’d done similar requests for him before. They were always quite short and easy so I assumed this one would be too.
Ten minutes later he sent me a five-page long contract, full of legal terms and expressions, to be translated.
I finished at 6 AM, sent the translation, slept two hours and then arrived late for work.
