Today.....
Client: I'm afraid your team is going to need to work through the holiday on this.
Me: why is that?
Client: I promised my boss I would give him the readout documents before the New Year.
Me: I will not make my team work through because you felt the urge to prove something to [name redacted]
Client: I won't pay for the work then
Me: I suggest that's not an appropriate response. We have all been targeting the same date in January to report out. We will hit that target and you will look like a rockstar.
Client: are you sure?
Me: absolutely - now go enjoy your skiing vacation you've booked to start tomorrow.

Sheesh!! 😡

Hey P1 Great job trying to fend them off but will your team have to work through the holidays still?
