Off topic: Funny site - clients from hell
Thread poster: Jennifer Gordon Taylor
A designer friend sent me a link to this site, and it is actually for designers. However, as freelancers, we can definitely sympathise!
thanks for sharing Jennifer.
"But I really love your style, I don’t think I’ll get that from a beginner. Can you recommend someone who does work just like yours but for the price I’m offering to pay?"

I enjoyed reading a lot of those.
My fave is:
Client: ”…and I’d like to offer the website in Italian.”
Me: ”Are we going to be offering services in Italy?”
Client: “No. But it will make us look more professional and sophisticated. People will think that we’re Italian and that our food is good.”
Thanks for posting the link.

I'm currently working on a 21 pages long bank account activity report, so this fun just came in time.

Had a great laugh, thanks for sharing.
We should compile the same gem list by translation clients. I could contribute with quite a few from my own collection.

Reading that site reminds me why I left advertising as soon as I could.
