To illustrate that the program includes breakfast, the client wanted an icon of a coffee mug in the corner. To further emphasize that it includes breakfast, she wanted a bagel to go with her coffee.
Client: I’m sending you the bagel I want next to the coffee.
She sends a word doc with an actual photo of a bagel.
Me: We can’t put a photo next to an icon. I’ll find a similar icon of a bagel for you.
Client: Just show it to me with this, please.
I send it.
Me: I’m not confident that this is going to work well; we can’t put a real bagel next to a very fake coffee.
Client: It would if you would actually put the bagel on the plate together with the coffee! God!
