An email exchange I just had:
Client: The business card you designed is TERRIBLE. The background is bad, the fonts are ugly and the general layout is just unappealing. You have no sense of taste. We are paying you a lot of money but you give us this crap? I'm CCing the CEO on this so he knows what I think.
Me: I didn't make this design. Your CEO did. He just asked me to print it.
He didn't reply, but I wish I could have seen the look on his face when he got my response.
