I’ll be clear up
front: this is NOT a client, but I think you’ll relate.
Mom: My friend
was wondering if you’d make a website for her daughter’s girlfriend’s
fundraising campaign for free as a favor. Also, she says they need graphics and
a really eye-grabbing layout. And advertising. She said I should tell you that “they
need all your tricks to get the word out.”
Me: Mom, no.
Besides, I don’t do web design. I’m a System Administrator.
My mom relayed this
message back. This was the response:
Mom’s friend: Oh,
that’s okay! She still knows more about computers than we do. Tell her we need
it by next week, and any time is fine for her to come over and take photos.
I feel like I should
mention both the friend’s daughter and I are 46 years old.
