A client is worried that someone will steal their logo from their website. They need us to protect the logo somehow and are willing to pay to have the right mouse button disabled.
Client: Our site has been hacked! There are little orange boxes on it!
Me: Yes, those indicate RSS feeds. You’ll see them on all major sites.
Client: Well, we should remove them, they look like hacking.
My client was an outdoor events company and upon seeing a competitor using a blue sky in their advertising, emailed me telling me to call this company and let them know that they had to change the colour of the sky in their ads,”because we own copyright of blue skies in this country so no-one else can use them”.
Client: We have to put graphic boards together for the presentation…should we use Times New Roman or Arial?
Client: You see where you have a full stop at the end of the first sentence?
Client: Can you change it to a comma?
Me: Er, well I can, but you should put a full stop at the end of a sentence.
Client: Oh, that grammar stuff is very old fashioned.
CLIENT: “We LOVE what you’ve created. The only change we would like to see, is on the second video. Can you remove the music and just make it so we can slide through the photos at our own pace, that way we can talk through them?”
ME: “Yes, that’s possible. It’s called a Power Point.”
Client: We are not moving forward with the project, the shopping cart doesn’t meet our needs.
Me: Ok there is still a balance due on the project that needs to be paid.
Client: We don’t see it that way, so we aren’t going to pay.
Me: Completed work does need to be paid for.
Client: Again, we don’t see it that way.
