HAHAHAHAHA!!Very good one!
Drawing a little is actually good when golfing too!
May I send this one to my own family and friends?awesome :=)
This is great. Although my mother now always asks if I've got an upcoming deadline / how busy I am whenever she calls during work hours :)
Man, that's what i've always wanted to have on the workroom door!Contragts & Thanks!
It should actually say "Dear Friends, family and neighbours - and to whomsoever it may concern -". I don't know about you fellow freelancers, but even my neighbours think I am unemployed. It's simply hilarious. When I see people all dressed up early morning, especially on a chilly winter morning, I feel privileged to be a freelancer.
Oh, God; it's sooooooooooooooo true.
Excellent point! Judy is often the go-to person for mid-day airport rides, although most friends and family do understand that we are full-time entrepreneurs and very, very busy. Actually, we work a lot more than we did when we were employed in-house. :)
This is great...I also get roped in for mid-day airport rides and the like... I'm learning to say no, though! :)
This is very true! It is hard to make people understand that I am not just relaxing at home and even when I am not translating, I am working! It is good to know that I am not alone in this sentiment.
Your cartoons are hilarious - because they're so true! (I work in translation, obviously.) The strangest part - I have a pet turtle...named Mina! You must be clairvoyant.
Great cartoon!Recently we talked about the topic in my curso de traducción.
This is hilarious!I love the light sarcasm and simple, brilliant humor of it =]It really is frustrating when others think we're not as busy just because we work from home!
Yes you are all waiting for my next assignment....bwahahaha!luv,Pam
I need a huge print of this, like a canvas or something to hang on my door, so that family, friends and flatmates stop knocking on the door with the usual: What are you doing? Can we have this in voicemail for the annoying phone calls of friends that assume that if they are bored they call you?
@All: Thanks for your comments! I sent this idea because I was sooooo frustrated!!! It seems that most of us have gone through the same thing over and over!@Sehdev: Ditto!! My neighbors have asked me for all sorts of favors... To walk their dogs, fetch the kids from school, receive packages, watch over their sick kids... The list is endless!! :)Ellie Monteiro
@Mox http://www.guerrillafreelancing.com/20-freelance-stereotypes/ - saw that link and thought of this post. Inspiration food, perhaps? Would love to see the clothing/hygiene/overworked stereotypes depicted!Love your blog!
Thanks a lot, Rose. Very good material for future strips.
Great! I just showed this to my husband...
Great! I will definitely print this out and put it on my door :) last thing I was asked is to wake up my neighbor's boyfriend because his alarm was broken! :D
Hey, I know Ellie! She used to be my own "Pam the PM". heh heh... OK, no, she was no Pam: she was a good PM. :-)
