I was working as a sound designer when my client pulled me aside to ask about some last minute changes.
Client: I need you to change the doorbell.
Me: What seems to be the problem with it?
Client: It’s the wrong kind of doorbell.
Me: What is the right kind of doorbell?
Client: One that goes ding.
Me: Does this one not ding?
Client: It dings, but it’s the wrong kind of ding. I need it to go ding.
Me: You need it to go ding, but not ding?
Me: I just said the same word twice.
Client: No, you didn’t! The first one was different! That’s what I want.
