Client: I’m not paying for your work
Me: Is there a reason?
Client: I just don’t want to pay.
Me: Well, you have to pay for my work, even if you don’t use it. You agreed to a contract.
Client: What are you going to do if I don’t pay?
Me: I’ll be forced to get my solicitor involved
Client: Oh… I don’t like the sounds of that. How much will it cost to make this go away?
Me: Roughly the same price as my unpaid fee.
Client: I don’t think of our company as a brand.
Me: Well, we’re providing an organized service to a wide client base under a singular banner. The company is absolutely a brand.
Client: I don’t know… I think of companies like Nikon and Canon as a brand. They put their names on things. What do we put our name on? I just don’t think we’re a brand.
Me: What if I made you a t-shirt with the company name on it?
Client: Well, that would change everything.
This shit is the snizzle
Client: The logo’s good, except… that circle doesn’t look like it’s right side up.
Me: Excuse me?
Client: Yeah. See, the top of the circle is at a 45 degree angle. Our visitors won’t like that.
Me: But… It’s a circle. Circles don’t have tops and bottoms; they’re circles.
Client: If you say so, but if my site doesn’t get as many visitors as it should, I’ll see you in court.
Best reasoning I’ve ever heard…
I’ve been in committees, this shit is gold.
