I had to do an animated typography-style video for a client. I told her to have the script ready by a certain date so I would have enough time to finish the video before her deadline. I contacted her the day the script was due.
Me: How’s the script coming?
Client: I haven’t started it, but I made an outline, so you can go ahead and start creating graphics.
Me: No, I’m going to wait until you have the script done, in case you end up changing your mind on things.
A week later:
Me: Is the script ready?
Client: I’ve had writer’s block, so I’ve spent the last week making graphics for you in Microsoft Paint to save you some work.
Me: Thanks, but I can’t use those. You should just worry about writing.
Client: It’s no trouble! I want to help you since you’re so far behind the deadline.
She ended up submitting the script four weeks late.
