Sounds Like They Just Didn’t Want To Pay For Your Work

, , | Right | May 6, 2022

I live in the UK. A while ago, while working as a copywriter, I wrote and proofed about sixty pages of web content. After chasing the client for sign-off on that stage of the project for a week, they turned around and said this:

Client: “The copy isn’t good enough. There are a number of spelling and grammatical errors.”

Me: “Can you be more specific?”

Client: “Well, here, ‘focused’ is spelled wrong: ‘focussed’.”

That was the only error they could find.

Client: “I’m sure there were more when I last looked.”

For the record, focused/focussed can be spelled both ways in the UK. And I’m still out quite a bit of money.
