Client: I need you to delete this page from the website, we don’t need it anymore.
Me: OK, the page is deleted. I also deleted any links that referred to that page.
Client: Thanks, but now when I try to click the link to the page I get a message saying the page is not found?
Me: Yes, that’s correct, since the page was removed, it no longer exists, thus the message.
Client: So you’re saying I’m going to get this message from now on every time I click on the link? That’s unacceptable.
Me: Uhh, sorry, but I’m a bit confused. You asked for the page to be removed, and now you are concerned that the page is no longer there? Also, how are you even still clicking on this link? Is there a link pointing to the page that I forgot to remove from somewhere?
Client: Well, the link is right here, in the email I sent you earlier! I can still click on it! But now it takes me to some page that says “Page Not Found!”
I was too stunned to respond.
