Just got off a project status call with a client who was for sure tipsy…Tuesday happy hour I guess. Got them to agree to some next steps I wasn't expecting- win for me!

I had a start-up client who did weekly Thursday happy hours and for some reason insisted on scheduling status calls early Friday morning. We had more than a few obviously hungover discussions with them. Their business did eventually go under and none of us were surpised.

Wow good for you but yikes- who's drinking that much on a Tuesday and taking work calls? Seems unprofessional on their part.

I love when the client argues during a status meeting they reviewed more work then reflected but they use descriptive phases like "a whole bunch" or "like at least 10 or 15"....no bitch you didn't.

Feeling more unqualified than as when I'm introduced as a SME to a new client.
