After jacking my schedule around yesterday (interview scheduled with four hours’ notice, then cancelled it three hours later), he was late for our rescheduled interview this morning and kept me waiting 39 minutes. Journalists might be more accommodating in order to get an interview with a pseudo-celebrity, but I’m a designer. I charge by the hour. If I’m going to give up billable time to this little endeavor, there’s a limit to how much I’m willing to donate.
So I told him to suck it. Or rather, I told my awesome contact at the PR firm to tell Michael he can suck it. She was probably nice and said something like, “I’m afraid Robin doesn’t have time now to do the interview.”
But really, he can suck it.
