Clients From Hell

Interests, Life

Me: ”I will create a login box on your website. Once someone registers and logs in, the website will recognize who the user is and provide relevant content.”

Client: ”That sounds great. However, instead of a login box I’d like to use biometrics to identify the user.”

Me: ”Not sure what you mean.”

Client: ”When someone visits the website, I want them to be able to put their hand on the monitor. The monitor will then scan their hand to confirm who they are. I think that would be a lot more engaging. How much extra would that functionality cost?”

Me: ”Several hundred million dollars.”

Client: Why are you being a wiseass? Can you do it or not?

Me: ”No. Sorry. That’s a little too advanced.”

Client: ”Fine. I’ll try another web designer.”

I’m not sure if this website makes me more excited to be getting more design work or scared of working with these kinds of clients. On one hand it seems like everybody needs design and logo work, on the other hand some of them seem to be insane.
