Who is Crazier... Our Clients... Or Us?
Here are a couple of my favorite horror stories.
We were called on to provide client appreciation gifts for an event. Typically these products are a bit higher end, but this time the client decided they wanted to give away an inexpensive grocery tote bag. The budget was too low to do something nice, but we proceeded within their parameters. (Warning sign # 1.) All the samples we provided were determined to be too "cheap." Really? How much can you expect from a bag that's a dollar and change? Could four different quality suppliers all have provided inferior products? (Warning sign # 2! Trouble ahead!)
