In my mind, at some point in her meeting with Martin McGuinness, the Queen leaned forward and whispered into his ear “You’re a c***t”… I just think she’d be cool like that.
clientsfromhell: I asked a client where the payment was for the design and print-ready files I had sent him three weeks ago. His response? Client: We didn’t use it. Me: Our contract stipulates that I’m to be paid once I deliver the work, not whether you use the work. Client: There, I’ve emailed the files back to you. Now it’s like you never did the work. Me: Is it though?
We’re looking for a very Aryan design. But in a good way!– clientsfromhell
BBC Sport - Where are all the female Formula 1... →
Wait, it’s not a story about female F1 drivers that’s actually got some correct facts in it, is it? One that even points out the % of female candidates to draw from vs male for (currently) 24 seats?! Well, that’s a change! (Oh and no she’s not related to Paul Stoddart, in case you wondered like I did!)
BBC News - NeverSeconds school dinner blog... →
Can’t believe the COuncil had the right to ban her taking photos of school food! Martha began publishing photographs of her Lochgilphead Primary School lunches on 30 April. She gives each meal a ‘food-o-meter’ and health rating, and counts the number of mouthfuls it takes her to eat it. The schoolgirl has been using the blog to raise money for the Mary’s Meals charity and...
clientsfromhell: Client: Okay, I don’t remember the answer to my security questions. Me: That’s fine. You can just type whatever you want into the answer boxes three times, and then it will email you a password change request. Client: You want me to type what? Me: Just gibberish. It doesn’t matter; I just want you to get past the security questions. Client: Okay. How do you spell...
clientsfromhell: Client: We’d like you to design some labels for our new products. Me: What size are the labels? Client: They’re for three 250g jars Me: … Client: … Me: So, the dimensions of the labels are? Client: 250g. Me: … Client: Oh! Sorry! 250g probably doesn’t tell you enough. Me: Haha, yeah, I need to know length and width, or - Client: ’250g’ means ‘250 grams.’ Me: …
clientsfromhell: “Just because we can’t afford to create these things does not mean that we do not still do not want them. With that in mind, you should consider how much business you’ll lose if we have to pay.” — That’s just beyond obnoxious…
David Mitchell is a koala →
It’s the fact that there are many photos where he does indeed look like a koala that just makes this site priceless. (Sorry those who have no clue who David Mitchell is!)
clientsfromhell: “Top font is too flowery… think ‘ugh ugh man beef’ but also classy… ;-)” — See now I have a whole section of “ugh ugh” and another of “man beef”, but “ugh ugh man beef”, erm, not so much?!? ;P

clientsfromhell: “Could you also tart up the font?” — I’d so say this…
clientsfromhell: “You think it’s right to charge us for things just because we don’t have the ability to do them?” — Client response to my hourly design fee in an invoice.

Twitter Blog: Taking flight: #Twitterbird →
This bird is crafted purely from three sets of overlapping circles — similar to how your networks, interests and ideas connect and intersect with peers and friends. Whether soaring high above the earth to take in a broad view, or flocking with other birds to achieve a common purpose, a bird in flight is the ultimate representation of freedom, hope and limitless possibility. Oh Purhlease. ...

A convoy of self-driven cars has completed a 200km (125-mile) journey on a Spanish motorway, in the first public test of such vehicles. The cars were wirelessly linked to each other and “mimicked” a lead vehicle, driven by a professional driver. The so-called road train has been developed by Volvo. The firm is confident that they will be widely available in future. The project aims to...

clientsfromhell: Client: Can you send me this logo with no background? Me: Okay. Client: You sent me a PNG. Why? Me: PNGs are transparent. Client: Then what is this gray and white checkered background? I said no background. Me: That means it is transparent. It wont show up. Client: But I can see it….
