I accepted a small job of making a flyer for my
aunt’s boyfriend’s amateur jazz band. After three weeks of going back and
forth, unnecessary changes that could have been avoided easily had his first
brief been complete, I send him the invoice.
I get a call from him the next day.
Client: Well I didn’t know it would cost this much
Me: I’m doing this work at a pretty big discount
Client: Look, I asked you because we’re
basically family! I wanted to give you some work! I mean I could’ve
gone to anyone else!
Never again am I working for “family” members.
