I was writing a piece of copy for a client describing their business:
Me: So, what did you think of the piece I wrote for you?
Client: It’s no good. I don’t understand why you included all the information that you did.
Me: Oh! Your marketing officer told me what information I should include – my piece was based on their email. Did you see what they sent me?
Client: Yes. I saw it. They didn’t send you the right things.
Client: But I have to tell you, it’s a beautiful piece. You’ve done a wonderful job of writing it. It’s absolutely lovely. I just don’t like it.
