Have you ever had a client that had you needing therapy? Well, Client Horror Stories works pretty much like that, only bringing coffee or drinks is encouraged.
No matter your work field or industry, problematic (not to say obnoxious) clients are everywhere. Unless you are a lonely tormented poet, and sometimes even in those cases too, you’ll always have to work with people and, more specifically, with clients.
It’d be very naive to think that every single person that we are going to run into through our lives will be as nice and smart as we’d like them to be, but when we are talking about clients, the problem can (and will) get much bigger. Given that they supposedly hired you, and that you are trying to give them the best results you can, expectations, deadlines, and even diplomacy, among others, take huge relevance in the relationship you are trying to build.
Given this situation, it’s very safe to say that every person that has a client has, at least once, had to deal with an awful one. If this is your case, then you are more than welcome to come and share the complete detailed story with us.
Prepare your narrative (and make it as gripping and dramatic as possible), make sure you can list the lessons you learned and what you’d do differently now, and drop us a line!
