This is a weird situation with small business CEO who outsourced one website project to me.

Me: “I’m finishing the project. Are you ready to discuss deployment details?”

Client: “Fantastic. When you finish, do you mind helping Peter with another project? And when you do that, I have a new web that needs to be done.”

Me: “Help with what? Who’s Peter? What project? I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

Client: “You are my employee now; I have a lot of work you must do.”

Me: “I am what? I don’t know where you got that, but I have also other clients.”

Client: “Do you also talk to them like this?”

I live in Belgium and am visiting my brother in Bratislava for a few days. For dinner, we go to a nice restaurant in a not-too-touristy area. When ordering our food, I ask the waiter which beers they have. I’m something of a beer lover so I love to sample as many of the local beers as possible when I’m abroad.

With a hint of pride, the waitress tells me, “We’ve got something special. We have [Belgian Abbey Beer I can buy in any supermarket at home].”

I ordered the wine.
