I work as Art Director
for a small print and marketing outfit. One regular client decided to leave us
and follow our salesperson to her new job when she quit – but rather than admit
he just wanted to stay with his longtime rep, he told the owner the quality of
our design had gone downhill. OK, whatever.

after the rep had quit her new job and left the area, he came back to our
business wanting his annual Christmas card mailing designed.

legal arguments written out in detail for me to choose from, then I can decide
if I’ll pay for one of them
