You know what really grinds my gears? When the client inserts some incongruous slides in between your perfect slides, disrupting the optimized flow that you had spent hours working trying to attain.

It’s just slides

Don’t ever get emotional about work unless it affects your reviews. They’re paying you for a service. Get over it

What if the partner on the case is the one making direct edits on slides you have spent hours on and then the whole deck looks loco bc of it😢

Too many unnecessary big words for a Friday

Why do people have such a problem saying No?? If you are well reasoned and it's your deck, say No.

OP, I’m with you on this one. Sometimes, slides are just slides. But other times, they make a story and inserting one unnecessary slide in the middle kills the entire appeal.

End of day client owns it. You made some slides but if they want to splash some ugly slides in so be it. Happens a lot at my current client and they are ugllyyyyyyy

Hello 🐠, I have been on a project that I do not like, has absolutely obliterated my work life balance, and put me under a lot of stress.
