Fuck You, Alan

I have had a tremendous amount of work for the past couple of months and at least two new clients. Since I last wrote I have only taken on three little jobs from Alan and they seemed unavoidable. I did put him on hold, saying simply that I had ‘gone away’ and it wasn’t until the end of the week of my ‘return’ that he got in touch and chucked something my way, which I could well have done without. I’ve managed to keep Alan at arm’s length but sensing that he wouldn’t continue asking and being refused by me, I decided to lay my cards on the table – no response, surprise, surprise! – basically, his 55p rate is for a 3 day turnaround, although Alan must be bad at maths because Friday afternoon to Monday morning at 8.00 does not constitute 3 days in my book, added to that, it is actually a weekend; simply put, he is taking the piss! After refusing a weekend of work for the grand total of bugger all, I wrote Alan an email, I did not know when I started just how long it would become but on reading it through I felt it all needed saying and I pressed ‘send’. This could be a brave move or a completely stupid move but I told him that for as long as I am not desperate, I will not be accepting any more work from him at 55p, ‘So don’t call me, I’ll call you.’ Wonder if he’ll take my call!?




Early Bird

I was requested to get up at 7.00 this Monday morning to type an urgent transcript.

I always get up at 7.15 during the week to take Son to school but this morning Honey did the run.

The email arrived at 7.15 and by 8.35 my job was done, earning the grand total of £17.69.

I’m off out now for a bacon sarnie with Moo.

Wonder if any more work comes in this week? Bloody hope so!
