Client: “On that map of Maryland graphic… can you get rid of that jaggy thing? My client doesn’t like that.”

Me: “Uhh, that’s the Chesapeake Bay.”

Client: “I don’t think it’s part of Maryland, plus it’s annoying so delete it.”

Me: “Yeah, it’s definitely part of Maryland.”

Client: “I still don’t think so… I’m googling it right now, hold on.”

[silence]

"OK, just show the state boundary."

Me: "Uhh, the Chesapeake Bay DEFINES part of the state’s boundary. I can’t delete a body of water."

Client: “Just fill it in then.”
