I’d been chasing down payment from a client who owed me $1500 after many hours worked. After weeks of not hearing from him, I got this message in December:
Client: Due to lack of communication over the past Christmas holidays, I’ve decided to cancel the project. It’s a shame because I really wanted to make this project a success. Oh well. Happy Holidays.
P.S. I won’t be able to respond to this email quickly due to it being the Holidays. I’m spending time with family. Thanks.
