And some machines are dropped from great heights lovingly
And some great bellies ache with many bumblebees
And they sting so terribly”—Joanna Newsom
CLIENT:We’d like to go ahead and book you to handle this year’s edition but, of course, we’re in the middle of a tough recession. So we’ll only be able to offer you about 50% of what we paid last year.
ME:I gave you a heavily discounted price last year as an introductory deal. I said at the time it was a one-off and included a quote at the full price to illustrate.
CLIENT:Yeah… Anyway, we’d like you to get to work immediately, since the deadline is
this time next week.
ME:You had a three-month lead last time.
CLIENT:Uh-huh… Moving forward, we want you to treat this as urgent. Oh, and we’ll be paying you when the project comes into profit, of course.
ME:So, you want me to do three months graft in a week, on the promise that when or if you make money out of my work you’ll pay me less than half what my time is worth.
CLIENT:To be honest, we thought you’d be more grateful.
