“The client is always right.” Those of us who’ve worked in the service industry have probably understood that these words are far from being true. Not only do some visitors, customers, and even bosses exhaust and irk their workers, they also often make them doubt their own professional skills. That’s why it’s no surprise that there are so many stories on this topic that can be found on the internet and each of them is more interesting than the last.
We at Bright Side admire the power of these specialists who have to listen to weird complaints from clients or bosses on a regular basis.
Once I got an order for a translation. After having studied the document, I named the price — $X USD for one page that consists of 1,800 characters, including spaces (those who don’t work in this sphere: there are other methods of measuring text volume, but traditionally it’s counted the way I described). The client agreed and the work started.
