    work said he couldn't meet his deadline and he'd get it to DH "sometime tomorrow". Then the person who hired DH responded that DH would have to just submit his part on Saturday. DH had Friday night plans and we had Saturday plans. I'm just curious, is this something we have a right to be annoyed about , or is it normal for companies to assume freelancers will be available 24/7?
