    If it were me, I'd just write off all the work done so far as pro bono. Like several others already mentioned, I do all family work for free and if they want to pay me then that's an extra bonus.

    I had inlaws approach me for a logo and website. What a nightmare. They are a married professional couple and said "Of course we would pay you, $___ (an amount that barely covers 2 hours of work)...

      • After about 6 months of being engaged, I got on Skype and told Mrs. jld's parents that I had asked their daughter to marry me. It has stressed us out a lot due to her parents being very protective due to them wanting her to do whats best for her career (it's understandable, they have invested almost a million US dollars in her education).

        Fathers response: "GAAHHH".
        Mothers response: "Oh my god".

        Didn't start off on the right foot, but we both expected it. In the end it turned out better than we had hoped. After confirming that we're not love struck idiots and that we plan to do things properly and not rush any plans, that both our career paths follow a similar track (State side, Colorado) they expressed their approval and support.

        One step closer to making it big in the US with my fiancée.

        Now comes the truly stressful part; trying to find employment.

                Yeah, they're definitely more 'watchful' of their daughter than any other parents I have come across. But they understand I am a hard working fellow and have seen first hand that we have a healthy relationship. They were just worried that their daughter may get side-tracked in her career ambitions which is totally understandable. Their worry is compounded due to the fact that they are a few thousand miles away.

                She's an international student here in NZ. Studying Vet Science. It's around $250,000 just for tuition. Not to mention 6-7 years of living costs and Visa fees.

                • Wowzas. $250,000? I can't imagine having that kind of debt or spending that much on....anything.

                    Yeah. The scary thing though, it's cheaper here, and only 5yrs compared to studying in the States which is 8yrs.

                    That's why Massey, Palmerston North has such a high volume of American students.

                      congrats on the engagement jld!

                      as for me? not going to work all week! it's been nice not sitting at a desk 8.5 hours a day

                      "There's something about turning the pages of a book or magazine and the felling of rubbing your hands across the words."

                      This is my pen tool. There are many like it, but this one is MINE. My pen tool is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. My pen tool without me is useless. Without my pen tool, I am useless.

                      there is no grey area when it comes to 1 color logos.

                              Wow, I really just thought something was wrong with me but this seems to be my case. Caffeine doesn't do anything for me at all. I've had the strongest espresso imaginable (at least my friend was uncontrollably shaking) and no energy uptake just a droned out zombie like state but I still couldn't sleep.
                              In life there are a lot of grey areas; not in the conception phase of logo design.

                              When a person asks you to do work for nothing in return, they are saying to your face, "You're worthless but useful to me."

                              Shall is a direct command whereas the verb will is a prophecy of the future.
