I’m a designer who made the mistake of giving a client some computer advice once. This story takes place over two years since I had worked with that client.

Client:  Hey, how are you doing? You know, I seem to have a problem with my PC. I’ve tried everything, but it just isn’t working. No need for you to come here, I can bring it to you.

Me: You know, I’m busy at work, and I can’t really take a break.

Client:  Yes, but it won’t start! What am I supposed to do?

Me: Take it to a service.

Client:  No way! I’d have to pay for that!
