» Clients Are Stupid

In the high times of .com
I was freelancing at an agency, and they looked for new in-house designers.

They hired a bird who had no screen design expertise or portfolio and showed them a hand-drawn pen and paper animation of a horse shagging a woman during her interview as an example of her skills.

The web agency hired her. I asked for my cheque in advance.

» Grandparents

Once my sister was reading the Cosmopolitan in the garden...
... and read an article that children whose mothers had orgasms during conception are brighter than others. She then asked my mother if she had an orgasm when they made her and my grandmother interjected with "Orgasm, all these newfangled things! We didn't have those, otherwise we'd have had fewer children!"

» Clients Are Stupid

a client of ours
wanted to close their web site for two days to do the euro revamp. We did a holding page, with a logo, a sorry message and an email link. they claimed that people know them by the design of their navigation not their logo and asked us to put the navigation in, just without the links.

However, one of my junior developers topped that by starting to take out the hrefs of the links, rather than just doing a screenshot.

» How I Skive Off Work

If you work in IT
get used to reading grey or green on black. I spent the better part of a year chatting on IRC and my boss was sure I did a great job maintaining the server.
