I feel extreme, overwhelming contempt against my client who has been extremely unhelpful in specifying how he would like the order delivered. It's a web site I have to deliver. We've agreed not to demand financial sanctions from each other - the mutual damage done balances out, approximately. Perhaps I've suffered more directly, and he more indirectly. Nasty shit anyhow.
He has a view of himself as benevolent and reasonable person, which seems to have motivated him to offer some shit he considers "good deals": work for 30eur/hour, but he'll probably initially refuse to accept 2/3 of my work, trying to make me work 3 hours for the price of one. Giving "good recommendations" for his business partners, probably with a hint that I'm a sucker to be abused financially.
At least he has the self-image of benevolence, which makes him try to co-operate (unskillfully).
Oh life could not suck any more. I have to work a week for free (hiring attorney would cost more) and I have to pamper for his feelings as well. Life could absolutely not be any more insane.
My feelings of justice would have me call it quits and have him bankrupted. (the two are not related, I can't cause him that much financial harm by quitting from the deal).
So, he won. Oh my fucking god. I'm mad both because loosing yet a week of my time, which I could do to work in another project with a better pay. I could use this time building a good reputation for a good client instead of this one. Still I'm wasting 45 minutes in here ranting about a case I can't do nothing about.
I have been beaten, and I've beaten myself because of it to the point of sickness. I'll probably be able to resume working at the point when I feel nothing.
