The Love Bug
[Current Mood |sadsad]

I designed a website for a local charity a while back, and I've been calling for a meeting to get things updated and provide a method by which they can update the content of the website themselves.

I find out today that for the last 3 months, they have been in contact with the company I work for, asking them to build them a new site, saying the existing one was "stale" and "we have no control over it's update". They have not mentioned any of this to me... if they had, I would have done something about it.

They've gone completely behind my back about this, and I am totally gutted that they haven't even had the decency to let me know what they're doing.

The thing that really gets to me, is that some of my work colleagues knew about this!!

Dave: what site is this?
So they told your company and not you. Nor did people from your work tell you either? Well, I would be seriously insulted by that and I would think twice about redoing the site for them if they don't have the deciency of asking me directly. You did the website originally F.O.C.???

Do they have a lot of info about events etc. that needs updating. If so, I know a good freebie program that can help with that! It's a blogger program that I use on a friend's website (you can stick things AHEAD of time).

I hate when people complain about things you do for them, then have the nerve to complain about it to someone else. Ungrateful.

man I hate that. If i do websites for anyone and they dont like it or have a problem with it I hope they come to me and explain it to me so I can do it better if they want me too. But going behind your back like that and your ex worker friends too, man thats just cold.....

I'd seriously think about doing anything for them again
