A friend of a friend was recommended my services to discuss a project they had in mind. It took a bit of cajoling to get them to meet, and only then, it was only when I offered to sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) in order to protect their idea.
Client: I’m sure (mutual friend) told you enough about me that you know better than to steal my idea anyways.
Me: Haha, yeah, he mentioned you were a lawyer.
Client: Oh, I meant how good I am with a crossbow.
He did not laugh at this.
