I’m a grant writer. I was working with a client on an online submission. I had gone back and forth with her on this submission numerous times asking her for details, emails that she didn’t answer, then she would keep emailing me asking me if it was submitted. To which I responded that she hadn’t given me the required data yet, so no, it wasn’t submitted. Also, in my initial conversation, I was providing her all the materials, and since it’s an online submission, I typically have clients actually upload and check all the documents themselves. After all our back and forth she wanted me to do the final submission myself.
Me: Do you want to log in and make sure every thing is correct?
Client: No, you can do it, if you made the final edits.
Client: Can you send me the final submission?
I already sent it to her.
Client: Oh no! Those are the wrong work samples! I gave you the wrong ones.
Me: Since it’s the weekend, I’ll reach out when they are in the office on Monday and ask them to swap out the work sample for the correct version.
Client: Maybe in the future I should check everything before the final submission.
