My dearest and most favorite client (note sarcasm):
When I took your photos and told you your proofs would be online on Friday (on Friday not by Friday) I must have been unclear. For that I apologize, I hope this note clarifies my meaning. "Online on Friday" does not mean call me 8 times on Thursday checking to see if I have had a chance to put them online yet. In fact, by calling me 8 times on Thursday before 5 p.m. I actually spent more time listening to your messages and returning your calls than I did working on your pictures. I apologize in advance that your pictures are going to be delayed. However, due to an overabundance of phone calls today I will not be able to get my real work done until tomorrow or Monday. (And partly because I really want to piss you off.) In retrospect, were the 8 calls worth it?
