A client came to me looking for a logo and poster designs for a symposium centered around world films. The job was rushed, but she had insisted that she needed everything as soon as possible to leave time for printing. So, I began to work, and two days later…
Me: Hello! I have the sketches for the logo. Can you give them a look-over and tell me which one you like best so I can get working on the final design this weekend?
Three days pass.
Me: I know you wanted this order as soon as possible, but I need to know which of these you want more so I can work on the final design for you.
Client: Oh, Hi. Unfortunately, we’ve found someone else to do the job much faster. They’ve already done the logo and are working on the two poster designs we wanted.
Me: Wait—so when did you hire this person?
Client: Oh, the same day as you. They work a lot faster. I’m sorry, but you’re fired.
