Years ago, whilst working at a print & design firm.
Client: Our friend is getting married so we want to prank him by giving him a fake season ticket for Birmingham football club, can you make that for us?
Me: (not being born yesterday) Seeing as that would be illegal, We would be uncomfortable doing that. Sorry.
Client: Nah mate it’s fine, it’s not illegal we just want to prank him with a fake ticket that simply LOOKS like a genuine season ticket!
Me: (realizing they weren’t likely to back down quickly) We would still be unwilling to do this. Tell you what though, if you can provide us with written confirmation from Birmingham FC (and whoever else needs to provide permission), stating that they approve you doing this, then we would be more than happy to help.
Client: Bruv! It’s for a prank for f***’s sake! Are you going to do it or not??!
Me: As I said before, we will be happy to help but ONLY with written permission from Birmingham FC and any other affiliates that need to provide permission.
Surprisingly, the client never came back. Guess they had trouble getting that permission through!
