I’m working with a city government. We spent weeks in big meetings mapping out goals for a new website.
I finished the site and got paid. BUT, it took over a year for them to make up their mind to take it live.
Turns out they wanted to implement things like fully responsive dynamic content, useful apps, etc – all things I told them they needed in the first place but which they opted not to include.
Once the site finally went live, they asked me to start from scratch.
Twist ending though: they’re going to pay me to do it again! So I guess maybe they’re their own client from hell?
