I break my own rules for trevo, so here’s NedPort
I’m an in-house designer for an office product manufacturer. We offer custom marketing materials for our wholesalers. This exchange took place after creating a double-sided print flyer…
Me: Attached is a PDF of the final draft of your flyer. Please look it over one last time. If everything is as it should be, please give me final approval to print.
Client: Everything is right, but can I have an HTML?
Me: I’m not sure what you mean. This is a print flyer. Why do you need code?
Client: What don’t you understand? I want an HTML. I thought you were a designer?
Me: I think you may be asking for the wrong thing. Can you explain what you plan to use the flyer for? Can you put me in touch with your marketing or web department?
Client: I’m most certainly not asking for the wrong thing! I know I need an HTML. I want to put a picture in my email. It should only take you one minute to make an HTML. Why don’t you know how to do this?
Me: I think what you’re looking for is an image file of the flyer. I took some screenshots of the PDF for you, in .jpeg format.
Client: Finally, was that so hard? Also, you messed up the phone number, so please fix the flyer. Now you can print 100.
The number was identical to the one she had provided. When I asked for the correct number, she resent the initial resources, which still featured the incorrect phone number.
I responded by pointing this out. She told me to check the resources she had resent, which, again, featured the same incorrect number. After a few more back and forth communications like this, she eventually approved the flyer with that number - after berating me for wasting a week’s time.
I want (finish to) read books, and write fanfics, and RP, and play games.
I also want to improve my English and learn German. And make memos, and make guides to help leaners in Portuguese.

Helping a neighbor, volunteering, or donating goods and services results in a “helper’s high” and research shows that those who do this live longer and get more health benefits from this than exercising four times a week.
