Had a project that should have been finished one and a half months ago, but the client slowed everything down because of personal reasons. I’m right in the middle of three new projects now, but still willing to help this client, even though the budget is pretty small and I barely have any time anymore. It’s not the first time something I waited for two weeks had suddenly to be done overnight.
Client: I need you to work some more on this project urgently. Can I send it to you at the end of the week and you work on it over the weekend so I can get it back on Monday?
Me: Well, actually I’m pretty busy again and have family plans over the weekend, but if it’s that urgent, I’ll see where I can fit it in. Send it to me as soon as possible.
Client: Oh, okay. It can wait until Monday then.
Now it’s Tuesday afternoon and I haven’t heard from the client yet. Don’t cry wolf, please.
