So we got this work inquiry, it’s gonna pay $2,500! Our proposal was accepted, and I was sooooo excited! I mean, I could really use $2,500. There were details as to the nature of the project, lots of technicalities are underway (like stuff in writing, sending art samples and resumes, etc.), then I reread the initial inquiry, this is all for a project that is 3 or 4 years down the road.
Yeah, I said 3 or 4 years down the road!
When I realized this I sent the email below to Tom Hart who had scored the job for me/us:
“That’s as disappointing as not getting the job… not that I won’t need the work 3 or 4 years from now, too…
Hope I can get by until then.
Thanks for landing this, in three of four years I’ll buy you lunch!”
