An error occurred due to some kind of data.
Client attempt to help me understand what went wrong.
I have a computer that is neither on nor off.
Client response to what was wrong with their website
Client: This is some great stuff. I can’t decide which graphic I prefer for the front though.
Me: I personally think the last one is the best. When you decide which graphic you prefer let me know so I can gather the images I need and build it.
He never tells me which graphic he prefers, and not responding to my emails and with the deadline 24 hours away, I go ahead and spend two hours in Photoshop building the one I thought was best. Then, three hours before the deadline…
Client: This isn’t the graphic I wanted! Where’s the other one?
Me: You never told me which graphic you liked and I thought the deadline couldn’t be pushed back.
Client: I wanted the other one.
Me: What other one? I made four different versions.
Client: The one before this one.
Me: There were three.
Client: Yes, one of those.
It seems like they’re still not primary colors. The darker yellow is OK, but the red could be readier, the orange orangier, etc.
Make the words fly!
Client: I have a potential gig for you.
Me: Great, what is it?
Client: I have a customer who is using [equipment brand I specialize in] and he needs some new programming. Can you let me know about how much you’d charge?
Me: Sure, get me drawings of their system or a list of the equipment they’re using and let me know what kind of content they are looking for and I’ll get you a quote.
Client: Oh, well we don’t really know what kind of equipment they have or how it’s laid out.
Me: Okay then. Can you tell me what kind of content they are looking for?
Client: Well we can’t determine what content they’ll need until we know what equipment they have. Can you just give me a quote based on how long you think it’ll take?
Me: Not until I have something to determine how long it’ll take.
I need a sexier, hipper grey.
I think it’s perfect, but I don’t know if its musicy enough.
Client reply after receiving a sketch for a poster of his album release show.
No pressure but this will be needed ASAP.
