how much alcohol do you drink to put up with strange clients?

Sometimes people just boggle my mind.

Some of the things I have had happen from paying clients (as opposed to things you would expect from trolls on a forum):

– I ask for clarification because their email didn’t make sense and they just FWD me a copy of the email again. Guess what? It still doesn’t make sense.

– Changing mid-paragraph from normal grammar and punctuation to all caps and no grammar or punctuation. And this person wasn’t even pissed off at me so it’s not like they were yelling. They just randomly switched from normal typing TO ALL CAPS WITH TYPOES IN TEH MIDDLE OF THE SENTENCE AND NO PUNCTUATION AT THE END

– Sending payment and then never contacting me again. No response to updates, no response to questions, no followup when the project is over. Not even a thank you or an acknowledgement.

– Asking questions about the service after they’ve already paid and work has begun. That’s like me going to the dealer, buying a car, and then two weeks later calling the dealership to ask if it has leather seats and what kind of engine it has.

You got paid, why would that drive you crazy? Hell, the ones that are late paying want the most from you.

I swear to god I had someone send me $10k for a script I had written and used myself. They asked for a few minor changes, 3 days later, they’re gone. Never to be heard from again.

Strange, though required no drinking.
