It annoys hell out of me to work like a rented mule for ten days straight and then at the very end of it find myself all alone and so unable to implement the solution that’s at hand because I’ve worked so hard to make it so. That’s where I found myself today, or now officially yesterday, and I’m still quite displeased so quite likely to get high so I can put off my displeasure until tomorrow. Or officially later today, if you’re one who pays attention to the clock. Being a night owl I can’t do that — I start four out of five workdays on the same calendar day upon which the previous workday ended.
The interesting part is that I don’t yet know if this client is one who’ll just pay me for the time I’ve put into saving his business, or one who’ll force me to negotiate with him to achieve an outcome that leaves us both unhappy but hopefully somewhere shy of intolerably so. I’ve clients in both camps, and I absolutely love hearing from those in the former camp. It’s when I don’t know yet which I’m dealing with that I get a little nervous.
Oh, hey, it’s time to get heathen with high. See ya!
