Client: Why have you taken my website down? I demand you put it back immediately!
Me: You didn’t pay your January invoice, and although I explained very clearly the consequences of that non-payment, you still refused, so the website is now offline.
Client: But it’s February now, so put it back online at once.
Me: Well, you are refusing to pay the February invoice too, so I’m afraid that’s not possible.
Client: Are we going to go through this charade every month?
Me: I honestly hope not.
