I was hired to edit some videos promoting tourism in a city. I was supposed to edit a number of clips into shorts about the different neighborhoods. There was a problem, however:
Me: Hey – these clips aren’t labelled by neighborhood. I don’t live in this city, and I’m really not familiar with it. Would you mind organizing them so that I can put them together correctly?
Client: I don’t have time for that, sorry. How about you just make the videos shorter?
Me: …That doesn’t really solve the problem, though.
Client: I really don’t have time to deal with this. Figure something out.
Their inability to spend 5 minutes meant I couldn’t do the job at all.
