Client: I was thinking, could we get gold staples for the program?
I check with the printer.
Me: No, sorry, it’s not going to be possible. They can only do silver staples.
Client: Oh, that’s alright. What do you think about slipping some wax paper under each staple and coloring them gold?
Me: For 400 programs?
Me: For tomorrow?
Me: Will I be getting paid for the time?
Client: No, of course not – that’s only, like, a hundred staples.
