ridiculous

I try not to post about work for obvious reasons, but sometimes I really can't stand our clients.

You know how adults in Charlie Brown cartoons sound like..."wah wah waaah wah wah waah wa waah"?

Well sometimes our clients ask us to do things and when I hear the request it sounds like "could you just look in your ass real quick and ask the top 7 magical fairies to come out and play Beethoven's 5th on my desk while wearing the latest fashions from Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers clothing line? And oh, I've heard about these things called iPods and I think it might be important for us to know more about them and how they're used. I need your feedback by the end of the day."

I get the same thing, but it's for internal teams. I also get the added "can you get us a working demo of that by noon so that we can incorporate it into our presentation for first thing tomorrow? How long have we known about this? Oh, about two weeks."

Yeah, I hear ya.

I am completely on-board with you sister. Except in my case, I have the fun of imagining what my client would look like in prison or in the unemployment line . . . as a result of them not taking my advice. I love reminding them -- okay, but, you know, lawyers don't go to jail. :-)
