Stuxnet49596274dWait did you actually tell them this? If so, bad ass man.
JMoodyFWD5046274d@jhh2450 Yeah I told him this. I don't kiss a client's ass. If they're being an asshole and it's the wrong day, I'll dump them. I got into this to be my own boss, so I'm certainly not gonna let someone who's paying me think it's okay to be an asshole.
py2js3903274dYou have said : Don't fuck with me I am not everyone
JMoodyFWD5046273dUPDATE (just got off phone call with client)
Client: I just got the money back. Can you just suck it up and do this work for me? It was difficult enough finding you, and I can't afford trying to find and vet another developer.
Me: Sure, I can "suck it up", but the price just went up by 20%. If you would have apologized, I would have let bygones be bygones, but the fact you just don't get it is going to cost you if you want to continue doing business. Take it or leave it.
Client: Fuck that and fuck you! [hangs up]
I take it that's a no?
DevKev147273dWtf. Well played sir, well played
CapnHammered158273d@JMoodyFWD unrelated to your rant, but I just nosed at your profile and you have Phalcon listed and I've been looking into it lately. What's it like to work with?
Also kudos on your attitude with clients. I've had clients like this in the past and it's always better to drop them. Some people just aren't worth the money they can pay you.
Brolls3222273dClients tend to forget that you’re a business too. Do they treat their other trading partners this way? I doubt it.
They seem to think because you’re a person doing a thing for money they can treat you like shit.
Brolls3222273dOn a related note. I got in trouble at a previous perm role all the time for my communication.
I had this dickwad person at another company trying to pin an issue on us, and reckoned it was because we’d switched to hitting their https endpoint. I told them it was “irrelevant”
To which I was gifted the “I’m the customer, nothing is irrelevant and I don’t like your tone” email with my boss cc’d.
We ended up having to host them at some bullshit peace offering day, where the two faced bastard reckoned it was just a heated conversation and we can all agree that acting with respect and understanding a good idea.
Guess what the cunt proceeded to do a few days later?
JMoodyFWD5046273d@CapnHammered Thanks! Phalcon is pretty fun actually! I built a full CMS for a client out of it and to say the performance is fast is a huge understatement. It definite has it's quirks at times with really advanced things, but overall it's really clean to work with and I'm kinda digging using Volt as a templating engine.
Gerrymandered7558268dThere should be a dev blacklist for clients. Why isn’t that made yet?
Noob6655267dWhen I was a LAMP stack freelancer a long time ago that was exactly the attitude I approached my clients with.
You (client) are not my employer.
You desire my service and pay me money for it.
You know nothing.
You act disrespectful - I explain to you why you are a waste of oxygen and cut out of the deal (as was stated in the contract by the way).
These peaces of shit need to be shown how worthless they are.
segfault0xff3863256dThat client obviously isn't familiar with the concept of a product owner.
