I had just gone into labour (to have a baby) when a regular client called with some last-minute and typically urgent editing he needed done. It was 10pm on a Friday night.
I explained that I was in labour and that we would be heading to the hospital.
Client: But I heard labour can take anywhere from 10-14 hours, so you should have enough time to do this edit quickly. Please?
Can you make that grey more cheery?
