Vent like a deep-sea volcano 
J. got this link from The Presurfer and sent it along to me: Clientcopia, a collection of stupid client quotes.
There's no getting around it. At some point in your career, your patience will be tested with a client who is so clueless that you'll question your sanity, career choice, and the future of mankind.

You may have dealt with one already, one that just stuns you like a deer in headlights. Dumbfounded to utter anything but an "uhhh…".


Clientcopia was created to give you an escape. Take joy in knowing you are not alone.
There are 153 quotes as of right now, and you can submit your own. I contributed this one, from—of course—our designated Client From Hell:
We were typesetting a book for a client, and sent them a sample PDF of a typeset page. Client, in a panic: "This looks awful! The proportions are all wrong! It's the wrong size!"

Yes, that would be because they want a 9" x 6" book, but they printed the sample on 8½" x 11" paper.
There, I do kinda feel better now...

Yes, that's me.
