I was having lunch with my client, David, the other day at a place with free refills. Nothing fancy but good food. But one of the things they had was narrow tables.
We were having a good conversation and noticed that my drink was empty. I was getting up to get a refill when David said, “Hey, that’s my drink.”
Sure enough, my drink was sitting to my left and was still full. He and I had been drinking from the same straw. And he has small kids who are always getting sick. So far I’m okay.
I ended up refilling his drink for him and got a new straw and lid. It was a major goof but was we had a laugh. Had it been with a new client it may have been awkward but I’d been doing work for him for six years and have helped him grow his business from $50K per year to over a million this past year.
I’d like to hear about funny/awkward times you’ve had with your client. You can do so in the comment box below.
If you’ve ever designed a website or been a client who had a website designed, maybe you can relate to this one — How a Web Design Goes Straight to Hell – The Oatmeal.
How much time do you spend on Facebook when you’re at home? How about work?

I have a friend who is paranoid about germs, especially when it comes to things in the bathroom. How are the bathrooms at your place of work? Check out this video from Rhett and Link:
My friend Craig used this message for his voicemail:
“Hi, this is Craig. I waited here as long as I could for your call. Leave a message and I’ll get back with you soon. I know that each day you have a choice of many phone numbers and I appreciate you choosing mine. Have a great day.”
Have you heard a funny one? Let me know.
