What's the worst lie you've ever told a client?

That year, I told mine that we have to pay $100 for a GitHub repository to store the code and keep it safe from bugs...

I am still laughing at myself 😂😂.

    But why? Is the IT salary so low, you have to lie for a hundred dollars?

    I admit in my freelance days I did once or twice deploy an untested or broken feature to get an advance payment, but it got fixed in a matter of days and no one ever noticed. But taking money for non-existing costs? That's just wrong.

    The few lies ever told to clients were to extend due date. Never ever tried to rip them off with their money.

    You're right...to think of it, GitHub must be the most infected place in need of an army of Duck Brigades armed with RAID!

    We once told our client that the product is going to be finished on time... The project is now months behind schedule.
