My buddy has just decided it isn’t worth it anymore. He’s a screen printer/logo designer and garment prices keep going up and his customers want to pay less. He has sold everything, his house, his building, his equipment, and his cars, and left the country.
He wraps up his affairs, finishes up his orders, and notifies the majority of his customers that he is out of business. He then gives me all of his artwork in case a former client wants it.
Former Client: I need 100 T-shirts for this weekend.
Me: [Buddy] is out of business. I am an emergency contact.
Former Client: Tell him I’ll pay double; I need the T-shirts for this weekend.
I look up the customer’s information and he hasn’t ordered in many years.
Me: [Buddy] ave has left the building; find another printer.
Former Client: Tell him to die a slow painful death.
I delete the client’s artwork and block the number!
