Don't you just hate it when you are given a job at the last possible moment - right before disaster is about to strike the job giver - and they make their own time management incompetency your problem? The older I get the harder it is to say a grateful 'yes' and take on the job.
Why is it that editing and writing seem such soft (and easy to execute) skills to those who've never written more than a four-word sentence or edited anything more than a forged sick note as a child?
The world is full of such misguided individuals (mentally referred to as idiots!) and it would seem, if the groans of my freelancing sisters are anything to go by, that these creatures exist throughout the marketplace.
