Does the client take Halloween too seriously or do we all just take ourselves too seriously?

When you say ‘unicorn’ do you mean a costumed client or a client who understands what reasonable requests look like, sees you as a partner and not a renter mule, and agrees that engagement scope is actually defined in a contract?

Because I’m kind of confused

At least your client has personality. Most of mine today had to be reminded it was Halloween. Be thankful my friend, you're working with humans with a pulse

I have a boss who constantly “throws me under the bus” in front of clients. When client doesn’t like our suggestion I usually present (that even my boss approved), my boss would say that it was my fault and we will go over it internally again. Every single time. I told her at times that this is puzzling because she also agreed upon what we will be presenting. I want to tell her to stop doing this. I don’t feel supported because the client now doesn’t have a good optics of me to work with. Tips?
