Just my luck

Got a call on my cell phone today in regards to a Craig’s list ad I responded to looking for Voice overs. My email enquiry always mentions that I live in Seattle to weed out those who want locals only. The conversation went like this:

Client: Hi, we’re interested in using your services for some VO work

Me: Great! Can you tell me a little about your project?

Client: Sure <goes on to talk about the project and the rate, which is way low>

Me: OK, so does this include mixing, editing and sweetening or do you just want the raw files?

Client: Well, it starts off with an interview. you come in to our office is Tucson and talk to us and we figure out….

Me: Hang on one second, I don’t mean to interrupt.

Client: No problem

(beat)

Me: Tucson?

Client: Yes.

Me: You realize I live in Seattle right?

Non-client: Oh. No, I didn’t know that. I guess we won’t be able to use you then. Sorry for wasting your time.

Me: No Problem.

 

Argh!!!
