free tests... Nov 3, 2009

Thanks for sharing Boris! This was hilarious. I particularly liked the episode with the hairdresser:

(Lady) I want the highlights, but can only pay you for the trim.
(Hairdresser) So today we're only doing the trim?
(Lady) No, the highlights, but I will only pay for the trim.
(Hairdresser) So basically you want me to work for free?
(Lady) Oh no no! It's just a test, and if my husband likes it, I will roll the cost over to the next time when I need colour...

...which made me think of free test translations...
