Can't figure out some schedulers. Seem so nice. then you do the last minute shop for next to nothing, get it done, and never hear a word if it's accepted and I will be paid. Does that happen, and how can I avoid this problem?
Can't figure out some MSers. Sound so reliable. "Sure, I'll do it, without fail." Then reschedule it once because their dog was sick. Then ask to reschedule it a second time because they had an "emergency". Then flake out the third time. And if you ask other MSers if they are absolutely certain they will do it "or else", they get all offended. And oh, by the way, I didn't get any pay for all of the time I spent trying to schedule the first MSer that rescheduled 3 times because I only get paid once - and that is AFTER the shop is accepted. And those e-mails....I get THOUSANDS of e-mails from MSers for my 300 assignments. "Can I do it Thursday next week?" "Can I bring someone?" "If I'm 41, can I still do it even though the age limit says 40?" "I can't find this address." "If you bonus me $50 I'll do it." "I don't understand what I"m supposed to do." Do they want me to spend 30 hours a day just replying to say "no" and earn $2.50/hr?
