Classic, and very funny. I especially like the 'I have to pay every time you do work?' LOL.

Reminded me of a couple Dilberts where he says something like "I'd like to kick off the project by assigning blame for its eventual failure."

and

"My job is to create an environment where employees feel safe taking risks. My other job is punishing employees who make any kind of mistake."

I just watched the ESOcast about this last night. Pretty neat, although the fact that it evolved from a dwarf galaxy, which was a building block for the Milky Way, it isn't "really" extragalactic, but neat nonetheless.

You Made The Business Owner Cry

Project Manager: “We need to talk, you made Sandra (owner of business) cry.”
Me: “I’m really sorry, was it something I said?”
Project Manager: “You said that our logo was dated and old. You even said that it was silly. She’s devastated. I don’t think we’re going to be able to work together.”
[The logo was a line of tools, with googly eyes and Micky Mouse hands, dancing. Needless to say, I lost the contract - but I didn’t really mind.]

-------------

Always Trying To Do Better...

After advising a client to condense his top navigation links from run-on sentences to a more precise choice of words:

Client: “You know, I was a contractor years ago… and you remind me of a finish carpenter I once worked with.”
Me: “How so?”
Client: “He was always trying to do better than he had to, regardless of what I told him. Just trust me.”
Me: “I just always do the best I can.”
Client: “Yeah. That’s your problem.
[Pause]
Don’t worry, you’ll learn.”

-------------

"Can’t you just take shittier pictures for a discount?"

-------------

"You mean every time you do work for us, you charge us?"

-------------

"I want you to design me something that will make people horny when they look at it."

-------------

Client: “So here’s the deal: my company has just given me $7,000 to spend on this project, but since you only charged us $3500, why don’t you just write me a receipt for $7,000 and I’ll give you back the difference and manage the rest of the money myself.”
Me: “I don’t know, that doesn’t seem right. Is there anyway I can deal with your employer personally?”
Client: “Fuck you! Are you threatening me?”

-------------

"You did such a great job that I am going to refer you some business. Contact my friend about some work. Oh, she is broke so don’t try to sell her a bunch of stuff."

Somehow I'd still take him more seriously as a candidate than Palin.
