I designed and developed a website for a medical IoT [Internet of Things] startup. They typically outsourced their programming to cheap labor. As a result, they’d often ask me to pick up the slack for someone who wasn’t doing their job. This is just one of the unique requests I get every few days:
Client: I need you to change some text on a website.
(It was a different website than the one I’d made for them).
Me: Well, we agreed my project was finished but I’d be happy to open a new contract. It would be at an hourly rate, $50, five hours minimum.
Client: My web developer needs the text changed, here’s the text he needs you to use. Let me know how long it will take you to make these changes.
At this point, I was thinking “your web developer, who is building the entire backend systems to your application, is unable to change the text on a website? How the F*** did he get this job?”
