I work as a Graphic Designer/Illustrator. One of my clients is a very flaky person who some reason will often spring up work at odd hours in the night, well past bedtime.
There was a particular assignment I was asked to do a month prior to its due date, but when I asked about the specs, I was instead given the specs for a different job. Weeks go by and the original work was never mentioned again. It’s finally the due date for the original assignment when I get a phone call from my boss at 1AM asking if I could have it done by 11AM. When I ask for the specs once again, I am greeted with silence.
Not wanting to sit on my hands anymore, I just went ahead and stayed up all night to make something based on some general standards and submitted it.
11AM rolls past. And then 12PM. Finally, 2PM rolls past and my client contacts me to inform me they fell asleep as soon as they called me and slept through the due date.
The graphic was never used.
