I was working for an older gentleman who, when he found out I was gay, started making uncomfortable advances.

I was making a simple brochure for him, but he kept making small amends and demanding that we meet in person for every revision.

Me: Hi there, sorry but I can’t make this meeting too long. I have to meet MY PARTNER this afternoon.

Note the “subtle hint.”

Client: Oh not a problem, I just wanted to fit this in – no pun intended! Haha!

Me: (forcing awkward laughter) Ha ha. Well, I think you’ll be happy with these amends.

Client: Oh that looks much better, thank you! Beautiful results from a beautiful man!

Me: Thank you, that’s very kind.

I faked receiving a text.

Me: Oh, that’s my PARTNER. Is there anything else I can do you for before I go?

I shouldn’t have asked.

Client: It’s perfect, send me the print version as soon as you can. I’m on vacation next week in my Spanish Villa. Lounging in my pool and hot tub all alone, alas. I wish I had some company to keep me from getting bored. 

Me: (ignoring the obvious subtext) Have fun!

A week later I get an email from the client. It contained several photos of him topless lounging near his pool. No subject line, no context or subject, sent to me directly.

A few minutes later:

Client: Sorry! I meant to send those to someone else.

Sure….
