So I thought, "A text message? From a solicitor? At 9.00 pm? This is a little unusual. Where do I know this name from?"
So I searched my emails. This was a scumbag who refused to pay me for a job because he thought...well, it's a long story but he was 100% wrong, I ended up having to get the court clerks involved, and the solicitors on the other side, it was a whole ordeal. Everybody agreed that this guy was responsible for the full payment except for this guy.
Then he never booked me for a job again. Not that I would have taken a job from this asshole after that. This all happened over a year ago.
So after I discovered who this guy was, I thought, "How can I zing this asshole?" I thought about refering him to the ignored emails where I'm asking him for payment. Profanity is always an option.
But then I thought, "No, be classy about this." So I just sent, "Good luck".
Zinged him good. I wasn't able to do the job anyyay, I have shit booked, but there's absolutely no way that I would do work for that guy again.
Then he sends me a message, "Thanks for getting back to me. I've found somebody else."
Really? Within 10 minutes? Then why did you bother me? Why are you doing all of this at 9.00 pm on a Friday?
