Cheryl is an artist, mainly oils and water paints, but does silks scarves and other items too. Her passion is cats and most of her paintings has a cat somewhere in the picture, and often she is too, depicted as a little girl with long blonde hair.
Her father is the second case study I did and he introduced me to Cheryl years ago. Periodically I do mail lists and mailouts for her, presentations on her artwork, media releases, brochures for her art shows, and so on. In these latter years she’s struggled with a health problem, resulting from an injury whilst teaching art, and I’ve had to type up a series of reports for her relating to her injuries and health.
However, she had to stop getting me to type her reports and I recently found out the reason why when she paid me a visit to do some other things for her. The ‘authorities’ handling her compensation claim told her that her reports were very professionally typed and as a result perhaps she could get a job as a receptionist or something? She told them she didn’t do the typing and that she had engaged someone, but they wouldn’t believe her. So both Cheryl and her specialist have taken to hand-writing on the documents I produced for her, with additional information, to drive the point home.
First time I’ve been told that I’ve done such a good job I could be jeopardising my client’s situation! KMT
