Clients From Hell


Asking me to outsource

A web designer wrote to me asking if I wanted to outsource some work to them. Really now. But ok, maybe I can consider it. So where’s your portfolio? Erm, no portfolio. Really? Then what the fuck are you writing to me for? I mean its not necessary to have a portfolio of commercial work – there MUST be something you did for a friend or for your own website / blog no? So he says that all he’s worked on are company projects – the current company that employs him. So I said, fair enough – show me some of that stuff. The reply, “I’m in HR, I don’t think it is ethical to share company projects with you.”

    Hah! That’s incredible, we recently posted a job offer searching for XHTML/CSS specialists, and were contacted by someone who claimed to have extensive experience and knowledge but… no URL to show!
    What are some people thinking…?

    By the way, nice touch, that tiny little smile at the top of your page.
