The Hole, Much Like His Brain, Is Too Small

, , , | Right | October 29, 2021

A couple of months ago, a client asked me to put an image on his website that he scanned from an 8″ x 10″ photo. After I added it to the site:

Client: “The picture isn’t the size I sent you!”

Me: “The width of a web page and the images on it will change depending on the size of the device it’s viewed on.”

He didn’t understand, so I told him:

Me: “Pretend the website is a window and a three-inch-wide cell phone is the open hole waiting for the window.”

His solution?

Client: “Then you make the hole bigger!”

Me: “You can’t change the size of a cell phone.”

Client: “You’re the web designer; just make it work!”

Well, I couldn’t make it work, so he hired someone else who couldn’t make it work, either, because his new website was up for a week and now it’s gone. I think he’s searching for a magician, not a web designer!
