Genuinely, at least half of all clients are like this. At least initially when you’re getting going. I’m an old timer now so: 1. My clients are awesome. 2. I can usually spot a problem client a mile off and get rid of them before they’re an issue.

Fair enough! And thank you! It's a fair criticism and we'll keep it in mind going forward.

Five *minutes*? I can't even finish an email telling them how insane that request is in five minutes.

Monday reminder: Imposter Syndrome is experienced by people who are skilled enough to know what they don't know. If you feel like an imposter you're doing it right.

Absolutely you're right! However, if the person they were communicating with DID NOT have synesthesia then this would be quite frustrating to receive as direction. I think this story communicates that frustration rather than making fun of someone for seeing pink.

Genuine question, how often do designers deal with clients like this? The very few times I took illustration commissions I had nothing but headaches with people who didn't read my TOS and were highly demanding/ micromanaging in general. Seemed like these careers weren't worth it.

Aw, sorry to hear it! Freelancing is largely about persistence in outreach, though. Also, if you're comfortable doing it, consider reaching out to the client to see what nudged them that way - maybe it's something you can address going forward!

This is THE WORST behavior from a client I've seen in a long time (and I've seen a lot!)

FOXTROT! That's a blast from the past. Been awhile since I've read it. Maybe I should... "Amend" that.

This is like taking a car to the mechanic and not paying for it because the car still looks the same.

In my old dry cleaning shop: Me: that'll be 9.99 Cust: you didn't get all the stains out! Me: yes, I told you it wouldn't be possible to Cust: well I'm not paying! Me: well good luck getting your suit back Cust: you can't do that! I'll call the police! Me: I'll call them for you!

This is like the asshole who goes into an art gallery and says their 5-year old could do the painting on display.
