Request from a client who worked very closely in designing his website with me, yet still apparently thinks it was delivered from the sky by some omniscient web-stork.
Client: On our site, I’d like to add a map of all our locations nationwide.
Me: Ok, can you send me a database of all the addresses?
Client: I don’t have that. You’ll have to check the website for a list of addresses.
Me: There’s nothing like that on the website.
Client: Quick answer… you didn’t even check.
Me: I don’t need to check because I made the website, and I know nothing like that is on there.
Client: Ok, then see if you can contact the webmaster, they will know.
Me: I AM the webmaster… remember last year, when we made this site together, using information you provided?
Client: So you have no idea and you’re not even going to try to find out. Well, that’s very disappointing.
Me: How do you expect me to know the locations of your business when you, the boss, do not?
Client: That isn’t my job.
