It sounds really bad but I am avoiding work at the moment.
A client needs to follow me up regarding a website I am doing for him, and it's become the most complicated job I have had so far. He seems to think that he's a special case, and that I should either work for free or at a ridiculous rate. I would fire him, but being right in the middle of something it seems pretty difficult. At the moment I have hired someone to do some of the work for me (a touch out of my field), but have had to put a hold on because the invoice is getting quite large, and the last thing I need is for him to receive it and determine he's not paying for it. I don't have the money to fund his job so we're all waiting to see if he's okay with the progress (read: have we hit your budget yet?).
Waiting for him to get back to me however, is putting me off my other work. So now I don't like him because he's painful and because he's stuffing up the rest of my week.
I went out and saw another client of mine yesterday, who makes up for the above mentioned. Him and his wife are lovely. Hard working, down to earth. Their website is really basic, which means the job won't last long and I'll only get to work with them briefly. Pity. I hope they can pass me on to more work, and those people are like them.
The two above mentioned clients both have absolutely no idea about the work I'm doing. Very little background knowledge. Client A obviously does not trust me and is paranoid, rude and demanding. His two favourite lines are "I have a mate that could do that at half the cost!" and "If you sort me out, I'll send lots of work your way." Both total bullshit, and I call him out on it each time. He wants a second website but I think I'm going to turn him down.
The second obviously trusts me. He's helpful and happy to listen to what I have to say and tries to absorb as much information as he possibly can. He asks lots of questions, but is really good to work with.
I just did a really big Facebook friend cull and managed to delete some of the groups I had been part of. I'd really love it if I could get the group down to relatives and close friends, but there are still a couple of random people I interact with, depending on what pops up on their profile. I don't really need to waste time looking at profiles of those I don't talk to.
