Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Hate: I also don't like how some people under value our work, but I also can't stand clients that are completely clueless about what we do, how we do it, or why we do it a certain way. Worse is the ones that expect a certain outcome despite the fact you told them it doesn't work that way, but they "heard it somewhere" and are sure you are wrong.
Hate: the fact that most sites are designed and developed by I.T. folks who have no idea about business objectives and the whole reason for deploying a site to begin with... well some of you...
Hate - trying to obtain content for the site from the client.
Hate - We want the site to be white followed by a week later, no we think it would look better in blue and we don't want to pay for the changes.
Love: The complexity, the problems solving, designing a completely unique product for each customer.
Hate: Working 120 hours on a $350 site and competing with folks who do it for a 3rd the price.
Hate: Getting phone calls from clients on a Saturday from their sister's house to ask why their nephews computer is doing "something funny"... Yes I probibly could fix it, No this is not included in your web hosting package and no I don't want to.
Hate: When I am thrown into a pool of other webmasters that don't offer anywhere near the same level of services. (granted, I could probably get better at explaining what I do in a short conversation without boring prospects to death)
