So I have a guy that I do regular work for but he's flaky at the best of times, sometimes he takes an age to pay, sometimes he "didn't receive the invoice", sometimes he is super vague in his brief "I want Hollywood Sleek - don't ask".
So anyway he has asked me recently to do him a logo...I spent a good half a day on this for him and sent him over a few drafts...Then he says he has "done it himself in 5 mins on photoshop" and it was "easy" the logo that he's done looks horrendous but cest la vie...
Got into an argument because he had "asked all his friends and family" and they said they "loved the design" I told him they WOULD say that so they wouldn't hurt his feelings/are biased don't care.
Then he asks if I could re-do it in a similar style to his and make it better.
I spend more time on it and then get a message through saying "nevermind dont bother I will sort it" So now he's had a good day out of me plus a consult on his own work and after all that time I have to just smile and say okay no worries.
So should I charge for hours work? What would you do?
Thanks everyone....and yes I should have asked for payment upfront but as hes a regular I considered it low risk but obviously not.
