Subject poster



Hi

I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was
wondering if you are not too busy you could make a poster for me. It has to
be A4 and I will photocopy it and put it around my suburb this afternoon.




This is the only photo of her I have she answers to the name Missy and is black and white and
about 8 months old. missing on Harper
street and my phone number.

Thanks Shan.

Dear Shannon,

That is shocking news.

Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop
everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.

Regards, David.

yeah that’s
not what I was looking for at all. It looks like a movie and how come the photo
of Missy is so small?

Dear Shannon,

It’s a design
thing. The cat is lost in the negative space.

Regards, David.

That’s just stupid. Can you do it properly please? I am extremely emotional over this and
was up all night in tears. you seem to think it is funny. Can you make the
photo bigger please and fix the text and do it in colour please. Thanks.

Dear Shannon,

Having worked with designers for a few years now, I would have assumed you understood, despite
our vague suggestions otherwise, we do not welcome constructive criticism. I
don’t come downstairs and tell you how to send text messages, log onto
Facebook and look out of the window. I have amended and attached the poster
as per your instructions.

Regards, David.

This is worse than the other one. can you make it so it shows the whole photo of Missy and
delete the stupid text that says missing missy off it? I just want it to say
Lost.

yeah can you do the poster or not? I just want a photo and the word lost and the telephone number
and when and where she was lost and her name. Not like a movie poster or
anything stupid. I have to leave early today. If it was your cat I would help
you. Thanks.

Dear Shannon,

I don’t have a cat.
I once agreed to look after a friend’s cat for a week but after he dropped it
off at my apartment and explained the concept of kitty litter I backed out of our agreement. I have
attached the amended version of your poster as per your detailed
instructions.

Regards, David.

That’s not my cat. where did you get that picture from? That cat is orange. I gave you a
photo of my cat.

I know, but that
one is cute. As Missy has quite possibly met any one of several violent ends,
it is possible you might get a better cat out of this. If anybody calls and
says “I haven’t seen your orange cat but I did find a black and white
one with its hind legs run over by a car, do you want it?” you can
politely decline and save yourself a costly veterinarian bill.

Regards, David.

I didn’t say
there was a reward. I don’t have $2000 dollars. What did you even put
that there for? Apart from that it is perfect can you please remove the
reward bit. Thanks Shan.

Can you just please
take the reward bit off altogether? I have to leave in ten minutes and I
still have to make photocopies of it.
