A company hired me to create a website for them. I accepted the job and they made an appointment to show me around and explain to me what they are doing and such. They gave me a brief tour of the office, but didn’t really give me any information about what they wanted. Before the client left me to work, I had to flag him down to ask a few basic questions.
Me: So what colors you want me to use?
Client: Well… I don’t know that’s why we hired you.
Me: Okay, which color is associated with the company?
Me: All right and what information do you want on your website?
Client: I don’t care! Just make me a website! Do whatever!
Me: Uh… Okay do you have some text for me to use on the website?
Client: I have this document. Do something with this, I guess.
The he walked away. I had a look at the document – it was a write-up about some property they’d just bought across town
Eventually I cobbled together some info from everyone else at the company, but it was like pulling teeth.
