I developed a social media campaign for a client, and he offered me a full time PR and business development position at his company.
After I signed the papers to on-board to the company, he decided that was an appropriate moment to PROFESS HIS LOVE FOR ME.
We’d only met in person three times. Also:
Me: I’m married.
Client: Marriages end!
I left when he tried to kiss me, and was basically in shock.
A few days later he sent me an email as if nothing had happened.
Client: The new campaign should be up and running next week. Did you finish designing those business cards? Anyway, come in on Monday and I’ll introduce you to everyone. I just wanted to let you know that I consider you an asset to our organization and everything else is purely professional. [emphasis added].
Needless to say, I backed out of the position. Also, I remain happily married.
