I was doing both the design and content updates for a client’s website. The client was launching a new product, similar to their current one, so the branding did not need to change much.
Client: We have decided to use a different designer for the launch of our new product website. We will still need you to maintain the content updates for us.
Me: OK. That’s fine, just have the designer send me the when they are ready.
Two weeks later I receive the template files from the designer. They are an exact copy of the one I used previously down to all the code comments and last update timestamp, the only thing that changed was the product image. There was a note attached that said “Sorry this took so long, the idiot who worked on this before didn’t know what they were doing, but I managed to fix most of it.”
