How do I put this? — I have asked you to use the Pantone 032U color, and it is not what I see on my screen! — You'll always want to keep prepared clients around because they are easy to deal with and are a quick source of cash, due to the lack of extra work that has to be done — Clients can make you feel like a Pizza delivery man — The focal point of your graphic designing business IS the Client — I love pizza — Anyone?
