    So a buddy of mine has been getting the runaround from a provider at Freelancer - after displaying much understanding following multiple delays and deadlines missed, he finally sends an aggressive email threatening to cancel the project and leave nasty feedback if some immediate progress is not made...

    Which elicits the following response:


    Sorry for that. I had a horse accident on monday.
    My legs was very painful. It's better today.
    I work on your project today and hope to be able to complete it for tonight or tommorow.

    i think it is fair for the buyer to cancel the work if you guys can't do it.

    One of the funniest things I ever seen was on a horse ranch, a group of us were all riding the horses and this 350 pound girl kept spurring this poor horse in the sides so after getting fed up with this behemoth, the horse purposely starts trotting towards this huge low lying tree limb which caused the fat girl to fly backwards into a giant mud puddle. I just wish I had a camera so I could have put it on You tube. :laugh:
