today i got a little bit annoyed. i had spent a few hours last night with a friend who wanted me to design a quick logo for a company she was starting up. i tots dont have any money at the moment and she knows that, and she wanted to go out and get foods, and i was like eee i cant really but whatever she wants to so i did and ended up spending money i dont have. but i was like, wellll she is going to pay me for the work im doing, ill get the dinner money back from that. then at the very end she just goes, so um, do you want payment for this? or can i just shout you dinner?
um, yes payment! duh! you think i do this for fun? no, its my job! and she knows that im scrimping and saving to go overseas, why would i do this for free? far out man, im like this person has the hide to think all my time and effort is only worth a $15.95 burger and chips? no way… *shakes head* anyway she didnt say anything at first but then i got a text today saying, “oh just hold off on the logo for the moment.” translation: i dont wanna pay for it so dont do it. gee thanks.
so in the end i spent money (that again, i didnt have) to not get a freelance job. sweet.
