A client wanted a script for an introductory video to his Youtube channel, so I did the research and sent him the finished script.
Client: This isn’t what we want. Please focus on the “why” of my channel.
Me: OK, sure thing.
I changed the script, doing my best to reflect his channel’s content and his reasons for creating it..
Client: This is a fail; I can’t see the WHY. Change it.
I completely rewrote the script, at this point stealing his own words about his channel verbatim.
Client: Sorry, but this is a complete failure. You’re failing to catch the WHY. Thanks for your interest.
I didn’t receive
payment, or any clarification about what was wrong with the script. If he
noticed that I even basically plagiarized him in the last script, he didn’t
I doubt he actually read the whole thing, honestly.
