My brother always comes to me when he needs graphic design work done. In the past, I used to do it for free because it’s my brother. These days he works in a medical office where the doctor is very good about paying in a timely fashion. However, my brother continues to have extremely high standards and a low tolerance for me being unable to read his mind.

Client: I need you to draw something for me.

Me: …Okay

Client: It doesn’t have to be fancy. Just a simple drawing. You can do it however you like.

At this point in the phone conversation I’m already wary. There are a million ways for me to approach this project, and there’s a high probability I will spend a lot of time tuning the picture to my brother’s specifications only to find out the doctor wanted something completely different. I decide to approach cautiously.

Me: What is this for?

Client: It doesn’t matter! Can you just do it? I’ll tell you later.

Me: Can you tell me now?

Client: Fine! You make things so difficult. The doctor is making a video clip. We have the audio file, so now we need visuals to make it a video file. 

Me: Okay, that’s really useful information for starting. How many images do you need me to make?

Client: Just one. We can’t simply take images from the internet because they’re copyrighted, but if you make it we can use it no problem.

Me: Wait, so you can’t just buy stock photos for this?

Client: I guess we could! 

Me: So are you going to go that way, then?

Client: Yes. 

Me: Cool.

Client: …You’re not a very good business person.
