You can not do it?

I was in the process of building a website with ecommerce functionality for a big launch. I was way ahead of the website functionality, but hadn’t received any content. The day before it was put online?

Customer: I’m sorry, I’m still waiting for the logo and all of the copy.

Me: Look, I’m ready, but I’m going to have to make sure everything is in place before I go live or else you won’t have a website.

Customer: Is there a chance you could just cook something up?

Me: …No. I am neither a graphic designer nor a writer.

Customer: How difficult could that be?

Turns out that attitude was the reason I didn’t have anything to put on the site… because it hadn’t paid the designer or copywriter yet.

And then, surprise! He didn’t pay me for six months.
