Four years ago, the job wasn't doable within the timescale and they didn't have a clue what they wanted.

Wouldn't have taken my current but it was a good go between. Looking for a new one because they have me doing SEO work.

I'm so sorry

A few months ago.

>Emailed me about a contract.
>Wanted it done in a week.
>I told them the rush job would cost 3x the standard rate
>They said no way
>Three days pass
>They email me again saying they would pay the adjusted rate
>Reply, "Nah."

I refuse work all the time. Based on 3 criteria.

>Do I like the work?
>Do I like the people I work with/for?
>Is the salary/money good?

If its 2/3 or 3/3 I take the job.
If its 1 out of 3 I refuse.

There where a couple times where a company that I absolutely hated offered me a job with a salary that was more then I make in a year.
The look on their faces when I told them I didn't give a fuck was priceless.

Never sacrifice your hapiness for dollars.

You refused a paycheck of ovet 120k just because you didn't like the client?

>>241014
You must be skilled so good that there are so many offers waiting for you to reply

>>241026
People can't even comprehend the idea I do not care about money. Its like the idea doesnt even exist.
>>241028
I am not that good. I live in a small crappy apartment without much belongings. I make enough to have food and pay the bills.
I am happy and healthy thats what counts. Dont need anything more.

If you care about money, great. I am not here to judge others. Do whatever you want.

You get it.

>when
Last year

>who
Well-known porn company

>why
Unreasonable workload for the given time frame.
It would also look bad that I was photoshopping genitals at night and working for a children's company during the day; a job that I enjoy and is fairly secure.

Definetly would of been an interesting experience though.

>>241056
Do you have history doing that kind of stuff? How did the job even come about?
>>
>>241014
>Never sacrifice your hapiness for dollars.
seems legit.

>>240206
i declined an offer few days ago, as the company i work for (as an accountant) found out that i do graphic design, so they asked me to design a logo for a new branch of the company.
i declined the job because they didn't know what they want. i designed three logos for them, and they kept asking to change this and that until i gave up. never work with someone so picky. they will make you feel insecure about your skill.

KIDS NO DON'T LISTEN TO HIM THIS NEVER WORKS

did they pay you for the designs you did?
>>
>>241846
not yet. they're still in the "discussion phase".

Early last year. Someone I knew from college asked me to do a series of 10 to 12 illustrations that was basically hipster Wheres Waldo for his ad company.
Everytime I asked him about things like the time frame to get it done, or payment, or, other conceptual ideas, he kept giving me vague answers, usually accompanied with two vague questions at the end.
After a few exchanges, I told him to find someone else, and to stop being so fucking vague when dealing with freelancers. That kind of shady stuff usually means its just someone trying to get free work out of someone. Been burned a few times that way.

Quite the opposite here. Mom always said "money doesn't smell"

I was happy to create a medium-big campaign for the church despite being a fedora myself. Fuck Jesus, I got top dollar and a good night's sleep.

Last year. Wanted to pay me less than a quarter of the going rate. Well, i might do that from time to time for a good cause or a friend. This guy sure wasn't one and the job was boring as well.
