Me: “The layout is mostly complete, we just need the ‘Please join us’ pitch for the top of page two. I’ve put some nonsense, corporate mumbo jumbo placeholder text there for the time being.”

Client: “Hmm, the ‘Please join us’ on the second page has a concluding sentence that is difficult to understand and is not needed. Could you maybe change ‘Please Join us for a two day event that showcases the interrelation of system and subsystem technologies while mandating staff-meeting-level attention to possible bidirectional logical approaches. Based on integral subsystem considerations, the fully integrated program requires considerable analysis and trade-off studies,’  to just ‘Please join us for a two day event that showcases the interrelation of system and subsystem technologies while mandating staff-meeting-level attention to possible bidirectional logical approaches.’ It just sounds better that way.”

Me: “Seriously?”
