TW: The swears. Here is the partial text of an email I **almost** just sent. It's still sitting on my desktop, mocking me.

[Redacted],

You emailed me at 4:45pm for changes on work req'd, per your email, early next AM. I realize there are challenges working with the management's schedule(s) at [redacted] but all work due in under twelve hours entirely made up of non-business hours is something most agencies would not find acceptable. These changes on their own are not a problem, but this pattern of "hurry up and wait" absolutely is. This issue has come up before, which is why I am CC'ing [redacted].

JEEBUS. I have never been so pissed in regards to someone I've worked with. IT IS SO FUCKING DISRESPECTFUL OF MY TIME. What do they think I do, sit around all day waiting for them to email me? Do these wankers think they're my only fucking client? I can't raise my rates on this one because I'm being sub-contracted by an agency, but FUCKFUCKFUCKSOANGRY.

This is aggravated by the fact that everyone thinks their account is sooo damned important because the client's ownership is super FAMOUSED and shit and on fucking TV. And it's especially hard for me because I have friends in the company and I like them. But this marketing agency they work with — which, fuck, I DO NOT KNOW WHAT THESE GUYS DO BECAUSE HEELLLOOO THE CLIENT HAS AN INTERNAL MARKETING DEPARTMENT — is so utterly disorganized.
