I work on staff at a small non-profit. Every year they give a fundraising gala and need a graphic for the invitation. Overwhelmed with other work, I had already told my supervisor I couldn’t do the job. Then a board member emailed me.
Client: Are you available to work on the invitation for the gala?
Me: No, I’m sorry, but as I told my supervisor, I’m not available to work on the invitation for the gala.
Client: I’m not asking you that. Who can do it?
