Coping with client stupidity

June 7, 2006

It’s hard dealing with clients.  By definition, they are stupid, arrogant, stubborn, clueless and have an IQ in negative numbers.

One of the agencies we deal with has a large corporate client whose homepage now looks like a cheap porn site or a dumbass kid’s myspace profile it has so many flashing animations.  We tried to explain to them that having four simultaneous animating elements on a page wasn’t a good idea, but they didn’t want to know.

Can’t remember what their exact response was, but it was something like this

“I need more pesshht peesshht chuttt chutt papapapa on this animation”

How do you argue with that?  You don’t. Give them more pesshht peesshht chuttt chutt papapapa dammit.  Haven’t you heard the client is always right?

Or what do you say when they say things like “Whatever you do, don’t put our phone number on the contact page”. Umm, it’s a contact page.

For more client stupidness, check out Clientcopia.  It has a great selection.
