My husband "volunteered" me to do some design work for a friend of his.
Not only did he not ask if a) I would like to do the project or b) if I had time to do the project, he told the guy that I would come up with four different concepts. For free. And there's no real chance that this might result in paid work at any point in the future. Really makes me want to put my heart and soul into the project . . .
Oh, who am I kidding? Even under duress and for no pay, I will still bust my buns to come up with something good. I'm too much of a control freak perfectionist not to.
