I responded to an ad online for an illustrator, They had supplied some sample art and I thought I was the perfect match because I had done very similar work in the past. I contacted the client and sent a link to my portfolio.

Client: Looks nice, but I am not sure it would fit our project - we’re are looking for a CG artist. 

Me: Oh! I actually do produce all my art digitally. Do you mean you’re looking for a modeler/3D render artist then? I was under the impression it was a 2D project.

Client: Yes it is. CG means computer graphics, it doesn’t have to mean 3D. How do you not know that? 

Me: I do know that - but a lot of people misuse it to mean 3D modelling. When you thought I didn’t fit your project I thought that’s what you meant. 

Client: I can’t believe you - a digital artist - don’t know what CG actually means! 

He then sent me a link to one of those “let-me-google-that-for-you” engines.

Nope. Thanked them for their time and dropped contact.
