I have a really, really needy new client based overseas.
I am just doing a small project for him and usually it would be probably a 5 to 10 hour job, nothing massive however he wants to speak on Skype all the time about the most minor things.
Skype call 1 - discussion to confirm the job - TICK
Skype call 2 - call back to clarify one further (simple point) - TICK
Skype call 3 - another quick chat about something he was thinking about - TICK
Now he is asking for a 4th Skype phone call which I said I don't have time to do as I am busy working on his project and if he wants to send a message feel free to email.
Honestly, he is lovely but the need for Skype chats is above my usual quota and it is doing my head in slightly.
My email to him has been clear - basically I work best over email, not Skype so please send me any info, messages and docs to support the project through here. I don't have time for Skypes all day and at a moment notice.
The message isn't really getting through.
Any other bright ideas - apart from shutting down my Skype account
