Client: I know I said I wanted it done by Friday but I really was expecting it to be done by today.
Me: I’m sorry, I’ll have it done as soon as possible and contact you immediately when it’s ready.
Client: Well that’s really inconvenient for me because I wanted it today. Honestly. What have you even gotten done since yesterday when I last checked in?
Me: I made revisions based on what you asked me to change.
Client: Well I really don’t see any differences. And whatever you did honestly couldn’t have taken you more than a few minutes so I don’t see why you don’t have everything complete today. But I guess you can still have it done by Friday, I just have to cut your pay in half.
