OOppps!

One of the big agencies asked me to go in over the weekend a help with a pitch. I said OK, then they asked to see my folio, as they found someone cheaper. I asked to see their bank balance to see if they could afford me. They have no sense of humour!

Re: OOppps!

This reminds me of an agency that hired me to teach their staff Photoshop and then they said I can't clone and that what I do looks like I'm using the program for the first time. I wasn't, and they called me. lol

Anything goes I guess

Well, funny thing happened..... It is a UK Art Director, when he saw email, and heard I was also from UK, he understood humour. They took me on, there this afternoon and all weekend!

I was treated well, fed well, and put up in a very nice hotel. And the money was excellent!
