I saw it some time ago and it made my day

I’ve actually had a client want to put pets on sites with totally unrelated subject :D And not one but around 10, a whole zoo I tell you haha

Then another that felt that the design was to intuitive…

Then there was a guy they I quoted per page and he later asked if we could make one big page out of around 15 so he wouldn’t have to pay so much.

And I won’t even mentioned the type of clients that say everything is perfect just make a small change and you end up redoing the work

This reminds me of the redesign of the apple looking brochure that turned into microsoft by the time the client got through with “minor” changes. Wish I had that link still.

I’m sorry I’m desperate and you’re all awake so I’m just going to but in with a query,

I’ve just bought a lovely template – Delericon for WordPress 2.8. However my web hosting has WordPress 2.72. I can upgrade from the dashboard but only to WordPress 2.91

Do you think the template will work in a higher version of WordPress?

I have Wordpress 2.8.5 if you want me to zip it up and send to you. Otherwise not sure. Not really a big WP guru. =)

Hey, that has happened to me too xD

I did a great design, and then the client wants the menu to have a bigger font size, adding some “animated gifs” which animate the name of their company, etc… WHAT THE HELL \\?!?

Apparently, i’m too embarrassed to link that website :P I wont even link it in my portfolio, the money i got was just enough :D

I found this video on youtube – it’s both the funniest and the most frustrating thing I’ve watched in a long time :D
