A potential client is interested in hiring me to ‘polish’ some of his short stories, with a view to having them published. He wants to communicate with me via Google Plus, so I give him my contact details. A day or so goes by, and then I hear back from him.
Client: Having evaluated your social media, I am unimpressed as it seems to be filled with animal videos and conversations with people I don’t recognise. There is no evidence of your actual work.
Me: Well, best of luck to you.
I swear I could HEAR the sound of the dodged bullet whizzing by.
