Client 1: “I’m simply not comfortable with those letters, something is missing.”
Client 2: “Well, yes, the cross stroke is gone from the letter A.”
Client 1: “Yes, and that bothers me.”
Client 2: “Why?”
Client 1: (long pause) “I just don’t feel we are getting our money’s worth!”
The logo being discussed:
I got this email once from some lawyer in Nigeria and when I opened it and clicked the link, the same email was sent it to everyone in my contact list. I thought, hey, this is a pretty smart and simple marketing technique. When I send out this email to the 4,000 people, I want it to automatically forward to everyone in their contact list. Can you have this done for me by tomorrow?
Me: Hi, I’m just updating the copy for your form and was wondering if you meant to say ‘programs’ for the third question?
Client: NO. What I sent along was completely accurate, I wrote and edited it myself. Just copy it over exactly as it says, I’ll explain it nice and slowly for you.
Me: ‘Please indicate which pogroms you’ve attended?’
Client: Yeah, that should be programs.
A client hadn’t replied to my latest proof. I asked if he’d seen it yet, to which he replied:
"There are too many words. I don’t like to read that much (nor do I have the time), and frankly, I don’t think other people do either"
There were literally seven words on the proof.
Client: It says my username and password don’t match.
Me: Ok. Is the caps lock on?
Me: Are you sure? Because the password has to be in all lower case letters in order for it to work.
Client: I’m not stupid. The caps lock is not on. Just tell me how to fix my computer.
Me: Ok. Look right above the number pad on your keyboard. Are any of those lights lit?
Client: Yes, all of them, but that has nothing to do with the problem.
