no more ms nice person

I have just had a VERY therapeutic conversation with Harry-the-illuminated-one. As both B and I suspected he might, he has come back to me with a host of fiddly changes, including, but not limited to, 'the text is very slightly wobbly and my publisher can't use it if it's wobbly'. I tried to explain that the quality of the text is down to the printer not the data file ... besides which, my printer is a pretty good ink-jet and the print quality is fine. I suspect that his publisher is a publisher-of-the-mind.

Anyway, it's not often that you get to say to a client things like "I no longer wish to work with you because your energies are inappropriate" or "I have done the work for you and whether or not you choose to pay me is your own karmic responsibility" :-) .

The end of the conversation went something like this:

Harry: "And another thing ...."

Ms No-More-Nice-Person: "No, Harry! No more 'another things' ...." [click]
On balance, I decided not to mention the masturbation issue.
