I’ll be clear up front: this is NOT a client, but I think you’ll relate.
Mom: My friend was wondering if you’d make a website for her daughter’s girlfriend’s fundraising campaign for free as a favor. Also, she says they need graphics and a really eye-grabbing layout. And advertising. She said I should tell you that “they need all your tricks to get the word out.”
Me: Mom, no. Besides, I don’t do web design. I’m a System Administrator.
My mom relayed this message back. This was the response:
Mom’s friend: Oh, that’s okay! She still knows more about computers than we do. Tell her we need it by next week, and any time is fine for her to come over and take photos.
I feel like I should mention both the friend’s daughter and I are 46 years old.
