The client here is an extended family member wants a pro-bono job done for their parent’s 50th anniversary. Parents dress up and I take some shots of them (pictures will be put in a special 50th-anniversary frame, but they don’t know that) and I upload and edit their photos.
Client: This looks nice, let’s print and frame them.
The pictures had to be printed in various sizes, but family member never tells me the size, so I printed standard size. Also, one of the pictures has an indoor light reflection in the background. I didn’t even notice it.
Client: This looks so cheap. What’s with that white thing in the back? Why didn’t you fix that?
Me: That’s the background lighting. I can edit that out.
Client: Look at the size! This isn’t going to fit.
Family member tries to fit the over-sized pictured in the small frame.
Client: This is dog s***! You don’t know how to do anything!
After some more curses and complaints, the client still took the pictures, cut them and put them in the frame. They fit like a glove.
Client: Oh, that looks perfect!
